NAIT’s Bachelor of Technology in Management (BTech) degree is the only program of its kind in Alberta and one of just a few similar programs in Canada. If you’ve graduated with a 2-year technology diploma, the BTech program offers the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree with only 2 additional years of study.

The BTech degree has been developed to help you bridge the gap between the job you started as a technologist and a career in management. There is a demand for leaders who can address the technological challenges of today’s economy while contributing to socially aware and ethical business decisions. The BTech degree will help you develop the critical skills needed to make a difference in your organization and industry.

We offer three concentrations designed to meet industry demand and give you a competitive edge. Those who apply for September 2024 can choose to focus on:

  • Project Management
  • Operations Management
  • Sustainability Management
