    I’m reaching out to people on campuses who work with students or student clubs and organizations having an interest in science, technology and entrepreneurship.  I’d like to invite your students to learn more about the innovative new Master of Technology Management (MTM) Program at UC Santa Barbara. 

    This program is an alternative to an MBA, and it focuses solely on Technology Management to teach students how to manage the people and processes of successful technology ventures, both at startups and established companies, all in a focused 9-month curriculum.

    If you think this is something your students would like to know about, please do share this email and/or the attached flyer with them.   Our next admissions deadline is April 6, 2016 and they should apply early for the best chances of financial aid.

    Please also feel free to contact me personally, or our program manager, Elizabeth Acebu (bethacebu@tmp.ucsb.edu), with any questions, or encourage your students to do so.
