Course Details

IP Valuation

MSL students stand at the intersection of law, business and technology, and are situated to play an active and leading role in advancing innovation, and commercializing ideas and technology. IP Valuation is the hands-on course that provides the theory, methods, and tools for estimating the value of IP, regardless of the technology, industry or business situation. Through a combination of in-class discussion, individual and group exercises, and a capstone small group project, students will learn to use the valuation method(s) that are best for valuing IP in a variety of real-world contexts, including licensing, M&A, JVs and other collaborations, IP purchase / sale, investing, financing, and litigation. Students will learn to conduct due diligence using knowledge from other MSL courses and their own STEM backgrounds to identify situation-specific IP value-drivers and make better business decisions.
