Technology Management Research Center


A paradigm shift in global society has positioned technology as the main driver for economic growth in industry and government. Yet successful management of today’s fluid, fast-paced innovations poses extraordinary challenges.

The Technology Management Research Center (TMRC) at Rutgers Business School – Newark and New Brunswick (RBS) is dedicated to embracing these issues and promoting effective management of technology.

Its mission incorporates three complementary areas:

  • Applied research on issues essential to sound management of technology and innovation, including new development, implementation, trends and strategy.
  • Dissemination of research findings through applications-oriented publications and conferences.
  • Innovative degree and non-degree programs for industry leaders of today and tomorrow.

Rutgers Business School (RBS), under the guidance of Professor George Farris, created the Technology Management Research Center (TMRC) in 1988. Its foundation centered on generating knowledge and fostering ongoing dialogue among industry, government and the university.

The TMRC supports The State of New Jersey’s commitment to encouraging growth in its high-tech industries. The Center’s activities recognize the need to focus not only on scientific and engineering advances, but also on people, raw materials, financial feasibility and the competitive environment.
