MGT121B - Innovation to Market B

Course Description

This class fulfills a requirement for the Business Minor and the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Minor.

Prerequisites: MGT121A and either MGT181 (for Business Minor students) or MGT187 (for E&I Minor students).

This is a second of a two course series where students grapple with the concerns of intellectual property protection, the financing needs of their projects, investment sources, operational planning, financial forecasting, key employee recruitment, business valuation and harvesting possibilities.

They will learn what goes into a professional business plan that they will be required to produce. Lectures, readings and case studies will be augmented with guest speakers and team based decision making. As part of the final, student teams will present their business ideas to a panel of experts.
