Two Entreprenuership courses available to non business students

Emily Cox Pahnke is teaching two sections of ENTRE 370, Intro to Entrepreneurship and a special topics class, ENTRE 490, Grand Challenges for Entrepreneurs in Fall, and is looking for some assistance in getting the word out to interested students! J

ENTRE 370 is a great intro class, and like most other business classes is not open to non-business students until the first day of class. However both sections have about 20 spots left- so interested students should attend class on the first day and register themselves that day. If they do not meet the pre-requisites but are interested in taking the class, they can email Emily at eacox to request to be allowed in the section. She will then keep a list of approved students and get it over to me on the first day of classes, where students will be added based on space availability and on a first come first serve basis. Unlike most business courses, this is one class where the professor is allowing some flexibility in the pre-reqs (though this may not always be the case.)

ENTRE 490 -Grand Challenges for Entrepreneurs is open to all non-business students NOW who are sophomores and above- and will explore big problems and opportunities facing society, ranging from healthcare, education, and big data to poverty. The course examines how solutions to these massive challenges can be researched, validated, and implemented using such entrepreneurial skills as creativity, opportunity recognition, business models, pivoting, and execution. Entrepreneurship is both an individual and team activity. Therefore this course incorporates both individual and group efforts. Students form project teams early in the quarter and meet regularly to prepare for class discussion.

So if you have any students interested in creating their own businesses, or have the entrepreneurial spirit, please have them check these classes out. Also, Entre 370 counts for the ENTRE minor and may be a great way to help students figure out if they are interested in pursuing that. I am the Entre minor adviser so students can be referred to me for questions on the minor.

Please feel free to display or disperse the attached flyers and let me know if you have any questions!

Best,

Global Health Economics – Starts Today! Space available!

Space available! Starts Today, June 23!

Global Health Economics (G H 590 B) - 3 credits

June 23 – July 11, MTW 2-4:50 pm, Th 2-3:20

SLN: 11595

Instructors:

Stephane Verguet, Asst Professor, Global Health; Senior Health Economist, Disease Control Priorities Network

Joseph Babigumira, Asst Professor, Global Health

This course introduces students to key topics in health economics, particularly as they relate to low- and middle-income countries.

The course covers three main areas:

· Economic evaluation of health interventions, policies and platforms; cost-effectiveness analysis

· Health, poverty, and development

· Performance, efficiency and finance

The course emphasizes cost-effectiveness analysis and include a wide range of methods, so that non-health economist students become self-sufficient in the use and interpretation of cost-effectiveness assessment tools.

We recommend that students enrolled in this course have an understanding of basic microeconomics principles (i.e. consumer demand, production, resource allocation, government intervention), as well as interest in understanding of the social, political, and economic determinants of health in low- and middle-income countries.

Undergrads welcome with instructor approval.

Questions? Please contact Stephane Verguet (verguet)
