Project management and product development might be the next step in your engineering and technology career, but there's no reason it should be the last. William & Mary's Management of Engineering and Technology Development Concentration will prepare you to become a strategic business leader who can plan and manage across business disciplines and bring greater opportunity to yourself and your company.
A complete, strategically driven MBA that builds on your technical skills
Using your existing knowledge and experience as a foundation, the Flex MBA's Engineering and Technology Development Concentration will provide you with a thorough grounding in business strategy and strategic decision-making. You'll get:
- The accounting, finance, marketing and operations background you need to understand how different business units function and interact.
- The analytical and decision making skills to approach challenges and recognize opportunities with a broader perspective.
- The communication and leadership skills you need to effectively manage up, down and across the org chart.
- The global perspective you need to function in a business world where new competition and new markets can come from any part of the world.
Comprehensive, yet convenient
All of the courses in the Management of Engineering and Technology Development Concentration are taught on weekday evenings at William & Mary's Peninsula Center in Newport News. In addition to taking the MBA Foundation and MBA Professional Courses that form the core of the Flex MBA, you'll choose at least 12 hours of coursework from the following electives to complete the concentration. (Students earning the concentration must still complete 16.5 total elective hours, and may choose their remaining 4.5 elective hours from any offered electives, whether part of the concentration or not.)
