This course gives you the opportunity to spend time exploring and reflecting on the career you want to create as entrepreneurs and innovators.  Offered over two semesters, the speaker series will cultivate your insight on topics such as dealing with setbacks, building your network, developing a global mind set, communicating your vision, taking responsibility for your learning and emotional awareness.  The course will build your confidence and empower you  to be bold and brave in taking action to become future leaders and change makers in social, cultural, artistic and economic contexts. 

Design thinking is a human-centred approach to solving problems and creating products, services and processes that people value.  This course explores the design thinking methodology of innovation and new product development.  It empowers you to use your intuition and qualitative methods such as empathy, storytelling and interviewing to identify user needs and new business opportunities.  You will learn the techniques of prototype building and testing to gather feedback and to quickly iterate.  By the end of the course you will know how to empathise, define, ideate, prototype and test user solutions and innovations.

Innovation is the capacity to invent, re-invent, specialize, modernize, revitalize and capitalize on ideas, products, services and virtual experiences in a globally connected world.  It is considered a critical prerequisite to assure growth at the firm level as well as that of national economies. Using innovation theory and case study analysis, you will learn to analyse and apply various innovative management techniques for both start-up (initial commercialization) and established firms.  The course will cover screening (entrepreneurial) opportunities, the stage-gate model, knowledge management, communities of practice, open vs. closed innovation and Christiansen’s disruptive innovation model.

We ‘need a strong France with a sense of its own destiny’ (Macron, 2017). To succeed in the French dynamic knowledge based business environment, individuals need to understand the unique French socio-cultural environment.

This skills-based course introduces you to the art and science of selling and negotiation.  You will learn techniques to counterbalance the liability of newness, common to start-up organisations, when selling and negotiating.  You will learn the difference between the two concepts as they relate to the sales process; the different styles and techniques involved in closing a sale or negotiating for what you want. You will learn best practice selling techniques and the characteristics of a good negotiator. 

The goal of the course is to familiarize students with the notion of a family business and its challenges, as well as to provide more specific exposure to family firms in France and worldwide.

Family-owned and -run businesses dominate in most economies. According to latest figures, around 83 percent of French businesses are family businesses. Similarly, worldwide family businesses account for around 70 to 90 percent of all businesses. In the US, family businesses constitute 85 percent of private sector employment and one-third of the S&P 500. The probability is high that many students will pursue careers in or with family businesses. Jobs in investment banking, wealth management, consulting and management all relate to some extent to family businesses. 

Family firms (both private and publicly traded) face unique challenges. These difficulties are primarily related to the interaction of family, management and ownership - particularly where the family wishes to preserve its influence and control from generation to generation.

The programme introduces a series of renowned speakers to debate some of the key challenges facing start-ups such as funding, managing the growing venture, keeping motivated during difficult times and building a talented team.  Each speaker will share their unique experiences and insight, providing a practical perspective and wisdom from many years in industry and entrepreneurship.  The International Speaker Series gives you a chance to connect with some of the best entrepreneurship speakers and thought leaders in their field.
