“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

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 organise for and assess performance. We will achieve this using analytical tools and concepts.

The course is organised 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 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 relation 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 fundamental knowledge in marketing. You will learn the role of marketing in the (global) organisation and how to be responsible and well- informed decision-makers. In a context where marketing is often criticised for lacking (numerical) inputs, and sometimes even valid and reliable market data, our aim in this class is also to insist on creating financially-viable solutions for the corporate partner, Procter & Gamble, which will sponsor this fundamental marketing management course. 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. Thus, the question is: how can one implement people management practices that facilitate individual and organisational effectiveness? This course will provide you with solid, evidence-based knowledge on Human Resource Management that is also actionable. 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 organisations 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.

 

S2: SKK GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS*

This  course  is  designed  as  an  introductory  overview  of  Korean  history,  culture  and  society  from  ancient  times to  the  present.  It  will  also  help  students,  who  do  not  have  prior  knowledge,  to understand the cultural norms, values and attitudes of contemporary Korean society. The course is divided  into  three  themes: History  &  Politics,  Culture  &  Society  and  Contemporary  Issues.  The  class  lectures  will  be  supplemented with  films,  video  clips,  slides  and  other  visual materials.

The international negotiation course gives you an opportunity to improve upon your ability to negotiate and influence others. The best way to learn negotiation skills is to actually negotiate in a safe environment that provides insights, feedback, opportunities for reflection, and where careful analysis is required. Therefore, this course is experiential; students receive hands-on experience in preparing for and negotiating in a number of different scenarios.

This course covers the nature and functions of law, including areas such as torts, contracts and intellectual property, as they pertain to the business environment. Emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to understand and apply rules of business law. Students will be asked to think critically by: identifying legal issues in given assignments; identifying the law applicable to those issues; analyzing the facts of the given situations in light of the applicable law; expressing the most likely outcomes of those situations; and explaining lessons the student learned from the assignments.

Integrated Capstone Project where you, working in teams, will be challenged to make sound business decisions that combines everything you learned during the semester.

High Technology refers to that class of products and services which is subject to technological change at a pace significantly faster than for most goods in the economy. Under such circumstances, the marketing task faced by the high technology firm differs in some ways from the usual. The purpose of this course is to explore these differences.

An operationally focused course that aims to develop the interdisciplinary skills required for successful product development. Through readings, case studies, guest speakers, applied projects, and student research, students discover the basic tools, methods, and organizational structures used in new product development management. Course covers process phases: idea generation, product definition, product development, testing and refinement, manufacturing ramp-up and product launch.

Based on Haas Professor Steve Blank’s pioneering work, this course provides real world, hands- on learning on what it’s like to actually start a high tech company. This class is not about how to write a business plan. It’s not an exercise on how smart you are in a classroom, or how well you use the research library to size markets. And the end result is not a PowerPoint slide deck for a VC 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 a classroom and a limited amount of time, is to create an entrepreneurial experience for you with all of the pressures and demands of the real world in an early stage start up.

This is a course about financing new entrepreneurial ventures, emphasizing those that have the possibility of creating a national or international impact or both. It will take two perspectives - the entrepreneur's and the investor's - and it will place a special focus on the venture capital process, including how they are formed and managed, accessing the public markets, mergers, and strategic alliances.

This course is intended to provide the core skills needed for the identification of opportunities that can lead to successful, entrepreneurial high technology ventures, regardless of the individual's "home" skill set, whether technical or managerial. We examine in depth the approaches most likely to succeed for entrepreneurial companies as a function of markets and technologies. Emphasis is placed on the special requirements for creating and executing strategy in a setting of rapid technological change and limited resources. This course is particularly suited for those who anticipate founding or operating technology companies.

The primary objective of this course and the associated innovation consulting projects is for students to learn and apply the approaches, skills, and behaviors required to successfully initiate and drive innovation in a complex organization. Students taking the course will use concepts and tools from several other foundational business courses, including Economic Analysis for Business Decisions, Strategic Leadership, Leading People, Finance, and Problem Finding Problem Solving. As important, the student teams are expected to deliver the highest quality work and deliverables, genuine insights, innovative solutions, and real value on mission-critical client projects.

Marketing is customer-driven. At the core of superior marketing practice is a sincere concern for the customer - trying to properly understand and satisfy customer needs by tailoring offerings to consumer needs. The objective of this course is to examine the key theoretical frameworks and the basic psychological concepts underlying consumer behavior, with the goal of understanding how they can be applied in analysing marketing problems. The overall goal is to provide you with a set of ideas and approaches to consider when faced with a decision involving understanding consumer responses to your marketing actions.

This course will equip you with the skill to address the pricing decision in numerous scenarios. The course integrates the concepts from economics, marketing and other business disciplines to provide you with a holistic approach to develop a pricing strategy for your firm. We consider pricing tactics of both differentiated and commoditised products in monopolistic and competitive environments. Price differentiation tactics such as direct price discrimination, time of use pricing, price promotions, quantity discounts and bundling will be discussed.

Specifically, we look at the pricing of product portfolio, impact of pricing on channel relationship, and the interaction between pricing and advertising.

Prerequisites: Foundation and functional core courses

The course is the continuation of the Marketing Management course. The purpose of this course is to provide frameworks and tools to solve strategic-level marketing problems and to teach students how to create a detailed marketing plan. Taking the perspective of a senior marketing executive, the class will focus on marketing planning design, implementation, and evaluation. Our focus will therefore go beyond marketing tactics for a single product or service offering. Instead, we will examine the strategic level management of a firm’s marketing resources and capabilities in order to maximise long-run customer value that generate the greatest financial return for the firm. The pedagogical tools used in the course will be case discussion and a simulation game. Class lectures will be kept to a minimal.

This course covers the challenges faced by managers and employees when operating in culturally diverse environments.  The focus is to explore the vast cultural differences that exist across countries and to learn strategies to improve students’ ability to effectively work, communicate, manage, and lead in these environments.

Strategy research concerns the study of how companies can enhance their performance and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. However, strategy research has developed tools that can also be powerful when applying to one’s life. This course provides the participants with such a "strategy toolbox” ready to be implemented to their professional and personal life. The course is structured as a mix between strategy theories and practical applications, and it aims to make tangible improvements to your own life during the length of the course. Assessment of the course is based both on theoretical knowledge and on the practical results obtained during the duration of the course. In addition, there is a self-selected individual project dealing with either eliminating a problem from your life or doing something you have never done before.

This course shows how to develop a more flexible communication style to ensure your ideas are heard and understood in all situations.
