Master of Science in Technology Management (MSTM) - Seoul, Korea

Program Overview

The Master of Science in Technology Management (MSTM) is a joint program between Stony Brook University and the Seoul School of Integrated Sciences and Technologies (aSSIST) and takes place primarily in Seoul, Korea. Students complete 36 credits of required courses leading to both aSSIST's MBA and Stony Brook University's MS in Technology Management degree simultaneously.  Students must meet the degree requirements of both schools. 

The program combines foundational business knowledge with technology management for technology specialists.  The program aims to provide practical as well as intellectual tools for engineers and technical specialists who are moving into managerial positions, and who need to complement their technical expertise with general business, organizational and strategic management capabilities.

The program has two components - one includes students taking courses on a part-time basis in Korea. In the second, students travel to the United States to attend a three-week summer study program at Stony Brook University, completing course work and immersing themselves in the culture. The program is taught by both Korean-based faculty and US faculty, some of whom travel to Korea to teach.  All classes in the program are taught in English.

Students are required to maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA throughout their academic program. Students will have to obtain a GPA of 3.0 or better by the end of their degree, otherwise the degree will not be granted.
