Abstract: This paper examines the role of the Chief Technology Officer and the competencies needed to perform the role effectively. While many of these competencies can be developed through in-house training and structured career development, a postgraduate qualification can provide Chief Technology Officers with the theoretical knowledge and skills needed to operate at the senior level. The paper describes a Programme offered at a UK institution that equips aspiring Chief Technology Officers with the skills they need to operate as business and technology strategists.

Keywords: CTO, Chief Technology Officer, new technologies, competitive advantage
