Technology management is intended to give bachelor students at the Faculty of Science and Technology a comprehensive introduction to theories and methods of management accounting, including topics of entrepreneurship. An introduction is offered to the economic role of the firm in the community, but the main part of the course is directed at the firm as the financial and administrative unit. The ambition for the course is to train the student in business analysis. Scientific theory is taught as an innovation process with a review of how theories and principles were invented. Ethics are exemplified through current ethical dilemmas.
