“I am excited by the Global Economic Transformation & Technology (GETT) and its ability to make the experience of learning exciting, cutting edge and meaningful to the economic and social challenges confronting the world today. As a Strategic Management scholar trained in Business History, I can see the importance to understand long term implications of technology transformation in our societies for future business leaders. On top of those wanting to join corporations to create the future of technology and business, many students of the present generation thrive to participate into venture creation or join mission-driven organizations. I wish to help them achieve their goals and look forward to meet them in a few years to witness their personal development and professional success. The development of this programme fulfils my purpose to create a platform to educate the brightest minds interested in the concepts transforming the world of business and society. The Global Economic Transformation & Technology (GETT) track at EDHEC Business School was created in the spirit and the values of this Grande École: to train students to participate in the new economy by giving them a strong foundation in business management skills and exposure to the progressive trends impacting the world. I am impatient to accompany our students in a discovery journey through three continents and incredible cities and to collaborate with first class partner universities along the programme.”

S1: EDHEC BUSINESS SCHOOL

The primary objective of this course is to help you answer some of the strategic questions that are important to companies and organisations. What business do we want to be in? How do we compete for resources and create value? How do we best achieve and assess performance? Which analytical tools and concepts should we use? The course is largely tutorial based, with some lectures, to encourage interactivity and student participation. We will work on case studies in relatively small groups. Each analytical tool and concept will be introduced in the context of real-world business situations.

The aim of this course is to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles of corporate finance (capital budgeting, project financing costs and capital structure). You will learn to calculate the cash flows and returns of a project, to understand the relationship between the risk of and return on financial assets, to estimate the cost of equity and the weighted average cost of capital of a firm and to understand the pros and cons of debt versus equity financing.

This course will set out a conceptual framework that will help you to understand how businesses generate value and how this value is captured in financial statements. Financial statements are of paramount importance to investors and creditors and key to the decision-making of managers, consultants, auditors, analysts and regulators. You will learn to determine wealth creation, to calculate levels of investment in working capital, capital expenditure, company financing and leverage, and to estimate profitability. The course demonstrates how financial-statement analysis can reduce uncertainty and increase confidence in business decisions.

This course aims to give you a fundamental knowledge of marketing. You will learn about the role of marketing in a (global) organisation and how to become a responsible and well-informed decision-maker. With marketing sometimes criticised for a lack of numerical inputs and reliable market data, we will show you how to create financially viable solutions for our corporate partner and module sponsor, Procter & Gamble. Completing this course will give you the tools you need to succeed in a marketing management position in your future organisation.

A company’s human resources are crucial to organisational success. So, how can we implement people-management practices that facilitate both individual and organisational effectiveness? This course will provide you with solid, evidence-based, actionable knowledge on human resource management. You will learn about theoretical concepts and frameworks to help you diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of HR policies and identify ways in which these can be applied in organisations to make them more productive. The course will give you a better understanding of some of the essential aspects of working in diverse groups, including team effectiveness, managing diversity, handling conflict and negotiation skills.

Pitch Academy encourages you to discover, develop and hone your pitching skills. You will gain the ability to promote yourself in a concise, but impressive way. The course will improve your proficiency in public speaking and help you stand out from the crowd.

This course introduces you to the major science and technology milestones of the 19th and 20th centuries and helps you to understand how history is intrinsically linked to the dynamics of innovation today.

As digital technologies and their global impact become an increasingly prominent feature of public debate (data usage, social cohesion, access to commodities, etc), this course takes a critical approach to the co-dependence, co-influence and co-production of technology and society. It gives you the tools you will need to foster innovation and make a positive contribution to society.

CAPSTONE is a three-day business simulation that incorporates the challenges of business development into cross-functional decision-making. You will assess the relative importance of finance, marketing, R&D and management capabilities, monitor team dynamics and reflect on your learning process and contribution. It will enable you to identify the drivers of managerial success, optimise financial, marketing, R&D and management tools, and implement a total quality management system.

Our foreign-language courses are designed to help you better understand how French and Korean are used in everyday life and in business situations. These modules will enable you to read and understand written material on a range of everyday topics, teach you appropriate behaviour and expressions for business use, and help you to summarise information and size up relationships in business situations.

 

S2: SKK GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS*

Based on Haas Professor Steve Blank’s pioneering work, this course provides real-world, hands-on learning about what it’s actually like to start a high-tech company. This class is not about how to write a business plan. It’s not an exercise in how smart you are in the classroom or how well you use the research library to size markets. The end result is not a PowerPoint slide deck for a venture-capital presentation. And it is most definitely not an incubator where you come to build the “hot idea” that you have in mind. This is a practical class. Our goal, within the constraints of the classroom and the limited time available, is to create an entrepreneurial experience for you, with all of the pressures and demands of an early-stage start-up in the real world.

This is a course about financing new entrepreneurial ventures, with an emphasis on those that have the potential to have national and/or international impact. It will approach the topic from two perspectives: that of the entrepreneur and that of the investor. It will focus, in particular, on the venture-capital process, including how such financing vehicles are formed and managed, accessing public markets, mergers and strategic alliances.

This course aims to provide you with the core skills to identify opportunities that can lead to successful, entrepreneurial high-technology ventures, regardless of your "home" skill set, be it technical or managerial. We explore the approaches most likely to succeed for entrepreneurial companies as a function of markets and technologies, placing emphasis on the special requirements for creating and executing strategy in a setting of rapid technological change and limited resources. This course is particularly suited to those of you who expect to found or run technology companies.

This course gives you an introduction to the application of mathematics and statistics in the field of finance. It consists of three integrated modules: (1) an introduction to the quantitative foundations of finance, using calculus, linear algebra, statistics and probability; (2) an extension into financial theory as it relates to asset pricing, fixed income, derivatives, structured finance and risk management; and (3) the application and implementation of these foundational tools and theory through software, such as Excel, to build basic quantitative financial models (touching on programming). The goal is for you to be able to use financial models to guide your business and financial decisions.
