Technology Management MBA Programs

Information technology managers work in all fields from engineering, computer software development, and products manufacturing to finance, insurance, and medicine. Most information technology managers begin their journey from student to management professional by earning an undergraduate degree in computer science, information technology, or related field. Most information technology management professionals work in the field while earning a technology management MBA online. Having several years of experience upon completion of the MBA will make you that much more attractive to top employers in the field.

While both the online technology management MBA option and the on-campus option provide a high quality education for students, there are several differences that mat not work for some students. The online option might be more difficult as students are expected to be very disciplined and organized. They must also work very well unsupervised. It is the student’s responsibility to log in for a specific number of hours per course, to turn in assignments on or before set deadlines, and to post to discussion boards in a timely and professional manner. A significant portion of the online students grade depends on participation. This is not really the case in on-campus environments where the student need only show up and listen to the lecture.

Some students might also miss the face-to-face interaction with instructors and peers, while others might see this is as a distraction. So, when it comes to choosing an online program over an on-campus program, it really boils down to a matter of preference, as both types of degrees are valid in the career world. When applying for online technology management degree programs, however, you should always check to make sure the school is accredited by a recognized agency. Many online business and technical schools have been accredited by one or more of the following agencies:

-Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)
-Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)
-Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)
-Distance Education Training Council (DETC)
-Accrediting Commission for Career Schools and Colleges of Technology (ACCSCT)
-Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA)
-Distance Education and Training Council (DETC)
-Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)
-Council on Occupational Education (COE)
-Accrediting Commission for Career Schools and Colleges of Technology (ACCSCT)

Regional accrediting agencies are acceptable as well and include the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, New England Association of Schools and Colleges, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Please visit the U.S. Department of Education at Ed.gov for additional agency listings.

Accredited online programs should have the same curriculum requirements as traditional programs. Review the technology management curriculum for a top business school such as UCLA Anderson School of Management or a top technical school such as Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT). Compare MIT’s or UCLA’s program curriculum to the program you have chosen. If the curriculum for the program you have chosen seems a little off and the school has not been accredited by a recognized agency, you should think twice before applying.
