Well I think 〜としても is a conjugated form of the sentence structure 〜とする. 〜とする is used after a clause to hypothesize or to assume the action of the clause. 〜としても is the same except since it's in the 〜て form, it's simply listing the sequence of orders. For example,

宿題をしたとして〜    Assume that you did your homework〜
朝ご飯を食べるとする。  Assume that you're going to eat breakfast.
明日に行くとしたら,今切符を買った方がいいです。 If we assume that we're going tomorrow, it's better to buy the ticket now.

Since you have ~mo attached in front of ~te, the sentence changes to Even assuming/hypothesizing.

Anyone correct me if I'm wrong

If it wasn't for the fact that you have said you are self studying it would sound as if you are asking us to do your homework. :P

From WWJDIC;

としても (prt) assuming ...; even if ...; (P)
