How do you successfully drive innovation in your business school?  Learn from our 2017 MBA Roundtable Innovator Award Winners on their successful innovations and programs, how they accomplished them and tips on driving innovation in your organization.

We begin our series with our 2017 MBA Roundtable Innovator Award Winner from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota and their remarkable Medical Industry Valuation Lab.  The valuation lab is their Medical Industry Leadership Institute’s signature course and represents interdisciplinary, experiential learning at its finest. It brings together students from across the University of Minnesota campus to work in cross-functional teams conducting rapid market assessments for new medical innovations, helping evaluate lifesaving ideas and streamlining the time to market for critical new products.  Since launching in 2008, the Medical Industry Valuation Lab has assessed more than 300 medical innovations for organizations that include Fortune 500 companies, hospitals, medical device manufacturers, startups, and nonprofits, as well as individual inventors.

Join our presenters Steve Parente, Professor, Minnesota Insurance Industry Chair of Health Finance, Carlson School, U of MN and Phil Miller, Assistant Dean for MBA & MS Programs, Carlson School, U of MN to learn more about their Medical Industry Valuation Lab.

The MBA Roundtable Innovator Award was created in 2011 to promote educational initiatives that advance innovation in MBA education and acknowledge the institutions that drive change in the field.  The Innovator Award raises awareness of ongoing continuous curricular and co-curricular improvements and educates employers, business school leaders, and faculty about innovative practices of best-in-class MBA programs. For business schools, the Award publically recognizes their leadership to initiate and achieve curricular reform.
