PhD+ Business in Society 10: Putting It All Together

School of Engineering, Rodman Room A238

This is the tenth and final session of PhD Plus Business in Society: adding value with your PhD skills series.

In this session, we will pull together your learnings from the course and apply them to analyze and discuss the company Uber.  What is the mission and values of a company like Uber?  For whom do they create value and how? How do they think about their competitive position in the marketplace and how does that influence their behavior? And, lastly, what would you advise the company about their future direction and how would you exercise your voice if you worked for Uber?

This is a popular series and requires commitment to full participation. Registrants are expected to complete readings/assignments in between sessions and engage in weekly sessions through instructor-student and peer-to-peer interactions. 

Priority of attendance will be given to those who commit to participating in the majority of the series (including learning time in between sessions) and are in advanced stages of training ( e.g. PhD students in 3+ years). Registration will close by 5 PM (ET) on Jan 27, 2023, or when we reach our maximum registration capacity (whichever is earlier).
