Message from the Director, October 2009

The last several months have been particularly busy ones for EMTM. On May 22, we held the second of four celebrations in commemoration of the program’s 20th Anniversary. The theme for our Anniversary Series is “Future Space: The Intersection between Technology and Social Science.” The turnout was great, the speakers superb and the camaraderie fabulous. Several articles in this issue of InSITE capture the spirit of the day.

We also completed the 2008-2009 recruiting cycle. Despite the economic challenges, we enrolled an excellent class of 52, which first arrived on campus for Orientation from August 19-22. Some background on the incoming class is included in this issue of InSITE.

This year, we are introducing an additional set of technology electives in the area of Energy and the Environment. More information will be forthcoming in the Winter issue of InSITE. We hosted our third 20th Anniversary event on October 2 featuring Micheael Kearns and Kaihan Krippendorff.

We at EMTM take pride in the accomplishments made during the first 20 years of the program and look forward to continuing to offer our students the tools to align business strategy with smart technology and management decisions... in a high-speed, high-cost, high-risk business environment.

Best wishes,
