Curriculum

Designed for the agile technology sector, the TMMBA curriculum focuses on relevant, evidence-based challenges, so students can learn a concept one day and apply it at work the next. Course discussions typically focus on technology companies, products, and innovations, and course content is grounded in executive management, strategy and leadership principles, theories, and frameworks. Hands-on case analysis allows students to examine real-world business challenges and learn how to best evaluate a situation by applying concepts and strategies acquired throughout the program.

The TMMBA Program is built on the same platform as the full-time MBA program, so you can expect your professors, learning resources, opportunities and the promise of the Foster brand are all delivered at the highest level.

My study group is made up of six individuals with diverse professional experience. Our range of specialization has been beneficial to the learning experience because each individual has unique strengths to contribute to assignments and group discussions.

Students often cite their study groups as a key benefit to supporting the fast-paced nature of the TMMBA. Each study group consists of 4-6 students and is thoughtfully constructed with a diversity of positions, companies, academic backgrounds, and interests in mind. Study groups offer support, expanding perspectives, lasting friendships, a strong professional network, and are critical to successfully completing this accelerated, 18-month, MBA program.

Go global on a study tour

The international study tour prepares you to think globally. TMMBA has traveled around the world from the Great Wall in China to Machu Picchu in Peru. We’ve met companies ranging from General Electric in Singapore and BMW in Munich to an e-home automation startup in Dubai. Participation in a study tour is optional.
