The AGSM Graduate Certificate in Technology Management is a complete stand-alone qualification and can be undertaken as a pathway to an AGSM Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. It has been designed to align organisational and technology management fundamentals for individuals who wish to understand, analyse and adapt to today’s challenging and hyper-competitive market.

This program teaches the understandings of how to use data to create competitive advantages with innovative management, strategy and technology, to succeed in an increasingly complex market. The program introduces managers to several techniques that are relevant for managerial decision-making, such as data preparation, data analysis, data visualisation and data storytelling, and equips graduates with the ability to establish business processes and technologies as differentiators for success.

Supporting leaders who intend to apply their entrepreneurial spirit to innovating within established organisations, as well as managers whose goal it is to build and manage innovation and technology processes in the organisation. For those with entrepreneurial aspirations, start-up creation and corporate innovation concepts are structured throughout the program with courses that uniquely link students with innovators and successful start-up CEOs.
