VSB 3500-H01 ART OF VALUE INVESTING

DAVID NAWROCKI
W 6:10-8:50 PM

Value Investing is the intensive study of companies for the purpose of investing in their securities, stocks or bonds.  Many disciplines are useful for this purpose; an incomplete listing would include finance, accounting, marketing, history, engineering, economics, social psychology, and political science.  The course attempts to have students integrate their learning at Villanova for the purpose of valuating a stock.  There is no one correct way to analyze a stock so we allow for different approaches.  The course consists of three parts: (1) reading a book that describes the approaches used by successful investors, (2) a speaker series of professional investment managers speaking to the class each week, and (3) student oral presentations on a stock to an audience with several practitioners each week.  Speakers are high level executives from investment firms and corporations and students will have plenty of opportunity to interact with these executives.  Oral presentations are by multidisciplinary student teams (3-4 students per team).  The course is a nontraditional class meaning no traditional lecture/exam format.  However, it is difficult as each student has to be proactive in their learning.  Contact Dr. Nawrocki for information and previous course outlines.

VSB 3900-H01 INNOVATION & DESIGN PRACTICUM

SCOTT L. NEWBERT
MW 3:00-4:15 PM 

A new course launched last fall, this course explores the art of “design,” a creative approach to problem-solving used by decision-makers at the world’s most innovative organizations (i.e., Google, Apple). This course will expand the students’ understanding of design through various readings and discussion as well as a hands-on project that will enable students to integrate and apply design concepts, methods, and techniques to real-world problems. Though offered out of VSB, due to the diversity of perspectives and skills design projects demand, the course is open to students from all colleges and departments across the university. For VSB students considering getting the VSB Honors degree, this course is part of the required 3-course VSB Honors core.
