MOB3527 SOLVING BIG PROBLEMS
4 CREDITS (GENERAL CREDIT)
This elective course is about how big problems in business, society, and the environment may be solved. Big problems are those that, if solved even partly, will transform industries, change the way we live, and greatly better people's lives. Examples include viable alternate energy, affordable transportation not based on fossil fuel, addressing global warming and environmental damage, developing treatments for diseases neglected for economic reasons, alleviating food and water shortages, responding to disasters, bringing products and services to ignored markets, and many others. Solving these complex problems requires creativity and innovation, strategic and entrepreneurial thinking, and management and organizational practices. The aim of the course is to discover how big problems may be solved.
