About the Master of Technology Transfer (MTT) Program
In October 2021, Shanghai Jiao Tong University was approved to offer the nation's first "Master of Technology Transfer" degree, with the program conducted by the China BOC School of Technology and Finance in collaboration with the Antai College of Economics and Management. The MTT program's mission is to "cultivate global leaders in science and innovation for the future industrial development," redefining "technology transfer" with a focus on technology strategy planning and innovation financing. It primarily serves key national development industries such as integrated circuits, biomedicine, artificial intelligence, electronic information, life and health, automotive, high-end equipment, and advanced materials, addressing the talent shortage in these fields.
Combining the strengths of Shanghai Jiao Tong University's disciplines and gathering top resources from the industry, the MTT program aims to develop leaders who have a systemic grasp of technology transfer theories and knowledge of science and innovation enterprise financing. It nurtures talents capable of technology strategic planning, commercialization of cutting-edge technologies, integration of science and finance, and specific industry research analysis. The program provides robust support for the construction of a "powerful country in science and technology."
