Ted Rogers MBA Program at the Ted Rogers School of Management

Technology and innovation are transforming the way we live and work, remaking industry boundaries with new ways of delivering products and services. In this rapidly changing world, employers need professionals who
understand the pace of change and the impact of innovation in virtually
all sectors. The Ted Rogers MBA in the Management of Technology and
Innovation (MBA-MTI) program provides graduates with skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. You will immediately apply your knowledge to find practical solutions to the complex problems created by technology and innovation.

This is not a technical program. Students of the MBA-MTI program
graduate with the skills needed to manage within companies that are
focused on tech and innovation. Many of our students with non-tech
backgrounds join the MBA-MTI program as a means to pursue careers in
project management, consulting, research and analysis.You won't learn to code in this program, but you will learn how technology is changing organizations, why it's important, and how to communicate that to colleagues.

"I was a liberal arts major and working in a non-tech or innovation related field before I applied for my MBA. I knew I wanted to work in IT, but on the management side - to help fill the gap between those who plan IT related projects, and those who implement them. That's exactly what I'm doing now at as a Consultant at tulkita Technologies Inc."

- Gabriela Urbanik, Class of 2012
