Technology Management Career Paths

It is the role of the tehnology manager to make decisions about the organization's operational use of the applicable technology while taking into account how the decisions will affect the organization's budget, employees, customers, and profitability. When seeking a technology manager, employers prefer candidates with a strong technology background as well as a solid understanding of business practices.

For those entering this field with a bachelor degree but no work experience in IT or business, typical entry-level positions include: customer support specialist, help desk representative, and junior positions in database development, web site development, analysis, or programming. Graduates with some experience in the field may also qualify for supervisory roles in customer support departments and entry-level project management positions.

Career Advancement

Upon receiving professional experience in the technology field, graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Technology Management degree will be able to explore opportunities in management such as:

  • Chief Technology Officer – responsibilities include evaluating new technologies to determine which would benefit the company, advising upper management on benefits/drawbacks of the technology, and creating/overseeing implementation strategies.
  • Project Manager – oversee the budgets and schedules for technology-related projects (such as software or hardware upgrades); work with internal and external customers, vendors/suppliers, consultants and trainers to coordinate the development and implementation of projects

Work Environment

Technology managers work at least 40 hours per week in an office or production setting. When needed, the manager must be available to work additional hours to meet deadlines or address technology-related emergencies. The technology manager should also spend time learning about new trends in the field in order to ensure their company is not falling behind the competition due to outdated technology.

Professionals in this field typically receive a comprehensive benefits package including healthcare and retirement plans (such as 401(k), profit-sharing and/or company stock). Since technology managers spend many hours at a computer, they must take precautions against computer-related ailments such as eye strain and carpel tunnel.
