AEM 4650 - Strategic Management of Technology and Innovation


     
Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

W. Sine.

This is a foundational strategy course for students who will work for firms where innovation and technology is important to the competitive advantage of the firm. This includes tech firms like Google, Facebook, and Amazon as well as traditional technology firms like GE, IBM, and Corning. Innovation is also increasingly important to financial firms such as Capital One, Citibank and Jane Street (a quantitative trading firm). This year we will have guest speakers from Jane Street, Capital One labs and Apple. This course is important for students interested in consulting because innovation is a common topic that consultants have to address. It is also relevant to students with interests in entrepreneurship and corporate venturing.

Outcome 1: Students will work in a team to solve business and economic problems.

Outcome 2: Students will demonstrate working knowledge of innovation techniques and ability to apply these to real world settings.

Outcome 3: Students will identify unmet customer needs and work on teams to construct creative and innovation solutions to resolve these needs.

Outcome 4: Students will attain analytical and functional competency in basic business.

Outcome 5: Students will evaluate organizational innovation competencies and deficiencies and recommend a plan to address organizational deficiencies.
