BUSINESS FUNDAMENTALS

What makes a successful business? What tools do managers need in order to be successful? These are some of the questions the first core period aims to answer. Almost all classes are conducted using the case methodology, meaning that you learn by doing. Additionally, during the first core period, you will be introduced to the module “Career Strategy.”

MARKETING

The objective of this course is to introduce you to the concepts, analysis and activities that comprise marketing management.

ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR

This course enables you to understand the inner workings of an organization, and the behavior of the groups and individuals within it.

QUANTITATIVE METHODS

TECHNOLOGY AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT

This course focuses on enabling and transforming the role of IT in creating a long-term vision for an organization in the digital economy.

During the second period, you will learn more about advanced management techniques in modern business. Most courses will focus on the implementation of strategies in global organizations.

In addition, as a continuation of the “Career Strategy” module, you will participate in workshops and activities to develop your skills in areas such as networking, negotiations and communications.
