PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGY:
projects focus on feasibility and implementation, as well as improved
efficiency and profit. This module combines organizational and
academic interests by equipping students with the methodology
to use related knowledge, theory and practice on a live workplace
course takes off in two directions. The first direction involves
familiarization with the advanced topics in corporate finance
such as cash flow analysis under uncertainty, application of asset
pricing theory, capital structure issues, dividend policy, valuation
of financial instruments, and understanding of agency theory and

is nothing more than the knowledge of how to convert inputs into
outputs in order to create functionality. Although a firm is a
container for other kinds of knowledge as well (such as its understanding
of its customers and its ability to execute administrative routines),
technical know-how occupies a special role in its strategy. In
order to manage in a post-industrial economy, general managers
must understand how technologies are created, copied, protected
against imitation, and converted into competitive advantage.
In addition, today's general managers must understand what is
new about the "new economy." Increasingly, both products
and processes can be connected to one another via a ubiquitous,
standardized, software-enabled digital communications network:
the Internet. The cost of transmitting and receiving knowledge
is falling toward zero, as is the cost of capturing unprecedented
volumes of information from both products and processes. Consequently,
you need an intellectual toolkit that helps you manage in an environment
where firms and their products or services are embedded in an
open network that tends more and more to every element of a truly
global economy. The latter half of the course focuses principally
on the strategic and managerial challenges posed by network technologies.

tools and frameworks they will need to effectively for the development
of technology strategies and effective management innovation processes
at the company level. The course is based on the premise that
managing technology and innovation depends upon the local and
global environment faced by a company. Thus, along with the management
issues internal to the company, students will also develop an
understanding of the key external forces that affect managing
as well as the change of innovation processes and technology.
The study of the subject seeks to improve the effectiveness by
which advanced technologies are developed, implemented, and institutionalized.
At the micro-level, it is concerned with enhancing the ability
of firms to use technology to compete effectively. Organizational
change and redesign plays a major role in employing new technologies
and enhancing organizational competitiveness. At the macro-level,
it is a key factor in economic development and growth.
general goals of the course are to gain a critical awareness of
the strengths and weaknesses of market economies from an ethical
point of view and to develop the analytic tools and research skills
needed to address contemporary ethical problems in business both

questions addressed are controversial. Often thoughtful people
of good will can have strongly held opposing views on the issues.
There will be opportunities to review one's positions of representative
advocates of one side or the other, but, ultimately, the participants
are expected to engage the issue and form their own opinions.
The learning in this course will come from the participant's willingness
to internalize the issues and from the effort he/she puts into
formulating his/her own views so that they can expressed clearly
and convincingly in class discussion.
