In addition, I have been involved in some experiential learning initiatives.  These are often organized around student-managed teams working on projects for sponsoring companies.  They include:

New Product Design & Business Development (MBA elective course)  This course is jointly offered by the Carlson School & the College of Science & Engineering. It features a mix of MBAs and graduate students in engineering.

Carlson Ventures Enterprise (mostly for MBA students, with some undergraduates)  This is one of four enterprises, a set of experiential courses that represent a signature offering of the Carlson School’s full-time MBA program.

I have also taught other, shorter courses.  These include executive education sessions, workshops, and interactive lectures on strategy, innovation & entrepreneurship, which I have delivered for MBA students, groups of executives from various companies, professionals in nonprofit & public sector organizations, and others.

Carla Pavone and I have written a teaching case that covers the rise and (partial) fall of an Internet startup.  You can find it, and a teaching note, in the following journal:
