The technology management degree is designed to allow a student who has earned an associate degree (AAS, AA, AS, or AOS) in a technical or professional area (or at least 60 credits toward such a degree), to complete a bachelors degree through this upper-division program. A major feature of the degree is the program design that allows students with a lower-level professional/technical degree to advance into the management/administrative positions in their respective professional/technical areas. Graduates of this program are eligible for employment in many industries which require both a technical and business background.
Students are required to complete a 12-credit internship in their final semester. Students with a catalog term of fall 2017 or later who cannot complete an internship, or who can justify taking upper-level coursework in lieu of an internship, must complete an appeal demonstrating why they are unable to complete the required internship (e.g., extenuating circumstances, foundational coursework for MBA). Internship appeal form (pdf)
Students seeking permission to take four upper-level classes in lieu of completing an internship must fill out an appeal form with their justification along with a faculty member providing a statement of support. Internship appeal forms will be emailed to the department secretary at: firstname.lastname@example.org or hand delivered to the department secretary at 204 EJ Brown Hall.
Internship appeal forms will be reviewed by the business department, and a decision will be rendered. Appeal forms are due no later than Oct. 15 for the fall semester and March 15 for the spring semester.
Students will be notified by their advisor regarding the appeal decision within 30 college calendar days after the due date.
Employment and continuing education rate of 100%. Ninety percent are employed, while 10% transferred to continue their education.
"The technology management program was perfect for me because it put a management twist to my existing technical skills. Now, I'm able to work more independently and professionally." -Josh Lenahan, '16
