Technology & Change with Boston University

Boston University

Boston University Master Class for Tech Executives

Technology executives no longer support change—they drive it. Organisations worldwide depend on their technology leaders to create value, drive results, and harness the power of disruptive innovation. Join the Technology & Change programme and lead your organisation forward into a new era of value through transformation.

The Technology & Change programme will help you to seize opportunities in the rapidly evolving digital business landscape. You will use pioneering research from BU scholars to identify, weigh, and communicate the strategic competitive advantages shaping your agenda. You will study the best practices of top global companies, their successes and challenges in creating value through disruptive innovation. And you will focus on your responsibilities as a technology leader: understanding platform shift, positioning your IT organisation, measuring results, and leading truly transformative change.

Where it Happens

The program takes place at Boston University’s Questrom Executive Leadership Center, which was built to accommodate professionals with a design promoting comfort, teamwork, and technological innovation. There, you’ll learn from dedicated, world-renowned faculty, recognised for translating research into practice. You will work collaboratively, on complex business problems, real-world scenarios, and an in-class project with an exceptional cohort of global technology executives.
