What Courses Will I Take?

The courses you take in a technology management associate's degree program depend on your school's requirements. In some cases, your program will focus heavily on business practices with training in computers and office technology. In the case of degree completion programs, you'll take some courses in business and electives in a technological area of your choice.

In the business courses, you'll learn about management, communication and human resources. Other courses include accounting, marketing and speaking. Business law is also a common requirement. Computer and technology-based courses include basic computers, microcomputers and word processors. Additionally, you might take elective courses in areas such as computer-aided drafting, information systems or design.

How Can I Further My Education?

If you choose to take your education beyond an associate's degree, you have plenty of options. There are degree completion programs that allow you to build on an associate's degree to earn a Bachelor of Science in Technology Management. You can even find online degree completion programs that allow you to study on your own schedule, though deadlines and due dates are enforced similar to on-campus programs.

Beyond a bachelor's degree, you'll find opportunities to earn master's degrees and graduate certificates in technology management. Depending on the master's degree program, you can specialize in distance education, emergency management, project management and more.
