I am very proud to say I started at Anderson. People will ask me how I learned all of what I know about entrepreneurship, innovation, start-ups, spin-outs and technology transfer. I say I was on the ground floor when Anderson launched this field of education - and it provided me with a profession for the next 30 years. I learned team building and collaboration. Our faculty encouraged it by assigning projects in teams. There was a sense of comfort and learning with each other that quite honestly I have not experienced at other universities I later attended. When I return to campus, I am amazed at the consistent quality of students Anderson is producing.

The field of Management of Technology (MOT) develops professionals who allow large and small firms in the public and private sectors to excel in a technology-based economy.

Engaging in New Mexico economic development activities and generating world-class research in technology commercialization, the Anderson MOT program was recently ranked number 6 in the US among technology management programs and in the top 50 worldwide by the International Association of Management of Technology (IAMOT).
