EMTM Projects

Executive Master's in Technology Management

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

This MSc programme is offered in Waterloo over 11 months in an alternative weekend format. 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 2019 projects include:

  • Customer's Perceived Value and Adoption Intention of IoT-Based Products
  • The Role of Formal Networks in Helping Female Entrepreneurs Scale their Business
  • Change Adoption Challenges with Transitioning to Agile Software Development
  • Who is Running this Place? Artificial Intelligence's Leap into Strategic Decision Making
