Dear TMMBA,
Will my diploma say I have a “TMMBA”? How does it work, and what will my credentials be in the marketplace?

Dear TMMBA,
I have determined I need an MBA to go further in my career, but does “technology management” mean the program is designed mainly for IT managers or others immersed in the bits and bytes of technology?

-Not 2 Techie

Dear NOT 2 TECHIE,
The TM before MBA speaks more to the student cohort than the course content. The curriculum delivers an excellent graduate business education that will make your MBA a powerful asset. And while the class discussion, case studies and business trends will focus more on the tech sector, none of the material is technical in nature. Our students find that they can relate to the tech sector focus, and it helps provide context whether you’re coming from accounting or engineering.

18 months = ???

Dear TMMBA,

I love that TMMBA is just 18 months – but how can it be? It must be pretty intense. I don’t want to be in exile for 18 months while I try and keep up. I’d miss my spouse and two little ones too much. If I become a student in the TMMBA Program, will I be burning the candle at both ends?

-18 months = ???

Dear 18 = ???,

The answer to your question is: no. While the program is intense, it will also equip you for better time management along the way. While you will strive to balance work, family and school, you will have a tight-knit study group to serve as part of a crucial support network. Additionally, the program provides some extra services to make it convenient for you and save you time.

From “Tell me about Foster” to all the way to “How will I survive an 18-month program?” So, we’ve decided to respond to myriad inquiries about the MBA for technology professionals.

Dear TMMBA,
I live and work in Redmond and I heard about your program and love the fact that is located on the Eastside in Kirkland – how convenient! Just wondering if I will get the same benefits as students on the UW Seattle campus?  

-Sleepless on the Eastside

Dear Sleepless on the Eastside,
You are correct, our classes are all based at the Eastside Executive Center in Kirkland – central to both sides of Lake Washington (more than just a coincidence!). But do not fear – you have full access to the benefits offered on the main campus including libraries, clubs, guest speaker events and more.

Dear TMMBA,
I’m a mid-level manager at a technology company and am taking on a more strategic role and may even start managing a small group of software developers.  I’m thinking an MBA is the way to go, but my job is super demanding and I can’t take time off work for an MBA. Help!
