Strategic Management for MBA Students

Strategic management involves all units and functions within an organization and therefore requires the integration of the various functional areas of business knowledge. This course explores strategic management from the perspective of the general manager whose responsibility is to maximize either the overall performance of the company or the performance of a business unit within this company. The course consists of three main sections: business strategy, corporate strategy and sustainability strategy.

Innovation and Technology Managment for Doctoral Students

Starting with Schumpeter (1942), innovation has been seen as the “fundamental impulse that sets and keeps the capitalist engine in motion”. Arrow (1962) however pointed out innovation has several unique characteristics that differentiate it from other types of economic goods, including asymmetric information and moral hazard issues. This course investigates topics such as endogenous growth and principle-agent contracting in the context of innovation, building on existing theoretical and empirical work.
