MS&E 350: Doctoral Seminar in Risk Analysis

Limited to doctoral students. Literature in the fields of engineering risk assessment and management. New methods and topics, emphasizing probabilistic methods and decision analysis. Applications to risk management problems involving the technical, economic, and organizational aspects of engineering system safety. Possible topics: treatment of uncertainties, learning from near misses, and use of expert opinions.

MS&E 372: Entrepreneurship Doctoral Research Seminar

Classic and current research on entrepreneurship. Limited enrollment, restricted to PhD students. Prerequisites: SOC 363 or equivalent, and permission of instructor.
Terms: Spr, alternate years, not given next year | Units: 1-3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Eesley, C. (PI)

MS&E 374: Cross Border Regional Innovation

This is an advanced research seminar class that is restricted to students that had taken MS&E 274. Disruptive innovation is the realization of new value proposition through establishment of a new ecosystem. Value proposition depends on the culture and social value in a particular region; while the ability to establish the ecosystem to realize the value proposition is highly dependent on the firm¿s knowledge and skills to operate effectively under the political, social, and economic structure of that particular region. Therefore cross border and regional innovations in different regions will take different path. This course will examine cases that cover innovations in developing economy, cross border e-commerce, and international business groups.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Tse, E. (PI)

MS&E 375: Research on Entrepreneurship

Restricted to Ph.D. students. Organization theory, economics, and strategy perspectives. Limited enrollment. Prerequisites: SOC 360 or equivalent, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, alternate years, not given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
