Realizing Value from Intellectual Property

Course Number: 
MGT 672

This course examines the valuation, patenting, and licensing of early-stage technology as a means to exploit innovation. By understanding technology to be a negotiable asset for the firm, we take a fundamentally different approach than venture capital models, which focus on the enterprise, rather than the commercialization of technology itself. Accordingly, we study the economics and theory of intellectual property; valuation of intangible assets; IP agreements and protection regimes; negotiations and trading techniques; and licensing and litigation strategies.
