New Mexico Tech MEM Peter C. Anselmo Warren J. Ostergren Intel 22 March 2006
Today’s Topics A Brief Overview of the Tech MEM Program Goals Offerings Implementation – how to apply now
Why? Serve Engineer and Applied Scientist population Economic Development in New Mexico Fit with NMT Mission and Strategic Plan
Strategic Issues Quality Content –Dedicated research faculty and support Quality Delivery –Dedicated DE group, live courses, student/participant interactions maximized Optimize the Challenge and Overall Participant Experience
Program Design Patterned after existing Programs –MIT, UM/Rolla, CSM Newer Programs –UT/Austin, Stanford Similar to some Systems Engineering and IE Programs –USC, UVa New Program - UCSD
Key Features of NMT MEM Emphasis on Computation and Analysis –NMT students expect to work Programming and Software Components –EMGT 502 features VBA/Excel Systems Approach –Curriculum content and view(s) of the firm Entrepreneurship Flavor –Unstructured Problems –We’re working on collaborations with UNM, NMSU
More Features Dedicated, Interdisciplinary Faculty –Everybody but 1 in MGT Dept has undergrad science and/or engineering degree –Engineers, Computer Scientists also teaching Research Connection –ICASA Currency Project –Other faculty research projects
Program 30 Credit Hours total –21 Core Hours Includes Capstone Org Entrepreneurship course –6 Hours of Electives Engineering electives actively encouraged 3-Hour Professional Project –Workplace application preferred –Professional paper and presentation required
Remote Site Delivery We have a self-imposed limit of 4 Virtual Classrooms –Includes 2 in Albuquerque Quality delivery issue We can stream to anywhere with a reasonable Net connection Tapes, DVDs available to anybody
Remote Site Delivery We teach each course live once per year – at least We also offer asynchronous delivery –Via nonlive stream –In “nonlive” semesters during designated times when instructors monitor the stream, answer questions, and enable audio discussions
Summer ’06 Offerings EMGT 503 (Core) – Information Systems in Technology Organizations One elective course EMGT 581 (Elective) – Directed Study EMGT 590 (Core) – Final Project
Fall ‘06 Offerings Fall ’05 – begins the week of 21 August –EMGT 501 – Mgt Science (Core) –EMGT 502 – Financial Management (C) –EMGT 506 – Managing Tech Resources (C) –EMGT 571 – Microeconomics (E) –EMGT 572 – New Product Development (E) –Other Engineering Electives available from other NMT Departments – Contact NMT Distance Ed office (835 6908) for details
Location, Location TVI – Probably the Workforce Training Center at Alameda and I25 Our current Albuquerque virtual classroom(s) location is next door at 901 University SE –Plenty of Parking –It’s working great Other options exist
1 FAQ Differences between NMT MEM and a MBA Content and Context are the two main difference areas
Content Differences More Analytical – we do math and modeling in many courses Modeling and Simulation focus 30 Hours vs 48 (or more) Project is a mini-thesis – not found in many MBA programs
Context Differences Targeted Audience – people with technical backgrounds moving into managerial positions Focus on projects instead of teams, though there are plenty of team projects Interdisciplinary faculty and focus
Outcomes Our working-engineer students are happy with what they are getting out of the program Our full-time population is too Students seeking employment are finding excellent jobs in competition with people from “top” MBA programs

Conclusion We think we have a very appropriate program for our participants and their respective organizations This type of program is the future – and we are ready to team with you to advance careers and the NM business climate.
Engineers and Applied Scientists We did a survey – –Respondents indicated that a quality program that could be done part-time was needed Responses to the program have ranged from positive to very enthusiastic among employers, current students, and alums Our program has a strong analytical flavor
Economic Development Issues Development of student cohorts that turn into local professional networks Development of entrepreneurial focus and critical business management skill sets within technology workforce Provision of another professional education alternative that will assist in retention of quality employees
