Graduate Global Enrichment in China

This program offers students an opportunity to explore the dynamics of the Chinese economy through an experiential medical technology valuation exercise. This course is modeled after Carlson School's on-campus Medical Industry Leadership Institute valuation lab which engages an interdisciplinary collaboration of students, faculty, and industry leaders working together. Working under the supervision of experience faculty members and mentors, students assess the value of proprietary inventions in the context of the Chinese market, producing a comprehensive valuation report covering all aspects of the innovation. The analysis assesses intellectual property issues, regulatory challenges, market size and growth trends, effectiveness and need for the technology and financial issues and strategic positioning.

University of Minnesota students will have an opportunity to work in cross-cultural teams with students and engineers from our partner school the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology.

Senior Actuary, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Office of the Actuary

Medicaid, Medicare, and total U.S. healthcare spending have received a lot of attention throughout the drive to healthcare reform. The recently-passed legislation will bring about change, but where do things stand before the reform begins? What are the expected impacts of the recently-passed healthcare reform legislation on Medicaid, Medicare, and total healthcare spending? What role have actuaries played along the way?
