Finance

  • Corporate Finance focuses on the interactions between financial structures and the value of the underlying real assets. After a short introduction to capital budgeting and valuation methods, the course focuses on the process of capital structure decisions. Recent theories in corporate finance are illustrated through a series of examples and cases. Special emphasis is placed on the ways in which financing affects the incentive structure of financial claimants.
  • Financial Strategy takes a financial approach to managerial decision making. Funding needs, financing decisions, and investment decisions are discussed. Understanding how financial decisions affect firm value is a focus of the course. Case discussions of large, small, international, and country-specific firms provide the main vehicle for learning in this course.

Marketing

  • Marketing Management develops an understanding of and skill in formulating and planning marketing strategies. Understanding, developing, and evaluating brand strategies over the life of a product are key components of the course. Topics also include strategies for pioneering brands and later entrants and strategies for growth in declining markets.
  • Advanced Marketing: Pricing covers pricing strategy, a fundamentally quantitative area of marketing decision-making. The course combines cases and assignments to teach students how to design and execute pricing strategies.

Operations

Three critical concepts form the base of this course: locating and costing bottlenecks, reducing variability, and managing variability. These concepts provide insight into process analysis, quality, inventory control, capacity planning, and location.
