UMD students, community members and Duluth business professionals got to enjoy all the high-stakes excitement and cash (sorta) of Shark Tank without the same cutthroat competition and a cross-country flight.

For the second year in a row, the UMD Shark Tank competition is giving business ideas a forum - ideas from students or the community - and awarding cash prizes.

Students at the Labovitz School of Business and Economics showed more than a little innovation and entrepreneurship themselves organizing the first LSBE Entrepreneurship and Innovation Conference at UMD. The October 1 conference is open to the public.

It's a chance for students to network with and be inspired by the business leaders they hope to become someday.

Two words you never see side by side: "tuition reduction."

And not only is UMD's MBA program offering the degree at a lower price ... they're throwing in some major scholarships to sweeten the deal.

We get details from the Dean of the Labovitz School of Business and Economics, Dr. Amy Hietapelto.
