Brilliant technology doesn’t always translate into commercial success. In fact, the best technology doesn’t always win, or even make it to the market. The ability to take an innovative technology, develop a viable business model and product, and bring it to market requires a complex set of skills that EMTM is well positioned to develop.
With EMTM’s curriculum structure and wide range of electives, you can tailor your program experience to support an interest in technology commercialization.
- EMTM courses such as Decision Modeling, R&D Management, Introduction to New Venture Initiation, Technology Entrepreneurship, and Legal Aspects of Entrepreneurship offer knowledge and frameworks that can be applied to technologies of all types and organizations of all sizes.
- Technology electives, including Advanced Materials, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Drug Discovery, and Introduction to Biotechnology and Bionanotechnology, expose students to Penn Engineering’s deep expertise in diverse technologies and provide the opportunity to explore the frontiers of a wide range of emerging technologies.
- Additional management electives such as Real Options Analysis, Models and Tools for Marketing Tactics & Strategy, and Supply Chain Management draw on the strength of the Wharton faculty and give students the tools needed to launch successful technology ventures.
Students and alumni involved in technology commercialization report a strong correlation between EMTM and their increased confidence, skill and success, whether they are interested in commercializing a product of their own research, advising others, or working for a Fortune 500 firm.
