Course Language
The knowledge students have obtained during the first semester of the Management of Technology program is rather varied and diverse, from economics to theories of technological change and from human resource management and marketing to corporate governance. Although the first four modules of the MoT curriculum are designed to give students knowledge and understanding of the effective management of the development of high technology products in a turbulent and dynamic environment, it might be difficult to integrate the different theories and bodies of knowledge. Even more difficult is the issue how to apply the repertoire of MoT skills and capabilities. The Integration Moment at the end of the first semester is designed to help students to integrate the knowledge from the first semester and to get acquainted with the MoT skills, and the way knows how and skills are mutually dependent.
