Executive MBA Programs in Technology

Compare 2 EMBA Programs in Technology

Working as a technology executive can be demanding. Earning a higher degree can help you cement your place as a leader in the technology department of your business. Keeping your job while earning your degree is often possible with an EMBA in Technology.

What is an EMBA in Technology? EMBA programs focus on professionals who have reached executive positions within their companies. This particular program examines technology and management by focusing on product design and development and managing information systems. Core business classes may also be required, such as accounting for managers, marketing management, project management and more. Each of the classes usually has a spin that applies each topic to your role as an executive leader in your business. Programs may last for one to two years.

While some of these courses may seem intensive, the biggest benefit to an EMBA program is that you can usually attend classes while you are working full time. Many courses may even be available online, which makes them perfect for those who are in need of distance learning options.

The cost of earning a technology EMBA depends on the institution providing the program and how long the program lasts. If you will be required to travel for part of your studies, that cost is likely to be in addition to your tuition. Thoroughly research your program to find out all of the costs involved.

Graduates with an EMBA in Technology may be able to step into higher leadership roles in their organizations. They may find themselves qualified to become IT managers, new project managers, or managers over product design and development. Accounting, human resources and marketing also are possible areas of management employment for such graduates.

To apply, prospective students can usually fill out an application online. Certain requirements may need to be met, such as five years of work experience along with letters of recommendation and an interview.
