The PhD in Technology Management program is presented as a model with four areas of required study. Courses are not identified, but topical areas of study are given, to assist the Graduate Consortium Coordinating Council in defining the parameters of an area of study. Examples of major areas of specialization were developed in greater detail as part of the proposal development process. These, and additional major areas of specialization, will be developed by the consortium universities that will offer the specialization. In all cases, the Graduate Consortium Coordinating Council is the governing body responsible for approval of curriculum.
