The Mission of the Center includes two major areas:
- Integration of the concepts and principles of technology management into strategies for the economic development of nations, regions and firms.
- Extension of the discipline of technology management to incorporate research and education that promotes economic growth in developing nations.
Outcomes from the work of the Center will expand discourse in the fields of International Relations and Development by including considerations of Technology Management and expand the scope of Global Technology Management through greater inclusion of international perspectives.

Technology management refers to a discipline in which research and education is aimed at understanding how to most effectively integrate and manage technology in order to bring the greatest gains to organizations and society. Howe School technology management programs include Telecommunications Management, Information Systems Management, and Global Innovations Management. By technology itself we mean artifacts and systems, as well as modes of analysis common in engineering fields such as systems thinking, prototyping and modeling.
