The MMS in Technology Management is for students who wish to cultivate skills and knowledge related to innovation, entrepreneurship, and technology. The curriculum has four components: i) a required internship in the summer before the program’s start, ii) a set of required classes, iii) a set of pre-approved SOM electives, and iv) a distributional requirement in SEAS. In total students are required to take 36 units of course credit where 4 units corresponds to a full-semester course.

Student course selection (both at SEAS and SOM) must be approved by the program director.

This list of courses is not exhaustive or static. Students may petition the program director to include an elective not on the pre-approved list. For illustration we provide two hypothetical course schedules. Descriptions of all courses can be accessed in the Yale course catalog.
