Overview

The course allows participants to master business development processes – being in the form of growing trajectories of existing firms or new start-ups – from multiple perspectives.

On the one hand, the course provides a deep understanding of business models and value creation processes connected to the dynamic global competitive scenario, the management of a variety of markets, and the opportunities offered by digital technologies.

On the other hand, the course explores the innovation frontiers going beyond technological innovation to include also market-driven innovation and social innovation, and its implications for the competitive advantage of firms.

Students will not only benefit from theoretical analyses and cutting-edge research developed at DSEA, but they will also go through learning-by-doing processes within the managerial labs proposed in EI.

A large number of case study presentations and business events are organized to further enhance internship and work opportunities. Meetings with entrepreneurs and events oriented to explore entrepreneurial opportunities are also offered.

Programme structure

The course spread over four semesters is designed to thoroughly prepare students in the areas of management, economics, legal, and quantitative business management. During the first year, courses develop competences in the analysis, measure, control, and development of markets and organizations at a global scale. In the first semester of the second year, course units develop additional specialized expertise on Entrepreneurship, Economics and Human resource management, as well as service-oriented firms. In the second semester of the second year, course units are oriented to enhance theoretical and practical knowledge through interactive laboratories (managerial labs) and focused on selected topics (doing business in emerging economies and economic and economic growth). Courses are based on active learning perspective.
