Schumptoberfest Sign Up Continues

I have logged several folks for the Schumptoberfest weekend weekend, October 22 to 24, at Björklunden.  If you are interested and would like IS credit, please sign up with me by Friday.  I have some IS forms tacked on the board outside my office.  it is best that you sign up by Friday.

Again, the requirements are:

  • Complete the assigned readings.
  • Travel to Björklunden over reading period (Friday evening until Sunday afternoon) and participate in our workshop.
  • Write a short response paper (3-5 pages) to the ideas and discussions from the weekend.

We would like to engage students who have a good understanding of micro theory and are interested in innovation and entrepreneurship. The readings dovetail nicely with my Economics 400 (IO) and 450 (theory of the firm) courses.

I am in the process of completing the reading list and will provide both PDFs and reading guides for the materials within the next week.
