Industry Management Major
The TECH major is available to students who matriculated at Kellogg in Fall 2011 or earlier.
Technology is transforming both consumer products and the day-to-day operations of the companies that produce. Leading firms often stay ahead of the competition with innovative products and procedures, yet there is a well-documented digital divide between managers who can harness the power of technology and those who cannot. The Technology Industry Management (TECH) major equips students to manage technology and innovation and provides them with an in-depth understanding of how enterprise technologies can make businesses more successful.
"Horizontal" courses expose students to the fundamentals of enterprise technologies, management of technology projects and portfolios, innovation management, and technology strategy, while "vertical" courses focus on the managerial challenges in creating and marketing technology products and services. The major is useful for students who wish to work as product managers in technology companies, consultants in strategy consulting firms or as entrepreneurs. It is also useful for future general managers who will sponsor initiatives involving enterprise technology or new technology products and services.
