Broadcom in association with University of California has announced the launch of an inaugural Technology and Entrepreneurship Achievement competition. As part of this new program, the UC Irvine graduate students will learn how to structure and negotiate a business deal involving a new and exciting technology and compete as part of interdisciplinary teams.
Speaking about the program, Arthur Chong, Broadcom Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, said, “This competition will give graduate students from different fields valuable, hands-on experience at solving real business challenges as a team, just as multi-discipline groups do every day in the workplace. Broadcom is honored to partner with UC Irvine to create a unique, collaborative and valuable opportunity for students interested in problem solving at the intersection of technology and entrepreneurship.”
The Technology and Entrepreneurship Achievement competition will bring together UC Irvine students from the School of Law, Paul Merage School of Business, Henry Samueli School of Engineering and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences to develop practical transactional skills, gain exposure to corporate issues and learn best practices from a distinguished panel of Orange County professionals. The teams will be judged and awarded based upon the effectiveness of their business strategy, understanding of the issues, overall professional demeanor and the terms of the final agreement.
The event will take place February 28 at the Paul Merage School of Business followed by an Awards Dinner at the University Club.
