  • Hello MSTM World!

    Stay hungry, stay foolish. Those were the closing words of Steve Jobs Speech at the Commencement ceremony at Stanford in 2005, and are the opening words for this blog.


    MS in Technology Management(MS TM). What is this?? I am sure everyone out there has different meanings to what technology management stands for. "Does the program talk about inventing technology or is it management of information technology (IT)". "Is it just meant for computer science or engineering undergrads to move forward with an additional masters degree in their field?" No, no, no and No. MS TM is a masters program with focus on management and business. It develops leadership skills and teaches you to become a good manager. That is the reason the course is in the BUSINESS SCHOOL. My undergraduate education background is in Engineering but I co-founded a company in education sector in India. I was the COO and did a lot of managing without formal education in management. I have always been an entrepreneur and now by being a part of this program I have so many likeminded people around me. The professors understand the value of being innovative and the students encourage and challenge your ideas at the same time. Its a brilliant cocktail to kick start your career or to take a break when you have been working for a long time. MS TM is a brilliant program for students all over the world who want to build their managerial skills. The classroom is a mix of 13-15 different nationalities, and you get to listen and participate in 13-15 million ideas and discussions through the course of your program.
