Master of Business and Technology Careers

The job market for those interested in future-focused leadership roles that use emerging technologies to drive business models and fend off disruption — especially for those who graduate from Purdue University’s industry-leading, one-year Master of Business and Technology (MBT) program — has a bright outlook with a projected 6-10% job growth through 2032.

Our market research indicates that in 2023 nearly 31,000 employers competed to fill over 400,000 positions requiring versatile candidates who possess core business skills with STEM training and experience. While many programs focus solely on business or technology, there's a distinct gap in the market for graduate programs that cohesively integrate both. The MBT offers a fusion of traditional business acumen and training that encourages and equips graduates to innovate, potentially pioneering technology-driven business models and ventures.

Dean Jim Bullard says the MBT program prepares students to be leaders of a business' technology group — not just members of the organization's tech group. Hear the dean and MBT Academic Director Mohammad Rahman discuss the career possibilities for MBT graduates.
