What subjects are you going to study?
Business management fundamentals
The programme begins with a block of compulsory subjects which provides students with a conceptual base for managerial action and which is in line with EOI principles and values. These values are considered essential for a competitive global environment and for business success.
- Global entrepreneurship
This course examines the opportunities and challenges for entrepreneurs in a global context, particularly in emerging markets. Students will learn to analyze opportunities, evaluate new ideas, explore the sources of finance, produce business plans and how to implement them. In addition to discussing the range of global entrepreneurial situations, student groups pick one particular market opportunity on which to focus, develop and present a business plan.
- Final project
As part of a team, the student will work collaboratively identifying and developing a business idea, completing different phases required to put together a full business plan to present in June to an international panel.
Students will be assessed based upon the teams results, his personal involvement and knowledge of the project.
Also presentations skills will be evaluated.
- Competitive & corporate strategy
This course explores the formulation and analysis of business strategy. Business strategy is the set of objectives and policies that collectively determine how a business positions itself to increase its returns and create economic value for its owners and stakeholders.
This course will explore analytical techniques for diagnosing the competitive position of a business: evaluating business strategies and identifying and analyzing specific business options. These concepts will help the student to design an effective an comprehensive business strategy, but perhaps more importantly the course aims to instill a strategic mindset.
The course prepares students to identify, analyze, and resolve strategic international marketing problems. Students will have to formulate, implement, and evaluate international marketing strategies at the level of the business unit for international market entry, expansion, and global rationalization.
