UMD's Chris McIntosh is passionate about economics.

And the associate professor at the Labovitz School of Business and Economics starts to pique a person's interest when he starts talking about it.

Gender economics? Behavioural economics? Health care economics?  What's that all about?

The 2018 Richard Paul Teske Sieur du Lhut Creativity Conference is happening Monday, Oct. 15, and the public is invited to attend.  With two talented creative professionals speaking on the role of creativity across cultures and disciplines, the conference serves as an annual resource for students, faculty, artists and the greater community to better connect their creativity with the work they do.

For the third year UMD students, educators and entrepeneurs will come together for the 2017 UMD Entrepreneurship Conference. People who attend will hear from successful local, regional, and national entrepreneurs about the impact they have had in their respective fields as well as attend workshops and network. Paid attendees will be provided lunch and all attendees will recieve snacks and refreshments.

UMD students, community members and Duluth business professionals got to enjoy all the high-stakes excitement and cash (sorta) of Shark Tank without the same cutthroat competition and a cross-country flight.

For the second year in a row, the UMD Shark Tank competition is giving business ideas a forum - ideas from students or the community - and awarding cash prizes.

Students at the Labovitz School of Business and Economics showed more than a little innovation and entrepreneurship themselves organizing the first LSBE Entrepreneurship and Innovation Conference at UMD. The October 1 conference is open to the public.

It's a chance for students to network with and be inspired by the business leaders they hope to become someday.

Two words you never see side by side: "tuition reduction."

And not only is UMD's MBA program offering the degree at a lower price ... they're throwing in some major scholarships to sweeten the deal.

We get details from the Dean of the Labovitz School of Business and Economics, Dr. Amy Hietapelto.
