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 or 277-8881.

MGMT 594-ST - Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (taught by M. Beckett - IP attorney at Sandia National Laboratories) - Nearly every company, if not all, is dependent on intellectual property in one form or another. This course is intended to familiarize and educate the business student in areas of intellectual property law and technology transfer relevant to large and small businesses, non-profits and research institutions. Topics to be covered include a general overview of laws governing patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets along with strategies for assessing, procuring and protecting a company’s IP.

Professor Jurkat is offering MGMT 551 to MIS students for up to 3 credits this coming fall. The main topic is the exploration of the Integration Services module of SQL Server in order to prepare material for a potential data mining course. SQL Server has three “high” level modules called Integration Services, Analysis Services, and Reporting Services. The Analysis Services procedures provide basic and advanced data mining capability once the data for them is in an acceptable form. One of the standard forms is as objects in data warehouses and data marts. The theory and practices of data mining analysis are the main subjects of MGMT 635 Decision Support and Business Intelligence. If interested contact Professor Jurkat (, 505-603-9412). This course is eligible for MBA-MIS concentration credit – see the MIS advisor (Professor Flor) for details.
