Leadership and Managing Multicultural Teams

We live in a world with a globalized workforce where many organizations have teams that span different offices, time zones and continents. Running a team these days is a different endeavour than it was in the past due to the emergence of cross cultural teams. This course explores the soft skills required to lead effectively. The topics cover insights into organizational leadership to the tools for managing specific types of enterprises. The focus is on understanding, criticizing, and challenging leadership styles and acquiring the tools for leading multicultural teams and shaping corporate culture within the industry.

Cross-Cultural Negations and Communication

This course explores the effect of cultural differences on organizational behavior and negotiation in the global context. It exposes students to issues and problems that inevitably arise in international business when managers have to deal with culturally determined differences in values, attitudes and behaviors. The course assists students in developing cross-cultural communication competence and management and negotiation skills to successfully solve problems and capitalize on opportunities in a multicultural environment. Specific topics include understanding the foundations of culture and cultural frameworks; cross-cultural verbal and non-verbal communication and communication styles; motivation, decision making across cultures; negotiation and conflict resolution in global business settings.

Ethics and Responsibility

Business leaders must be aware of the moral implications of both corporate and personal actions. The master course provides a theoretical and practical approach to instances of ethics and morality, which determine the moral standards crucial for the success of any business model.
This course is divided into two blocks: on the one hand a historical and theoretical framework, and on the other hand modern aspects of social moral and personal ethics, that determine the concept and practice of Corporate Social Responsibility in any business proposal.

The Government and Legal Environment of Business

This course on the governmental and legal environment provides a theoretical and practical approach to business and its stakeholders including corporate governance. It examines the decision-making process from various angles, from determining what business structure would be best suited for starting a business to the methods of distributing the goods, analyzing the current factors that affect business decisions, how international law affects international business, and the various methods of alternative dispute resolutions.

Digital Law

As a business owner, you must have a general understanding of the legal aspects of running a business. Nowadays it is impossible to imagine a business without a website or a business which is not present digitally. Therefore, it is important to understand legal aspects of running a website, collecting personal data, or selling online. Digital law can be defined as the legal rights and restrictions governing technology use. The course provides information on current issues related to digital law and gives an overview of what digital law is, types of violations and their consequences.

Market Research

This course is about systematically gathering information, understanding it, and appraising initiatives and opportunities for business, as well as marketing decision making, such as product design, services, and marketing strategies that appeal to current or potential customer’s caprices, desires, needs, and wants. Students learn the basics of marketing research and how to use them to understand consumers and bring the products or services they want to market. They explore the latest consumer trends, how the digital world is changing marketing research and how to track and assess the effectiveness of online media and advertising.

Global Strategy and Management

A growing number of companies are increasingly expanding their horizons from local to global markets and resources. This course covers the challenges and opportunities that these changes create. It focuses on the aspects of strategic management that are specific to the global context. A combination of lectures, readings, class discussions, case studies, and presentations enable participants to gain an understanding of the strategic issues confronting firms operating internationally today.

Discovering Entrepreneurial Opportunities

Entrepreneurial opportunities may be found everywhere. Some say that “born entrepreneurs” are capable of finding them. However, that is not true. Certainly, some people might be more prone to discover market opportunities because they have always their eyes open looking for them. Over the last few years, many authors have developed methodologies for people to behave like entrepreneurs. In this course, the participants are able to ideate a business idea, to develop and build the first steps, and get feedback from current entrepreneurs. As participants, students are supposed to be diving into the world of entrepreneurship for the first time in their lives. Students are provided with useful tools, such as the StartUp Canvas and the experience applying the innovative methodology, Lego ® Serious Play ®, in the ideation phase in the development of a business project.

Creativity and Psychology of New Product Development

Creativity should not be considered as something “magic” or for talented people. Creativity can be learned or, better said, fostered and enhanced. This course is aimed to introduce the key concepts behind the area of New Product Generation, such as Product Launch steps and characteristics, product design, creativity, and psychological aspects related to both, creativity, and new product generation. The course focuses on the integration of different areas of knowledge and related tools: what are the steps followed to design, create, and introduce a new product, the psychology behind the adoption of a new product as far as customers/users are concerned, and the psychology behind the creative process, as far as designers are concerned. The course enhances students’ creativity, offers some design tools, and introduces philosophy such as Design Thinking. Students learn the steps of Design Thinking, as defined by Stanford and IDEO, and create some prototypes of businesses and products.

Managerial Accounting

This course helps to understand the procedures used by companies to calculate the cost of the products and services they offer in order to make the right decisions. Managerial Accounting is of strategic importance in an increasingly competitive environment. The course is delivered through a mix of theory, class exercises, and assignments to be solved at home. This course teaches students how to extract and modify costs in order to make informed managerial decisions. Planning is covered by topics including activity-based costing, budgeting, flexible budgeting, cost-volume profit analysis, cost estimating, and the costs of outsourcing. Control is covered by topics including standard costing, variance analysis, responsibility accounting, and performance evaluation. Emphasis is placed on cost terminology (the wide variety of costs), cost behavior, cost systems, and the limitations concerning the use of average costs.

Entrepreneurial Finance

This course provides knowledge and skills enabling students to be able to identify and assess the financial implications of new business planning and take account of relevant financial matters in managing a new business. It examines the elements of entrepreneurial finance, focusing on start-up ventures and the early stages of company development. The course addresses key questions which challenge all entrepreneurs: how much money can and should be raised; when should it be raised and from whom; what is a reasonable valuation of the company; and how should funding, employment contracts and exit decisions be structured. It aims to prepare students for these decisions, both as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

Marketing Management

This course provides an introduction to all aspects of marketing, including strategic marketing planning, marketing research, product planning and development, promotion planning, distribution, and pricing. It provides an understanding of the theories behind the marketing mix variables and a practical application in the context of the marketing management cycle processes of research, planning, organization, implementation, and control.

Digital Marketing

The course examines digital marketing strategy, implementation and executional considerations for BtoB and BtoC brands and provides a detailed understanding of all digital channels and platforms. Participants will complete the course with a comprehensive knowledge of and experience with how to develop an integrated digital marketing strategy, from formulation to implementation.

Going to Market: Managing the Channel and Sales Force

In today’s global and competitive environment, how to go to market is an essential choice for most managers - the choice of the optimal go-to-market approach critically determines a company’s success. This is true for B2C markets, B2B markets, as well as services. A well designed and executed go-to-market strategy will be a major source of differentiation; a badly designed and badly managed go-to-market strategy will almost certainly lead to failure. The course teaches the fundamentals on how to successfully design, manage, and evaluate a company’s channel, sales force strategy, and tactics. Go-to-market decisions can only be taken considering the overall marketing strategy. Therefore, students discuss the interaction of channel and sales force decisions with other marketing variables, such as branding, pricing, product characteristics, or the product lifecycle.

Global Project Management

This course explores the core concepts, processes and functions of project management needed to create and deliver value to customers and stakeholders, inside and outside organizations. Whether working for a corporation as a Project Manager or running your own business, project management tools are used by successful executive officers and business managers on a regular basis. This course explains how to improve operations performance to achieve a competitive advantage by understanding the power of project management in an international environment. It introduces students to the basics of project planning and also helps to examine projects from the vantage point of cross-cultural dynamics and real-life scenarios.

Brand Strategy in the XXI Century

Social Media Management

The importance of social media’s role in modern marketing efforts can no longer be ignored. It’s an integral component in almost all successful marketing strategies. With this increasing emphasis on integrated social media strategies, there is an undisputable need for companies to have end-to-end social media expertise. Through case studies, interactive sessions, and class exercises, students will learn best practices and develop the skills to connect business objectives with social media strategy, platforms and tactics. Topics will include choosing appropriate platforms, creating effective and engaging social media content, content management, social listening and creating a social media policy.

Brand Management

Brand management is an area of marketing focused on constructing, positioning, selling, and growing a profitable brand. Nowadays, the fierce global competition, as well as available technologies and the social media networks are bombarding audiences with massive information, including brand marketing messages. In this context, traditional brand management approaches are dramatically losing effectiveness. This course uses case studies and a project to expose students to the challenges commonly faced by brand managers. Topics range from assessing brand meaning, brand positioning and brand analytics to evaluating brand extensions, assessing brand strength, defending premier brands, repositioning mature brands, and building brands via non-traditional media (e.g., social media).

Entrepreneurship in the Digital Environment

Digital Operations

A part of the essential competencies of an organization resides in the people involved in the efficient management of the operations. This course aims to provide an understanding of the functions involved in the management of operations and the challenges of each one of them. Students are provided with concepts, tools and methods that allow them to become familiar with the governance of operations and decision-making process associated with the different functional areas of operations. The course will cover the fundamentals of operations management, offering an introduction to business models based on e-commerce and mobile platforms, and understanding the skills needed to support such models.

Design and Creation of E-commerce

E-commerce has become one of the main distribution channels for a majority of businesses all over the world. This course is focused on the fundamental concepts of e-commerce, its development, and management. Students will study the following topics: software options and solutions, engaging user experience, transaction management, e-commerce analysis and evaluation, and e-commerce marketing.
