Most people who work in the tech industry will start and perhaps spend their careers in established companies. The companies—we call "BigCos"—have complex org structures, unique market dynamics, and different ways of getting things done. In this class, students will learn how to successfully navigate the opportunities and challenges of a BigCo and build products in a complex environment at scale from practitioners with extensive experience and prominent guest speakers. Students will also learn about how business development, M&A, and other corporate activities complement and sometimes compete with larger strategic initiatives. Students will work in teams matched with a real-world opportunity and advisor from a BigCo. Teams will build and pitch a product in three sprints culminating in a final presentation and demo.

When Offered Spring.
