  • IDH1001

    Ideas of Origins and Origins of Ideas | Honors College | Undergraduate Course | 1 Credit

    The course is designed to encourage students to become self -conscious learners, exploring not only the what, but also the how and why of knowing. The course focuses on the nature of truth and reality and our role in the world each of us has constructed.

  • IDH2003

    Principles of Experiential Innovation I | Honors College | Undergraduate Course | 1 Credit

    This first in a two-semester course sequence focuses on understanding the start-up culture and in -particular, the basic knowledge and processes needed to identify if a technology/product derived from the university classroom and/or lab can be translated to the commercial marketplace.

  • IDH2004

    Principles of Experiential Innovation II | Honors College | Undergraduate Course | 1 Credit

    This second in a two-semester course sequence will focus on in-depth customer discovery in teams. The first few weeks of the semester will emphasize the “art” of securing interview with, mock interviews carried out in class. Next, the key initiating elements of a business model will be re-introduced in the context of the start-up scenario arising from academia. Teams will subsequently have to carry out several interviews (about a 100) starting with their initial value proposition and customer segment hypotheses.
