    Hello all,

    I am new to the forum and I have found a lot of the conversations here very interesting. Maybe someone here would be able to help me out.

    I have been seeking for an affordable distance learning doctoral program in technology management. My preference is in a doctoral program (vs a PhD) due to its strong emphasis in applicability vs theory (phd). It has to be a part-time program, since I would like to complete it while working full-time.

    The program content must closely match with the following definition:

    "The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering defines technology management as the field concerned with the supervision of personnel across the technical spectrum and a wide variety of complex technological systems. Technology management programs typically include instruction in production and operations management, project management, computer applications, quality control, safety and health issues, statistics, and general management principles." Wikipedia,

    Courses in technology forecasting, strategy, roadmaps, entrepreneurships should be included in this program.

    So far, I have come across the following programs:

    PHD in Technology Management, Indiana State University (
    Sadly, this program does not meet the above criteria, thus is not a technology management program.

    George WashigtonUniversity offers a program in Engineering Management that comes close to the the above criteria (, however, it is very expensive.

    Capella and the Colorado Technical University have programs in this area, however I prefer to stay way from these type of institutions.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    A search for "dba technology management" revealed some programs.

    Any particular institution that you came across that meets the criteria?

    I wasn't willing to research that.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    Is "George Madison University" degree mill school? I have never heard of George Madison University. Anyway, there is no such as program you are looking for at a Doctorate level. The majority Doctorate is for research not doing managing technical works. The program you are looking that close to the definition of Wikipedia is Master levels and maybe professional doctorate on campus. Since you said the program at Capella and CTU are expensive, the bad news is that all the program are expensive.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I made a mistake, is not "George Madison University" but "The George Washington University".
    Yes, all programs are expensive, some more than others. This is why one has to evaluate them and decide if the cost outweighs the benefits. however, Capella and CTU are not institutions that I want to get a degree from. Just a personal preference.
    I am seeking a doctoral or a professional doctoral program not a PhD, which is"research oriented".

    Thank you for your for taking the time to look into this.
