Residencies for the Executive Masters in Technology Management

The Center hosts several multi-day residencies per year for the Executive M.S. in Technology Management (School of Professional Studies). Residencies are part of a 16-month program that prepares senior technology professionals to develop a strategic mindset, fine-tune their speaking and presentation skills, and understand core business performance through the use of technology. Global trends point to the merging of the tech and business worlds, which means digital and technology professionals need a different set of skills than they did 20, or even 10 years ago. The program therefore emphasizes the importance of using technology in business for strategic advantage and improved productivity. At the program's core spans a network of more than 150 executive mentors. Each student works closely with a C-level tech executive to shape a real-world challenge or objective into a technology solution for their master's projects. Graduates typically assume positions as CIO, CTO, CAO, COO, CEO, or CSO, as entrepreneurs. The program is also ideal for those pursuing CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor). The program is led by Arthur Langer, Director of the Center for Technology Management at Columbia University and Academic Director of Columbia's Executive Master of Science in Technology Management.
