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.
