Operations & Technology Management (O&TM) is focused on the strategic, operational, and tactical planning of the organization, responsible for the execution and control of hard and soft resources that are deployed to deliver products and services to customers in a sustainable and responsible way. The “technology” part of “operations and technology management” has become paramount, and understanding both the potential and implications of current and emerging technologies—such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, blockchains, etc.—is a necessary part of a leader’s education. However, the technology itself will not create long-term competitive advantage without the knowledge of how to operationally deploy it effectively. A concentration in operations and technology management (O&TM) will prepare you to navigate the complexities of the contemporary business world while helping to position organizations to compete and win in the future.

The Social Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Enterprise concentration allows you the opportunity to explore current themes at the intersection of business and society. While 20 years ago it was commonplace for MBA programs to offer courses in Business Ethics, today’s business climate requires a more expansive view of the role of business with respect to the challenges facing the world in which we live.

Courses in this concentration focus on the why, the what, and the how of simultaneous creation of economic value and societal value, a concept known as shared value. From the creation of business ventures specifically to address social needs, to the integration of social and environmental considerations into corporate strategy, this concentration takes the theory and practice of business management and applies them to better meet the needs of diverse stakeholders. The skills learned—through theory, case analysis, and hands-on application in local and global settings—will prepare you to make an important contribution to your organization and to the broader society.
