Contribution of the course to the educational objectives of the programme
How the course contributes to the programme :
Business environment is in constant change and firms are facing new challenges they did not imagine before. Therefore, companies require managers capable of defining the vision and the strategy that would lead companies to succeed in their industries. This situation would only be possible if future managers understand how to develop businesses that keep the company competitive in a world where commercial borders are falling down and where creativity and imagination are key elements to outperform competition.
Globalization is the driving force leading this change. The key question is how to be competitive according to the risks and opportunities offered by the new business environment. Nowadays, companies look for managers who can solve complex problems and create opportunities that allow the firm to act fast and with the lowest possible risks.
