I was having diffulty in opening the website UP-TMC containing the names of succesful applicants to the Master in Technology Management Program. I was able to view the contents of the webpage in pdf format downloaded and forwarded to me by my friend who also applied the said graduate program. After passing the preliminary admission procedures, the next steps are the following:
1. To prepare for coursework, the new students are required to attend a series of Preparatory
Courses/Workshops on: General Management, Marketing, Production and Operations Management, Effective Communications, and Accounting, which will be held on May 4, 11, 18, 25 and June 1 & 8, 2008, respectively. Each workshop session is scheduled from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., and will be held at the TMC in UP Diliman. Therefore, I should go there on Friday or Saturday to register.
2. Physical examination for incoming students : April 24 – May 23, 2008
3. Registration (for freshmen) : June 2
4. Registration (for other students) . June 3-6
5. Orientation for TMC freshmen : June 8 (after the last Workshop)
6. Start of Classes : June 10
They also suggested that new students should go through some readings (available at the TMC library) prior to the start of the classes.
The Master of Technology Management (MTM) program of the UP Technology Management Center applies an interdisciplinary approach that combines business management, engineering, and the social and physical sciences.
Entering graduate school entails a lot of self-discipline, thus, going through this next phase in my continuous quest for knowledge poses a great challenge to me. I will try my very best to balance my religious duties, job, studies, and my duties as a wife and mother.
