Course: MGT 340. Management of Emerging Technologies (3)
This Management of Emerging Technologies course takes an exciting twist to the traditional management of technologies course and allows students to explore how firms can develop innovations, create value, gain a competitive advantage, and generate revenue from the latest emerging technologies. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the management of technology and innovation concepts and models and then links this to current emerging technologies and their potential. Emerging technologies will be updated on an annual basis. Topics covered include how innovations develop, diffusion S-curves from both technology and market adoption perspectives, how industry dynamics influence the success of innovations, and the formulation and implementation of a technological innovation strategy. As future managers of firms that utilize technology (most firms do these days), understanding how new technology and innovation align with and enable firm strategy is extremely important.
