NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT EDUCATION

The teaching of technology management has a long history in business schools. However, the nature of such education and its focus has changed in recent years. For example, the emphasis on entrepreneurship, venture capital, and emerging technologies has reinvigorated the discipline and brought new issues and new educators to the forefront. The rise of a knowledge-based economy has also focused greater attention on innovation and the commercialization of intellectual property. New institutions (e.g., incubators and science parks) and new organizational forms (e.g., research-based joint ventures, and technology alliances) have emerged that may have profound effects on technology management education. Non-profit institutions, most notably, universities and federal laboratories, have become much more aggressive in protecting and exploiting their intellectual property. They are also working much more closely with industry and government.
What are the implications of recent advances in entrepreneurship education (e.g., the 2004 AMLE's Special Issue on Entrepreneurship Education) for research on technology management education?
