Make money and earn credit

‘Design. Build. Bank’ focus of spring break class at UNM’s Innovation Academy

Spend your spring break creating ways to make money instead of finding ways to spend it. The UNM Innovation Academy, in partnership with the School of Architecture, Liberal Arts and Integrative Studies, and University College is offering a new class where you can earn three credits in just five days.

“Design. Build. Bank!” is a course where students will use interactive and project-based methods to create a business idea, product, place, application, etc. and learn how to make money doing it! Students don’t even need to have an idea already, they can develop one when they get there.

The course is cross-listed in ARCH (graduate and undergraduate), LAIS, and UNIV (for dual-credit students). Everyone is welcome, and there are no pre-requisites. Classes will be held Monday through Friday, March 11-15. Class will take place at the Lobo Rainforest and will run 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., but don’t worry, it definitely won’t be eight hours of lecture.

Use your spring break to build the next social media app, instead of oversharing on the ones you already have.
