Incoming first year MBA students are selected for the TI:GER® program based on academic excellence, entrepreneurial or innovation-related work experience, and likely interest in technology commercialization as a career alternative.
In TI:GER® we examine the technology commercialization from each of three different perspectives University Technology Transfer, Corporate Innovation and Intrapreneurship, and Venture Creation and Entrepreneurship. For MBAs, the program is designed to build market-ready skills in high-tech product conceptualization, development, and launch; and specifically the ability to work effectively in multi-disciplinary innovation teams regardless of the business setting.
Each MBA in TI:GER® receives a Graduate Research Assistance (GRA) that provides financial support for the two year MBA program. GRA work assignments will be designed to supplement TI:GER® program content and introduce students to various organizations around the Georgia Tech campus that are focused on University Technology Transfer including VentureLab and the Office of Technology and Licensing (OTL).
