Management of Technology

“Our mission is to train the world’s foremost experts and leaders in the Management of Technology”

The doctoral program features intensive courses in research methods and applications as well as strong supervision of the students’ own projects, together with numerous group activities such as seminars, conferences, or retreats. Our alumni feedback consistently highlights the outstanding quality of education, the stimulating and generous environment for doctoral studies, as well as the great job prospects in academia and industry upon graduation.

The doctoral program in Management of Technology covers a broad range of areas such as Business Analytics, Corporate Strategy, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Market Design, Operations Management, and Technology Policy. It offers in-depth courses and research opportunities in an interdisciplinary environment, pooling resources from a variety of research units on the EPFL campus and beyond, including Engineering, Finance, Mathematics, the Swiss Program for Doctoral Students in Economics, and the EuroTech universities.

New Method for Quantifying Commitment in Games

— Prof. Weber’s latest research paper on “Quantifying Commitment in Nash Equilibria,” forthcoming in the International Game Theory Review, proposes a player-specific measure of commitment, on a scale of 0 to 1, for any Nash equilibrium of a dynamic game. The findings, first presented at the 2017 Conference on Game Theory and Management (GTM) in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the 2017 European Meeting on Game Theory (SING13) at the Université Paris-Dauphine in France, relate to Prof. Weber’s earlier work on optimal commitment (Weber 2014). The proposed measure of commitment is the first of its kind for generic games.
