Description:

This course counts toward the following majors: Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Health Enterprise Management, International Business (affiliate) , MMM/MEM design track, Managerial Economics, Social Enterprise, Technology Industry Management and Biotechnology.

This course covers the broad agenda of using intellectual capital for competitive advantage. With globalization, intangible assets such as human capital, intellectual property, brands and relationships have become the dominant proportion of a firm's market capitalization. Yet most firms do a poor job of managing this intellectual capital strategically. This course adopts a "lifecycle" approach to the management of an intellectual asset, covering the creation of the intellectual asset, the codification of the asset in the form of intellectual property (IP), the valuation of intellectual assets, the protection of intellectual assets and leveraging of intellectual assets into future markets for growth. Case studies examine related management challenges in entertainment, finance, pharmaceuticals, health care, consumer electronics, agribusiness, biotechnology, consulting, venture capital, telecommunications, software and other contexts. Additionally, the social implications of intellectual property policy are discussed.
