Happenings @ CORI
We are currently developing Continuing Legal Education (CLE) classes on the concept of value-creating contracts. These courses will provide attorneys with a better understanding of the economics of the business deal and how different contract terms work together not only to protect, but to enhance the value of the transaction for their clients. We expect the first course to be offered in Fall 2013.
Starting in Fall 2011, the Division of Applied Social Sciences began offering a Graduate Certificate in the Economics and Sociology of Institutions and Organizations. The certificate can be part of a graduate degree program at the University of Missouri or a stand-alone program for someone who has previously earned or is pursuing a graduate degree elsewhere. CORI is one of the partnering organizations for the new certificate program and its research workshop. We encourage scholars interested in institutional and organizational studies to consider visiting MU to take part in this certificate program.
