ACCT 332: Mergers and Acquisitions

This course provides a comprehensive overview of strategic, economic and financial issues related to mergers and acquisitions. Specifically, we review the market for corporate control, discuss strategic issues related to firms' decision to acquire or be acquired, and examine the M&A regulatory environment. We analyze various valuation and deal structure considerations, identify strategies that underlay a successful negotiation, and review the financial reporting and income tax implications of M&A transactions.In covering these and other related issues, we will discuss both the theory and practice of mergers and acquisitions. To provide some specific context we will analyze many large and small M&A deals. In discussing these cases, we will examine the situation faced by the company, the issues surrounding the transaction, including the financial implications, and focus on the managerial incentives and the judgment applied.

BIOS 216: The Practice of Reproducible Research

This course will cover the basic principles and practices underlying rigorous and reproducible biomedical research, both in the clinic and the lab. Approximately 40% of the course will cover the basic scientific and statistical principles, with an emphasis on elements of design and analysis that pose threats to reproducibility; e.g. multiplicity, selective reporting, design effects, non-random assignment, pseudo-replication and handling of outliers. The remainder of the course will focus on computational approaches to ensure that all data, code, and analyses can be captured in a reproducible workflow, to be confirmed and replicated by you in the future, by other members of your team, and by reviewers and other researchers. We will cover how to satisfy FAIR principles, version control, how to create a git repository, utilize Github and how to create a reproducible dataset. Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of R. Recommended (not required): EPI 202 or 261/262, STATS 60, or MS&E 125
Terms: Win | Units: 1
Instructors: Goodman, S. (PI)

CEE 366A: Addressing deep uncertainty in systems models for sustainability

Policymakers rely on quantitative systems models to inform decision-making about environmental policy design, infrastructure development, and resource allocation. However, many rapid, transformational changes in the climate and socioeconomic systems are difficult to predict and quantify in models. Therefore, reliance on traditional model-based decision analysis can leave policymakers vulnerable to unforeseen risks. In this class, students will learn quantitative methods for addressing ¿deep¿ uncertainties using systems modeling, enabling them to identify potential vulnerabilities and design decision policies that are robust and resilient to a wide range of uncertain futures. Drawing on tools in simulation, optimization, and machine learning, specific methods include: exploratory modeling, scenario discovery, robust decision making, and adaptation pathways. We will demonstrate these approaches in a range of sustainability domains such as water resources, agriculture, and energy systems. Students will complete Python-based modeling assignments, read contemporary journal articles, and develop a research proposal. Prerequisites: Prior coursework in applied optimization (e.g. CEE 266G or MS&E 211); and prior coursework in decision or policy analysis (e.g. CEE 275D or MS&E 250A or MS&E 252); and proficiency in Python programming at the level of CME 193

CHEM 124: Organic Chemistry Laboratory

This is a laboratory course that serves as a stepping stone toward independent research in organic chemistry. Through several 1-2 step syntheses, this course trains students on basic organic laboratory techniques on purification of products, including extraction, distillation, recrystallization, thin layer chromatography, and column chromatography, as well as characterization of product structures using IR, GC-MS, and NMR spectroscopy. This course reviews MS, IR, and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy knowledge from Chem 33 and 121 with an emphasis on the practical interpretation of spectra, so that students can become independent in using these techniques to identify the purity and structures of organic compounds.nPrerequisite: Chem 121. Corequisite: Chem 123.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

CHEM 131: Instrumental Analysis Principles and Practice

The core objectives of the course will focus upon introducing and providing hands-on practice with analytical separation, spectroscopic identification, and calibrated quantification with strong technical communication (for the Writing-in-the-Major requirement) emphasized throughout the course. Lectures will focus on theory, and laboratory activities will provide hands-on practice with the GC, LC, XPS, ICP, MS, and UV/Vis instruments. Data analysis will be emphasized throughout the course with Python being the primary tool for plotting and computations. Statistical measurements will be introduced to gauge the quality and validity of data. Lectures will be three times a week with a required four-hour laboratory section. The course will conclude with a student-developed project, focusing upon separation and quantification, and a poster presentation. The course should be completed prior to CHEM courses 174,176, or 184. Prerequisite: CHEM 33 or CHEM 100; and CS 106A.
