Due to market demand and given AUT’s prestigious image amongst the Iranian’s industry professionals and practitioners, a group of university’s experienced academics (under the supervision of Dr Mohammad Hassan Sebt) took a bold step forward to educate and encourage the next generation of executives, entrepreneurs, engineers and managers.
The outcome was the university’s first MBA program defined and launched in 2007. Four years later the university created the Department of Management, Science and Technology (DMST), offering MBA, MSc (Philosophy of Science, Industrial Design and Future Studies), and PhD (Future Studies) degrees. In 2013 the first accredited international MBA (in English) was also launched with the aim to attract international applicants from the region and beyond. Today, DMST takes problem-oriented research approach and high impact engagement with decision makers across government and industrial sectors.
