Networking

They are vice presidents, directors, project managers, senior software developers, network managers, and technology and IT consultants.

Mason’s technology management degree program students have the benefit of learning from their classmates; you are embedded in a cohort of likeminded professionals for the duration of the 16-month program and work with them extensively analyzing case studies, completing a capstone consulting project, and participating in the weeklong global residency. These bonds last long after you receive your diploma, with classmates from your technology management degree program often becoming your future business partners, trusted advisors, or colleagues.
