New course in ‘ MSc Technology Policy & Management offered’ by The University of Strathclyde


The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow is launching a new course in ‘MSc Technology Policy & Management. The course will run in academic year 2020-21.

Drawing on the collective expertise of Strathclyde’s Business School, Science faculty and Humanities & Social Sciences faculty, TPM is a new, truly multi-disciplinary masters degree.

MSc Technology Policy & Management is the only taught programme in Scotland, and one of only a few globally, that places a focus on policy formulation, analysis and communication in relation to the management of innovation and technology.

We work in a rapidly evolving and changing business environment with a landscape of both emerging and established technologies. Strathclyde’s MSc Technology Policy and Management (TPM) offers you the context and skills needed to formulate, analyse and communicate technology policy to successfully manage technology and innovation in its widest sense.

With innovation as the central thread running throughout your studies, TPM will equip you with a thorough theoretical grounding and practice-based understanding of technology policy and management. Simultaneously, you will develop considerable practical skills in the formation, analysis and communication of technology policy.

University of Strathclyde is embedded in, and an integral part of, Glasgow City Innovation District (GCID). GCID is home to global innovative companies and organisations who’ve located in Glasgow to nurture and accelerate growth, improve productivity, and access world-class research and technology from the University of Strathclyde.

TPM has been uniquely designed to closely align with GCID offering you access to, and engagement with, the wide range of organisations in this rapidly growing business community. This engagement will be realised in your studies via live case studies, projects and guest lectures from our partners – offering you a truly experiential year.
