Your Fellow Students All Share a Passion for Excellence
Our community is a realistic reflection of the global workplace—a mosaic of knowledge and experiences that you’ll find stimulating, enlightening, and fun.
Since the start of Mason's Technology Management program in 1998, we've had more than 550 graduates—alumni who are having successful careers as CIOs, corporate and division presidents, entrepreneurs, project and program managers, consultants, and technology specialists. Our alumni are in industries spanning the full range of technology management including IT, cybersecurity, robotics, health IT, and telecom and are contributing and having an impact in business, government, nonprofits, and society overall.
Students have an average of 15 years of work experience and almost 25 percent of students already have graduate degrees. They are vice presidents, directors, project managers, senior software developers, network managers, and technology and IT consultants. They usually have responsibility for project leadership, budgets and control, client relationships, business development, technology assessment, or business planning.
Throughout the program’s core curriculum, you take all classes within your cohort, consisting of up to 48 students. The combined career experiences of those within your cohort provide an enriched classroom experience. You immediately form a network of business professionals you can rely on for help within the classroom and in a professional capacity upon graduating.
You also form “learning teams,” smaller groups of students you study and work with on various projects and assignments. Many of the colleagues you meet in these learning teams will end up being your friends for life, your support group—and maybe even your future business partners.
