Entrepreneurship

Innovation in an Entrepreneurial Environment

Prereqs: None

The way we live and work is shaped by numerous innovations reaching back over the centuries. Today, innovation is seen as a “science” that impacts economic growth and societal wellbeing – and it has become important to the fields of economics, business, technology, engineering and sociology. At the same time, entrepreneurship has become the backbone of innovative business growth.

How does a particular country create a business environment that encourages entrepreneurial and innovative start-up companies toward success? Focusing first on Italy, students learn to research and analyze a country’s policies that are essential to entrepreneurs in their development of innovative products, processes and services. Students are then able to assess the business environment that nurtures innovative and entrepreneurial firms in other countries and contexts.

The course covers a wide range of entrepreneurial companies and innovations through case studies, examples and student research. These include innovation in healthcare, biomedical research and drug development; innovation in food and agriculture; inclusive and green growth; and innovation in energy, education and information technology. The course is interdisciplinary, there are no prerequisites, and it is well-suited to students majoring in all fields of business, engineering and social sciences.

Corporate Investment & Financing Decisions (3 s.h.)

Prereqs: MBA:8180 (6N:225) Managerial Finance

This course examines the underpinnings and optimization of corporations investment decisions and how these investments are financed. The class covers a variety of topics. On the corporate investment side, we build on capital budgeting knowledge from 6N:225 to cover advanced perspectives of corporate investment behavior. We study optimal roll-out policies and the effects of time-varying uncertainty about (especially startup) projects. Real options that are built into most investment opportunities are also considered from multiple perspectives, and we estimate their value. On the financing side, our focus is on a deeper understanding of the risk-return tradeoff and both both a firm-wide and a project-specific cost of capital. These are critically influenced by firm capital structures, which we highlight. We combine our understanding of investment and financing behavior to study whole firm valuation and we price a couple of mergers. Classtime is devoted nearly entirely to experiential (or) learning-by-doing with hands-on real data analysis. Pre-recorded lectures are assigned as homework.

Management and Organizations

Innovation in an Entrepreneurial Environment

Prereqs: None

The way we live and work is shaped by numerous innovations reaching back over the centuries. Today, innovation is seen as a “science” that impacts economic growth and societal wellbeing – and it has become important to the fields of economics, business, technology, engineering and sociology. At the same time, entrepreneurship has become the backbone of innovative business growth.

How does a particular country create a business environment that encourages entrepreneurial and innovative start-up companies toward success? Focusing first on Italy, students learn to research and analyze a country’s policies that are essential to entrepreneurs in their development of innovative products, processes and services. Students are then able to assess the business environment that nurtures innovative and entrepreneurial firms in other countries and contexts.

The course covers a wide range of entrepreneurial companies and innovations through case studies, examples and student research. These include innovation in healthcare, biomedical research and drug development; innovation in food and agriculture; inclusive and green growth; and innovation in energy, education and information technology. The course is interdisciplinary, there are no prerequisites, and it is well-suited to students majoring in all fields of business, engineering and social sciences.
