ACADEMIC BOARD

Reviews

We have new technical programs emerging regularly.  These programs are typically focused on emerging trends and fields (recent examples include data science, intelligent systems, cybersecurity, big data systems, and so on). What we often seem to forget, however, is that technology is used in a context. Communication and coordination between the engineering function and the portions of the business relying on technology are required in order to ensure the needs of the organization are fulfilled. What I really like about this program at Lviv Business School is that it’s one of the few programs in the world that focuses on providing the skills and knowledge to participants that are necessary to take strategic advantage of technology. The impact of this program has been evident, it’s personally been very rewarding to be involved in a program that’s having such a noticeable impact on the region.

Being practically an MBA-level education, the Masters in Technology program positions you for strategic mindset in management, technology, and collaboration. It is long-term focused, helping to open your eyes wider, move forward on several roads at the same time, but it also shows how you can evolve further after the program ends. If your priority is constant personal growth (or maybe even life-long learning), this is the right place to be at. Very knowledgeable experienced lecturers, smart students, and fast-paced learning sets you apart in a positive way and increases your odds of success in business.

What I love about the MSc in Technology Management program where I teach is that the students develop key thinking frameworks and the skills needed to manage businesses which rely on, build upon, and create technology. I was thrilled with the contributions and assignments from students in the cohort which I taught last year — some of the best work of this type which I’ve seen. It demonstrates not only their capability and commitment but also the quality of other parts of the curriculum and their ability to master and apply what they’ve learned.

The MSTM program enables you, first and foremost, to see other people and see how they work. The program allows you to see the real business through the learning process. And this is something you will not see in your work. It is similar to flying on the helicopter and seeing the entire picture. It is also networking, it’s people who also talk about their pain and problems and how they deal with them. Such experience is invaluable.

The program gave me an understanding of what I want. I wanted to experiment. I realized that without trying to build a system from nothing, I would be bored and not interested in further transformations. Since I saw the full picture, everything on the macro and micro levels, I wanted to test everything losing my own energy and time.

Today, technology is more accessible and requires an easier learning curve than ever before in human history. The wide adoption of technological advances is giving rise to new business models and opportunities that did not exist previously, and are likely to change in the future. This rapid pace of technology-driven innovation demands an empirical mindset focused on business value and ethical outcomes. It is imperative for technology managers to have a good understanding of business principles, a sound approach to creating value, and an entrepreneurial spirit. The LvBS MSTM program provides students with this knowledge, practical experience and exposure to world-class experts to grow their business competency, and advance their management and leadership skills — so they can succeed and be agents of change in society.

Challenge your company and colleagues with your energy for change.

Accelerate yourself and perform. Just do it!
