Course Information


Fall 2013 Classes Start August 19th

Students can now earn academic credit while preparing for the UNM Business Plan Competition with the introduction of MGT 594/490 starting this fall semester, 2013.   This “business plan practicum”, a Special Topics in Management offering entitled “Lean Startup and Business Model Generation”, will be available on Friday mornings from 9AM to noon in Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. Taught by Dr. Sul Kassicieh, Distinguished Professor and Anderson’s Endowed Chair in Economic Development, this class will take students to the forefront of startup planning and earn them 3 hours of academic credit as they get ready for the competition. The goal, within the constraints of a classroom and a limited amount of time, is to create an entrepreneurial experience with all of the pressures and demands of the real world in an early stage start up. Students will be getting their hands dirty talking to customers, partners, competitors, as they encounter the chaos and uncertainty of how a startup actually works.  They’ll work in teams, learning how to turn a great idea into a great company. Building on the game-changing work of Steve Blank and Bob Dorf, students have the opportunity to see the future of business startup planning. Registration and information: contact Sul Kassicieh sul@unm.edu or 277-8881.
