Key Modules
Emerging Technologies
The fourth industrial revolution, or 4IR, is upon us, and emerging technologies are at its core. Businesses must adapt to this new reality, or they will jeopardize their own survival. In this context, a solid understanding of emerging technologies and their potential value to an organization is critical for any business manager. This course explores the current spectrum of emerging technologies from various perspectives, focusing on their business application for competitive advantage. The emphasis is on fostering the development of students’ individual opinions on this fast-evolving theme.

Management Information Systems

This course provides a comprehensive overview of business firms' information systems today while drawing connections between MIS and business performance. This course starts by introducing major themes related to organizations, management, and the networked enterprise. It then provides the technical foundation for understanding information systems by examining hardware, software, database, networking technologies, and tools and techniques for security and control. The journey continues by examining the core information system applications businesses are using today to improve operational excellence and decision making. Finally, the focus is on using the knowledge acquired earlier on in the course to analyze and design information system solutions to business problems.

Fundamentals of Corporate Strategy

This course emphasizes the fundamentals of corporate (and business level) strategy formulation and implementation in today’s complex and highly competitive environment. It will cover tools and techniques to understand the competitive structure and a company’s competitive advantage. Students will analyze various strategic decisions, including positioning, pricing, diversification, and resource allocation across different businesses. The course will also look into how organizational structure, culture, and governance impact effective strategy development and implementation and how the company-specific capabilities underpin the competitive strategy in the marketplace.
Leadership and Organization Behavior
This course focuses on the international dimensions of strategy and competition and provides a framework for formulating strategies in an increasingly complex world economy. It provides students with the tools better to understand today’s global economy's competitive forces and develop strategic perspectives to effectively work in today’s interconnected world. The course examines the basic frameworks for understanding competitive strategy in international business and identifying the opportunities presented in a dynamic global environment.
