Symposium will address emerging educational challenges and opportunities in tech management and entrepreneurship

Leaders in technology management from business and academia will join forces at a special symposium held by Polytechnic’s Department of Management on Thursday, May 8.

“Modern Technology Management and Entrepreneurship: Emerging Educational Challenges and Opportunities" will feature presentations and an interactive discussion aimed at linking best practices in management education with better performance in innovation and technology management and entrepreneurship.

The symposium is part of Poly’s efforts to enhance New York City's position as a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship by connecting its educational and research activities with action learning and commercialization.

It will also highlight Poly’s very recently and successfully launched Innovation and Technology Management MBA program and its highly successful flagship Executive Master's programs in Management of Technology (MOT) and Telecommunications and Information Management (TIM).

Alumni, students and applicants in the Management Department’s other distinguished programs, e.g., MS in Management (MSM), MS in Organizational Behavior (MSOB), BS in Business and Technology Management (BS-BTM) and PhD in Technology Management (PhD-TM), will find this symposium particularly relevant. Students and working professionals planning managerial careers built on a technology foundation will also gain considerable insight from attending this special event.
