The technology management degree is designed to allow a student who has earned an associate's degree (AAS, AA, AS, or AOS) in a technical or professional area (or at least 60 credits toward such a degree) to complete a bachelor's degree through this upper-division program. Students seeking entrance into the program will enter at the junior level since they will have already successfully completed at least 60 credits toward an associate-level degree in a technical area. The junior and senior years will have an emphasis in the development of business and management skills with a focus on technology applications. The program includes a significant internship in the final semester of the senior year.

A major feature of the degree is the program design that allows students with a lower-level professional/technical degree to advance into management/administrative positions in their respective professional or technical areas. It is also designed to provide them with the skills necessary to run a small-to-medium size business in their area of study or to manage a department, a division, or even their own business.
