EMTM Projects

Executive Master's in Technology Management

The Lazaridis EMTM program addresses the overlapping disciplines of business and technology. It is designed for senior decision-makers facing ever-growing complexity, global competition and disruption. It was created to address a gap in executive management education in Canada–the development of leaders specific to innovative enterprises.

This is an MSc programme offered in Waterloo over 11 months in an alternative weekend format. A work-integrated approach to learning is central to the EMTM, and the program is part of the Lazaridis Institute. In the EMTM, participants learn about design thinking, business transformation, technology road-mapping, market awareness, global economy issues, financing decisions, intellectual property, the learning organization, leverage networks, and performance bench-marking.

As an MSc, degree requirements also include completion of a Major Research Project (MRP). Examples of the 2018 projects include:

  • Recurring Revenue Growth: Does it Require a Business Model Transformation? A B2B Perspective
  • Comparing the Capabilities of Phone-Skilled Contact Centre Agents and Digital Service Agents
  • How do Organizations Adjust their HR Policies, Practices and Culture in Preparation for Unexpected Disruption
  • Innovation is the New Black: Innovation and the Rhetoric of Corporate Annual Reports
  • Coexistence of AI and Care Providers to Delivering Better Quality of Life for Seniors
