Global Technology and Management Consortium
Global Technology and Management Consortium (GTMC) is an entity formed in 2001 by selected business schools around the world
committed to the highest level of education and research, emphasizing technology, its uses and development as the basis of their
educational and differentiation strategies. The benefits of the GTMC to faculty, students, affiliated companies and related
populations are: complementarities in research efforts and expertise; opportunities to compete with and learn from other students
and faculty through projects such as the supply chain game and global case competitions; greater opportunities and input in Ph.D.
seminars; a "finger on the pulse" of the technology management needs in participating companies; and the corresponding supply and
network of great talent, within and across universities and companies. Above all, the GTMC stimulates the development and use of
technology and benchmarking with colleagues of the highest quality.
The interrelationship between Technology and Management can be investigated from different points of view using different
methodologies ranging from formal model-based research to social-sciences-based approaches. Within GTMC, the aim is to cover as
many themes related to Technology and Management as possible addressing both services as well as production related areas.
Therefore, doctoral students from practically all academic disciplines are eligible to participate in GTMC symposia.
The 5th GTMC Doctoral Symposium was held at CERAM, France, on June 4-5, 2007, where two Smith students presented their research.
The symposium was co-sponsored by the Smith School, CERAM (France), Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands), University of
Groningen (the Netherlands), and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST, Korea).
The Smith School participates in the Consortium through the
Office of Global Programs, and will continue to support the
participation of two to three doctoral students in the GTMC symposia in future years. Interested doctoral students may contact
Ms. Lisa Barnard, Associate Director,
Office of Global Programs for more information.
