Abstract:
This paper describes a Master’s Program on Management of Technology (MMT) at Aalborg University. The program is a post-experience education focusing mainly on engineers with more than three years of practical experience. The idea underlying the division of the MMT program into four terms is primarily to create an understanding of strategy and strategic challenges (first term) and to relate these to organizational options and challenges (second term). Subsequently, the program strives to ensure a basis for holistic planning of corporate development. During the third term, focus is on planning of corporate development, and during the fourth term managerial aspects in connection with implementation are addressed. As a part of the curriculum at Aalborg University the program is designed as a problem-based and project-based learning initiative.
