GMU Launches Tech Management Master's
By Tania Anderson
The class of 1998 at George Mason University will include a new breed of graduate. Through a new master's degree program conceived by officials at the Fairfax, Va.-based university and 10 local high-tech companies, 20 graduates will earn the title of master of technology management.
The GMU program focuses on the business and management of information technology professional services companies and telecommunications companies.
Unlike an engineering degree or a technical degree, the program focuses on the business and management of software, information systems development and telecommunications, said Evan Anderson, the program director.
"Many of the other technology management degrees around the country focus on process and manufacturing technology," said Anderson.
