In the Fall we will again be offering a classroom version of TIMG 5104 (Directed Studies). Students can take this course to meet their restricted and non-restricted elective requirements.
The topic of the Fall course will be Open Source Business. This course is designed to build capability and knowledge in the management of open source businesses. An open source business is a business built around an open source offer. Studies of open source have often focused exclusively on open source development.
This course will take the broader perspective of how businesses can be built on open source. Students will learn about leveraging open source in products, managing open source communities, and open source business models; gain familiarity with the practitioner and research literature; and become proficient with practical managerial skills, which can add value in their engineering organizations.
If you have questions about the course please contact the instructor: Michael Weiss.
