Aim of the course
The aim of this course is to offer advanced insights related to the theoretical and empirical recent developments in the area of Strategic Management, with a specific focus on economic and organizational theories of Strategy and International Business.
Course content and Structure
The course provides an overview on the most relevant theoretical traditions and empirical developments used in the field of Strategic Management. The aim is to offer students: i) comprehensive understanding about the foundations, assumptions and implications of economic and organizational theoretical perspectives, ii) clear understanding about empirical strategies. Ideally, in the end of the course students are able to engage in theory-building activities selecting and employing theoretical approaches more appropriately linked to the economic and organizational foundations of the field of Strategy. In addition, students are able to identify suitable empirical methods and approaches in line with those more familiarly used in Strategy.
More specifically, these are the main topics developed during the course:
a. Micro-foundations of organizational value creation
- Behavioral perspectives on international business strategy
c. Econometric issues in Strategic Management: Data and Methods
d. Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship
The structure of the course is based on 2 main activities and related objective:
- Lecture. One or more faculty offer class-based lecture on each of the above-mentioned topics. The purpose of this activity is to engage students in papers discussion with the responsible faculty in charge of the session and other students.
- Paper Development. Each student is assigned to a small group of other participants that is leaded by one faculty. Each student discusses with and receives detailed feedback from the faculty-discussant on how to further develop a specific working paper (previously submitted).
The course includes 4 lecture-based sessions of 4 hours each, and 1 paper development session of 3 hours. Because of the small numbers of participants, the sessions will be conducted in a highly interactive manner where students will prepare memos on and lead discussions on the assigned readings.
The course is based on a high level of student involvement. Students are expected to be thoroughly prepared and to take an active part in the presentation and discussion of the material. Given the high content-to-time ratio, teaching is based on lecturing, illustrations and discussions and its success is predicated on interactive student involvement.
There is no exam at the end of the course. However, to obtain the course certificates the participants are expected to show high level of preparation and class participation. Minimum 80% attendance is required. This is a 4 ECTS course, with 19 classroom hours (each classroom hour is 45 minutes).
