What do alumni say about the Masters in Technology Management Program and their IT careers?

“The synergy is fantastic and as a result the students are engaged and the staff is passionate about your success. Every day I spent at Mason turned into insight and strength the very next day at the office, as I suddenly found myself able to understand and add value to areas of work that had previously been inaccessible to me. The breadth of understanding across program management, execution, financials, strategy, and people skills gave me the ability to contribute meaningfully at a higher level. I found my insight, recommendations, and burgeoning leadership appreciated, recognized and rewarded.” -David Gagliano ’02, Deputy to Chief Technology Officer, Acentia

“When I began the program I was an individual contributor on a government contract. I challenged myself to apply the information being provided during our class sessions throughout the week, as I performed an ever-increasing variety of managerial tasks. The School of Management was remarkable in its ability to pair real-world business with the right mix of current and relevant academic resources.”  -Alfred N. D. Smith III ’04, Vice President, Welkin

From the first course, Sullivan knew his Mason education was helping him in his career. At the time, he was facing a challenging situation, managing a team that was distributed across three offices. “In the first few months in Interpersonal Dynamics we learned strategies that were directly applicable to managing a geographically dispersed team. The class made me a much more confident manager.”Matthew P. Sullivan ’04, Associate, Kelley Drye & Warren
