Preamble

 

Many of us invest in advanced education to improve our knowledge, wisdom, and in many ways, develop our character. We do this to prepare ourselves for future responsibilities and challenges. For many of us, these challenges often involve dealing with technology as a key issue. In addition to our long-term goals and career progression, employers expect us to be able to perform our work well and better. The MTIM program is developed to address these long-term and short-term needs. The curriculum for this program was designed with MJIIT’s Japanese counterpart. It emulates the Technology Management programs offered by Japanese universities. This makes the program unique in that it offers students with more than the typical material in textbooks that are mostly written from a Western perspective. By including Japanese management models and practices in the course, it offers students with a broader range of models and frameworks to use in making business decisions. The program will be taught by an international faculty that includes Japanese and Japanese educated faculty members.

The Program

 The MTIM program is designed for executives and managers who are looking to develop their business acumen and leadership skills for advancement to more senior positions. Specifically, the focus of this program is to develop the necessary competencies needed to lead and manage in technology based situations. The curriculum for this program is based on a leadership competency model that addresses these goals.

The MTIM Advantage

  • The teaching method used is one that encourages students to question, critically examine issues and ideas to stimulate creativity
  • MTIM also balances theory and practice by using experiential exercises that links concepts and application.
  • The MTIM program is  unique with the inclusion of Management Competency Training (MCT) that will develop students’ skills in contemporary management techniques. This ensures that students will possess the competencies to apply at work what they learn upon graduating from the program.
  • Learning experience will include study trip to Japan (tuition fee includes economy air fare and budget accommodation for trip to Japan).
  • The MTIM program is taught by an international faculty, including faculty members from Japan.

Management Competency Training

This ensures that MTIM students develop a balance of conceptual and instrumental knowledge.
