Focus on Innovation

Successful organizations stay in the game by planning and implementing sound strategies for innovation. In today's business world, technology leaders must be poised to innovate.

The real value is in implementing technologies that are going to drive a company's manufacturing, service and product development cycles. That's an essential EMTM lesson both for the survival of large, established firms and for small company startups.

EMTM helps you master the skills needed to lead innovation in organizations of all sizes — through the overall curriculum focus, including the core course in the Management of Technology, as well as in elective courses specific to innovation and entrepreneurship. You will discover how best to integrate technology and management in a dynamic, interactive, and very applied learning environment.

Each year, teams of EMTM students also take part in the university-wide Business Plan Competition sponsored by the Wharton School— testing their ideas and developing business skills in an event that attracts entrants from all areas of Penn. Recent EMTM teams have fared quite well in the competition.
