Founded by McCormick Tribune Professor of Technology Mohanbir Sawhney in June 2001, the Center for Research in Technology & Innovation (CRTI) at the Kellogg School of Management plays a pivotal role in understanding, solving and forecasting challenges facing innovation managers today and in coming years.

Specifically, the center studies technology’s role in improving business performance, promoting organizational effectiveness, driving innovation and creating competitive advantage. Top faculty members address management challenges using a breadth of professional and academic expertise — including skill in marketing, invention, engineering, strategy and law — offering a synthesis of these perspectives in their research and teaching.

The center leads the Kellogg Technology Industry Management Program, one of the school’s core courses of study for full- and part-time MBA students. The teachings of CRTI faculty members have global impact via the Kellogg School’s executive MBA partner programs in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Through its custom and open-enrollment professional development programs, the center attracts companies such as Microsoft, Sony, DuPont and Nissan who turn to the Kellogg School for management education tailored to their needs.

The center and its faculty are engaged in collaborative research with Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Mitsubishi Corporation, Motorola, NCR Teradata, Sony and other industry leaders.
