‘Legal Aspects of Management’

A course I am taking with Prof. Patrick Spott, which was added to the Management curriculum recently, has been a paced learning journey. A few topics the course covers include – ‘courts and jurisdiction’, ‘criminal law’, ‘intellectual property and cyber piracy’, ‘genuineness of assent and statute frauds’, ‘ bankruptcy and reorganization’, ‘agency’. The course is structured with five non-cumulative exams worth 35 points. Here’s what struck me about the course, the mandate ‘Business Owner interview’ and the ‘Courtroom project’.

Summer Jobs already?!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Today in the Student Union there were 5 or 6 tables set up for students to explore jobs for the upcoming summer of 2019. I, myself questioned that it was not yet 2019 but went to look at the tables regardless. As an elementary education major, I try to get as much exposure to kids that I can put on my resumé in the future.

Tuesday’s ethics class at its best

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

I am currently taking a Management Ethics course with the brilliant, Prof. Melissa Goodson. The course is based around identifying and understanding personal values to be able to align them with one’s future professional values. The subject attracts and intrigues me at the same time. However, Prof. Goodson somehow finds ways to make these projects interesting for us.

Drive up the North Shore

palisade head
This weekend, during our mid-semester break, I travelled up the north shore for the first time and made a stop at Palisade Head near Beaver Bay, Minnesota. The drive was just over an hour from Duluth. Along the way were a lot of small towns that had a very “up north” feeling to them. Almost all of them had their own little gift shops, bakeries, and candy shops, along with restaurants and cabins available to rent out. The drive alongside Lake Superior was very beautiful and scenic. You really get a good glimpse of just how big Lake Superior is when you are driving beside it for hours. We drove past Split Rock Lighthouse, which I have always seen pictures of but have never seen in person, and then shortly after that, we stopped at Palisade Head and went for a little hike to the edge of the cliffs where we could get a good view of the water. It was a very enjoyable trip and since Duluth is just a short drive away, it makes this drive a great option for spending a Saturday or Sunday when you are in need of a break from school or work. I will definitely be making this trip again soon and I highly recommend others to look into it, as well.
