With a master’s in technology management from Florida Tech, graduates combine advanced business and leadership skills with expertise in technology processes to become senior-level technology experts able to meet the challenges of a global organization in a rapidly changing world.
Technology is the knowledge of how to combine processes and things to meet or generate needs at the next level. Technology is more than hardware (product) and software (process). Technology also includes “humanware” (people), which is the developed knowledge instilled in or generated by humans through education. Technology takes you to the next higher level of performance, hence the concepts of high-tech/low-tech and technology transfer.
Technology disrupts. Technology changes. Technology causes obsolescence.
