Uploaded a Course Syllabus
Combining some elements from three 1.5-credit courses offered in the Master of Business Administration program -- MBAD 6265 Entrepreneurship, MBAD 6285 Business Law, and MBAD 6297 Business and Innovation -- EMSE 6025 Entrepreneurship and Technology is a single, 3-credit course, required in the Doctor of Engineering program in Engineering Management, that geared to the practical application of engineering management principles to the process of bringing a technological product to market through creation of an entrepreneurial business venture. The course's emphasis on entrepreneurship for both innovation or invention of a technological product, and its marketing, differentiates it from the MBA courses.
