Columbia University's Center for Technology Management (CTM) is a body dedicated to exploring the intersections of technology and business and consists of faculty from different schools at Columbia University, key technology industry leaders, and a group of mentors from the Executive M.S. in Technology Management (EMSTM) program.
As part of expanding its reach in the global arena, the CTM plans to open a centre in Paris later this year. The CTM director, Arthur Langer, said that they were planning on opening a unit in India as there has been an increase in the number of Indian technology professionals enrolling for the programme in Columbia. The CTM is looking at introducing their technology management programme to the Chief Information Officers (CIO) in India and is expecting an active participation from them.
CTM is dedicated to exploring the intersections of technology and business by engaging research, teaching, and public discussion of technology management issues. It enables the students to explore questions about technology, like its workings, its dynamism, and the disruption of causes. It also brings together students, scholars, and technology executives to determine how technology affects an organization's competitive advantage, structures, management, best practices, and operational excellence.
CTM's two-year technology management programme is highly recommended by many Indian entrepreneurs and they say that it assists in nurturing future technology leaders and helps them understand the requirements for managing large-scale corporations.
