Accelerate your tech start-up and learn how to manage a technology-based company at Canada’s most entrepreneurial university. UNB’s Master of Technology Management and Entrepreneurship (MTME) program combines technological thinking with practical business skills to promote an entrepreneurial mindset in students with science, computer science and engineering backgrounds. Students enjoy the project-based structure of the program which is highly focused on experiential learning.

Our small, collaborative classes are held in the J. Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management and Entrepreneurship, a centre with over 35 years in the ever-changing world of technology. Students discover the market potential of their ideas and learn how to commercialize research with access to a machine shop, welding facilities and 3D printers. Our graduates have gone on to start successful companies of their own making. Others choose to work in Fortune 500 companies, government and not-for-profits.
