This course's primary objective is to help you answer several important strategic questions for companies or organizations such as What business shall we be in? How to compete for resources and create value? How to organize for and assess performance. We will achieve this using analytical tools and concepts. The course is organized mostly in tutorials with some lectures, both formats are meant to be interactive and value student contribution. We will work on relatively small groups of half-cohorts where students will work on the case. Each analytical tool and concept will be introduced by referring to real-world business situations.

This course focuses on financial statement analysis. It is designed to equip students with a conceptual framework that helps them understand how businesses generate value and how this value is captured in financial statements. The use of financial statements is predominant for investors and creditors and is also highly relevant to the decisions of managers, consultants, auditors, analysts and regulators. After completing the course, you should be able to measure wealth creation, the level of investment in working capital and capital expenditure, company financing, leverage and profitability. The course demonstrates how financial statement analysis can reduce uncertainty and increase confidence in business decisions.

The objective of this course is to provide a solid grounding in the principles of corporate finance (capital budgeting, cost of financing projects, capital structure). You will learn to compute the cash flows of a project, compute the return of a project, understand the relationship between risk and return of financial assets, estimate the cost of equity and the weighted average cost of capital of a firm, and understand the cost and benefits of debt financing relative to equity financing.

The purpose of this course is to give you the fundamental knowledge of marketing. You will learn the role of marketing in the (global) organization and how to be responsible and well- informed decision-makers.

Completion of this course will prepare you to successfully secure and hold any marketing management position within a company.

A company’s human resources represent the most powerful form of capital for organizational success.

You will learn about theoretical concepts and frameworks to help you in diagnosing the strengths and weaknesses of HR policies and identify ways in which the knowledge gained in the course can be applied in organizations to make them more productive. Completion of the course will give you a better understanding of some of the essential aspects of working in groups; including team effectiveness, managing team diversity, handling conflict, and negotiation skills applied to both national and multicultural teams.

Students use the features of Microsoft Excel to study product costs, determine pricing, and track payroll. They build spreadsheet models to help make informed business decisions. The course closes with the Monte Carlo simulation, a tool for understanding the effect of uncertainty on business decisions.

Businesses engage with many different kinds of value that are important for various constituents of society.

Nearly all large- and many medium-sized firms operate in multiple markets and are therefore implementing some kind of corporate growth. These firms have undergone enormous change in the last thirty years. The merger and acquisition booms of the sixties and eighties extended the scope of many existing corporations. New forms of organization, such as the LBO partnerships of the eighties, provoked a debate about the efficacy of corporate hierarchies. More recently, capital market pressures have forced many organizations to reassess their portfolio of businesses, level of overhead, and the way they coordinate and control their business activities. In response to these pressures a variety of new institutional arrangements, such as joint ventures, strategic alliances, and virtual firms, have come into prominence.

Business managers are confronted with a wide range of problems, within a multinational and competitive market, which need a decision. Instead of taking decisions intuitively, managers should be able to understand and interpret (large amounts of) data and to base their decisions on the results of data analysis and model building. This course offers the tools and methodology to make sound decisions.

The last decades have witnessed a shift of economic activity from standalone firms to interfirm alliances, as the escalation of competition and the acceleration of innovation cycles make it increasingly difficult for firms to develop new technologies and to market their products on their own. Thus strategic alliances between firms are becoming increasingly important as a source of superior performance and competitive advantage. This course aims at investigating how to manage successfully strategic alliances or partnerships at each stage of the alliance process: the initial alliance formation, the alliance design, the evolution and maturity of the alliance, etc.

You will apply this knowledge to creating spreadsheet models, powerful tools for analyzing data and making business decisions.
