Entrepreneurship: Becoming a Game-Changer

This hands-on course taught by Y.Anthony Kim from the Isenberg School of Management will guide students to see that entrepreneurship is everywhere and for everyone. Students will be given frameworks to think about creating something new that solves a problem in the world, such as a product, a business, a nonprofit, or any new kind of organization.Working in teams, students will then be given access to resources to begin implementing their ideas. We will cover all stages of the entrepreneurial process, from gathering intel in the “real world” to pitching ideas and working with mentors to finding sources of funding. A visit to the UMass 3D printing lab and field trips to local incubators and accelerators such as Valley Venture Mentorsand TechSpring in Springfield, MA are included.

Summer is around the corner and we want to help you make the most of it! Apply now for this program(www.umass.edu/summer/apply). See you soon! ☀️ #SummerPrograms #SummerPrograms2019 #UMass #UMassAmherst #IsenbergSchoolOfManagement

Nitya Thakkar, a student last summer, worked with Dr.Yeonhwa Park in the Food Science Lab as part of the Research Intensive Summer Program. The research she conducted at UMass aided her to qualify for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). ISEF is a program of Society for Science & the Public (the Society), is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition!
.
The goal of the Research Intensives program is to give high school students the opportunity to experience cutting-edge research at UMass Amherst and to see students such as Nitya gain that experience and achieve recognition for the work she did makes us proud. Congratulations Nitya for the well-deserved win and good luck for your future endeavors.

Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues, and celebrated every year on April 22.Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. This earth day, why don’t we start with asking ourselves this: “The earth is changing, why shouldn’t we?”

Margaret Mead, an American cultural anthropologist, said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” This summer, join Jennifer Merton, Senior Lecturer in the Isenberg School of Management, to do just that in the ‘A Sustainable Planet: Legal and Ethical Issues’ program. In this program, we encourage students to explore some of the major environmental challenges that exist for society today, including climate change, water issues, waste, and pollution, and examine the legal and ethical issues that surround the search for solutions. Corporate sustainability and the role that business plays in both harming and preserving the environment will be a focus for discussion. This program will also give participants the opportunity to take a look at sustainability initiatives here at UMass and beyond.

Meet MassDEP officials and discuss legal developments with local environmental attorneys. Use the resources of the UMass-Amherst library to research an environmental issue. Join us for an engaging introduction to environmental law and policy!
