Entrepreneurial course taught by Professor Michael
BADM 446, Techno-Entrepreneurship
Research has shown that, in general, cross-disciplinary teams are more effective than individuals in starting businesses. The purpose of this course, therefore, is to encourage technology and business students to commercialize opportunities together. The course blends principles from technology management into the existing entrepreneurship curriculum, to develop a cutting edge, world class course that helps students learn from each other and pair off into successful venture teams. The curriculum will include information on technological trends, entrepreneurial opportunities manifested through the industry lifecycle, the role of disruptive technology, and the nature of technological opportunity recognition. The course will yield projects that commercialize technology as a startup venture, in the form of business plans and technology documents, as students present their findings to successful entrepreneurs for real-world feedback.
