Technology Management Specialization
Students can earn a specialization in Technology Management by completing a set of requirements (both course-related and non-academic), providing you with a distinct advantage when pursuing careers in the technology sector. Upon completion in June, you will receive a UC-senate approved certificate and an Easton Center graduation sash to wear during the commencement ceremony.
Join our student mailing list to receive our weekly newsletter with upcoming workshops/events, mentoring sessions, and other activities we offer throughout the year. All UCLA Anderson students are welcome to sign up.
If you are interested in pursuing the specialization in Technology Management, please indicate this on the signup form and you will be added to the requirements tracker.
Enrichment activities take students beyond the classroom to help them achieve and further develop professional and personal goals. Activities that fulfill this requirement include participating in a mentoring session and completing an academic internship.
Many students fulfill this requirement by volunteering at an Easton conference. Other options are to write an insightful post for Tech Talk @ Anderson or introduce Easton leadership to a potential speaker.
A summer internship in a tech company or in a tech related role is required for all full-time Easton students (not required for FEMBA and EMBA students).
“I wanted to broaden my experience in the tech space. There is a lot of change in technology, which disrupts commonly held views of how we do business. As leaders, we want to take advantage of new opportunities and mitigate any negative effects.”
“I started with the Mobile Industry course in the spring of 2020 based on feedback from alumni. That course helped me reaffirm my decision to complete the specialization.”
“I wanted to broaden my horizons. The diverse perspectives offered to me by Easton, coupled with the depth of professional expertise, have helped me grow immensely. I utilize workshops, events and conversations from Easton interactions in my career daily. It has positively altered my train of thought when analyzing and interacting with the world.”
