This course studies the challenges of innovation and how marketing, strategic management, and entrepreneurial issues directly impact the success or “commercialization” of new product and service development. Concepts for creating added value in products and services (the heart of successful innovation) will be applied to a variety of types of innovations: both those referred to in terms such as major, radical, disruptive, or discontinuous with past approaches, and as those relatively described as incremental, sustaining, or continuous. The innovations may be technological or procedural or even a different way of doing business, and may occur in different institutional settings such as startup-companies and large corporations.

This course is intended primarily for international students to introduce them to American institutions — business, educational, and political in particular — within the context of American history, popular culture, and society. Students will learn about the unique features of American management and enterprise. The Boston metropolitan area will play an important role in appreciating the overall historical and cultural context, as will contemporary issues, scholarship, and unfolding events in illustrating distinctive features of American life and commerce.

Integrates the areas of marketing, finance, accounting, economics, and personnel into a managerial concept of business decision making. We will thoroughly examine the concepts of strategic planning and management by discussing about the challenges of strategic management, the impact external factors have on a company’s strategic plan, strategy formulation and implementation techniques, organizational communications and commitment building, feedback and control tools to monitor and adjust the steps necessary for successful implementation of strategies, and more.

This course deals with the causes and consequences of international trade. We will first investigate the causes of international trade and the consequences for welfare and income distribution. We will then analyze the consequences of international mobility of capital and labor. In the latter part of the course we will analyze the motives for countries to adopt policies that restrict international trade and study the economic consequences of such policies. This course aims at putting students in the position of analyzing and understanding the current debate over the use of trade policy or the multilateral commercial system (WTO). Therefore, we will use the tools of the models studied in class to understand and discuss the most recent patterns and evolutions of the international trade system.

This course is designed to develop and deepen students understanding of the interplay between “Leaders” and the organizations they run. Through investigating leadership theories and research, and how leadership operates within organizations, students will also reflect on their own experiences, and their skills and talents, to also gain insight about what part leadership plays within their own behavior. Hence the focus of this course will be on the practical and the applied, as well as on the theoretical, to give students an expanded understanding of their own unique leadership abilities.

This course examines cross-cultural and international management issues and analyzes the problems of managing in an international marketplace. It focuses on cultural and regional diversity and differences, political and economic influences, global market factors, and other contingencies with which managers of multinational enterprises must contend. The course covers an array of management practices – from human resource staffing, to motivating a multi-cultural workforce, to creating strategic alliances for both large and small international firms. Class activities, self-assessment exercises, and case studies are used to explore international dimensions of organizational behavior (e.g., leadership, decision-making, problem-solving and conflict resolution).

In this course we look at operations from a process perspective – that is processes as the unit of analysis rather than functional department of the firm. This provides a much more relevant picture of the way firms work. Departments typically have their own set of objectives, resources to achieve those objectives, and managers and employees responsible for departmental performance. Some processes may be contained fully within a single department; however, the concept of process is usually much broader. A process, such as product and service development, has its own objectives and involves workflow that cuts across several department boundaries.

This course examines the international business, legal and regulatory environment. Topics include the international sale of goods, imports, exports, technology transfers, foreign direct investment, intellectual property, The World Trade Organization, marketing law, ethics and corporate social responsibility.
