Medical Valuation Laboratory Give

Over the past 10+ years, the Lab has built a unique experience for students and has been a valuable service to innovators. The Lab is consistently praised by students and, for some, is the reason they chose the Carlson School of Management for their MBA. The Lab needs financial support to expand this already unique experience and increase its global impact.

Financial support will allow us to create stable programs and offerings that will offer timeless benefits to the Lab community. Support will allow for students to expand their knowledge of international innovation, provide for professional staffing of programs, and support increased industry engagement.
