Leadership First

Students excel as tech leaders not by becoming fluent in one technology or another: They learn the art of leadership from professors and practitioners at the top of their respective fields. They apply learnings practically — through case studies, internships and in their careers. The Easton Technology Management Center provides students numerous relevant, tailored opportunities to succeed.

Courses

The Easton Center curriculum is focused on technology and innovation and is taught by faculty and industry professionals. Students learn about emerging technologies and their business applications.

Speaker/Panel Events

Our showcase events include the Insights Conference (formerly Big Data Conference) and the Innovate Conference (formerly CES@Anderson). We also host the Easton Executive Speaker Series, where previous speakers have included Jeetu Patel, Chief Product Officer at Box and Ravi Jacob (’84), Corporate VP and Treasurer at Intel.

Workshops

Easton workshops are designed to help students learn skills they will need to become future tech leaders. Our workshops include product management, design thinking, as well as technical topics such as SQL and Python.

 

Get a deeper understanding of tech and gain an edge by specializing in technology management.

 

The specialization in Technology Management (the Easton Center Technology Management Certificate) is earned by completing required courses and fulfilling additional non-academic criteria that give students a distinct advantage when pursuing careers in the technology sector. Upon completion, you will receive a UC-senate approved certificate and get to wear an exclusive Easton Center graduation stole at your commencement ceremony.
