Graduate management of technology education: a global survey, critical issues and emerging trends
Over the past few years, several universities have started offering graduate programmes in Management of Technology (MOT). These MOT programmes have originated from different academic schools (business, engineering, etc.) and hence, there is considerable diversity in terms of focus, key themes emphasised, student backgrounds, etc. As this young and dynamic field evolves, it is critical that we take frequent snapshots of these programmes so that we build on each other's strengths and identify common frameworks that provide direction to MOT education. This paper reports on an international study of graduate MOT programmes conducted recently covering schools in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific regions. The study results highlight the emerging trends in terms of programme themes, technologies, and management issues addressed.
