EXECUTIVE MBA

The Executive MBA requires the student to complete the 6 Core modules and 4 of the Elective Modules and a Disseration.

Core Modules

EMB101 BUSINESS POLICY AND PLANNING:
Business Policy is often considered a "capstone" course in most MBA programs. The course is designed for Corporate MBA students and provides these students with an opportunity to integrate their knowledge, skills and experiences into a unified understanding of enterprise strategic management.

EMB102 BUSINESS ANALYSIS:
The course provides students with advanced coverage of managerial decision-making and offers an opportunity to syntheses and apply concepts and insights distilled from previous courses on Strategic Management and Finance. It focuses on the critical business skills of using the strategic analysis tools and problem solving techniques. The elements of strategic thinking; the methods of strategic analysis; the tasks and processes associated with strategy formulation and implementation; and the ramifications of aligning the operations and culture of an enterprise to match the requirements of strategy -are all examined in detail.

EMB103 OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT:
Understanding the role of the operations function and its impact on the competitiveness of the firm is an important part of any manager's training. Operational issues include designing, acquiring, operating, and maintaining the facilities and processes; purchasing raw materials; controlling and maintaining inventories; and providing the proper labor needed to produce a good or service so that customers' expectations are met.

EMB104 INTERNATIONAL MARKETING STRATEGY:
The goal of this course is the enhancement of your understanding of Strategic International Marketing, and SIM'S fundamental importance and contribution to today's businesses or operation of any size. Strategic International Marketing is treated as a necessary continuum of knowledge and activity fundamental to the business and its management activity and not as a form and purpose function.
Course objectives include providing a background in international business and economics, human resources, cultural issues and interrelationships, and business decision processes in product planning, marketing, and organizational planning, structure, goals, and performance.

EMB105 LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT:
The course emphasizes the importance of knowledge and skills in a changing world that managers need to become effective in leading others. The focus is on assessing leadership practices, exploring the power and adventure of learning self-leadership, planning for action-oriented behavioral change, and understanding how leadership can impact individuals, teams, and organization toward effectively anticipating and adapting to change.

EMB106 MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE:
This course focuses on the managerial responsibility for the development of the organization and the diverse technologies that a manager can employ to support organizational improvement. It provides a survey of the organizational literature, culture, values and skills that can be used by the manager, leader, or administrator to influence organizational change. A parallel emphasis will focus on the roles of consultants/facilitators in the organization's development.


Module Electives

EMB107 PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGY:
Organizational 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 problem-solving assignment.

EMB108 CORPORATE FINANCE:
The 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 financial signaling. The second direction involves case analysis and application of the theoretical concepts we learn to the real world.

EMB109 INFORMATION MANAGEMENT:
Technology 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.

EMB110 ENTREPRENEURSHIP:
The entrepreneur is an agent of change in a free market economy and a catalyst for technological progress. In this course, we will study the new venture creation process and explore how entrepreneurs combine innovation with opportunity, convert ideas into business ventures, and manage the growth of an enterprise in highly competitive global markets.

EMB111 INNOVATION MANAGEMENT:
Considers innovation in a historical context, organizing organizational culture and innovation, managing, cross-functional teams, venturing and organization learning, intra- and entrepreneurship, managing R&D resources, executive leadership and the management of innovation, and change and designing innovative organizations.

EMB112 MANAGEMENT OF TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION:
This course is designed to give students an understanding of the concepts, 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.

EMB113 BUSINESS ETHICS:
The 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 from a philosophical and practical stand points.

The 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.

EMB114 CONTEMPORARY MANAGEMENT:
Survey of the history of management and review of significant management literature. Applications of management theories to practical problems in planning, organizing, and controlling business activity.

EMB115 MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY:
The aim of the course is to provide the student with theoretical and practical knowledge in consultation work. It deals especially with the understanding the nature of consultation work and different methods of performing consultancy. The course also places emphasis on oral and written presentations and active student participation.


DISSERATION -MANAGEMENT APPLICATION PROJECT:
This dissertation should be no less than 20,000 words and considering a new innovative framework under the following guidelines

This dissertation will enable students to develop the theoretical and practical skills needed to carry out successful consulting projects within organizations, either as an external investigator or as a line manager given a one-off problem-solving task. Investigations of all kinds will be considered including those concerned with providing advice on strategic and tactical options, those concerning the design and development of systems and procedures and those concerning the resolution of practical operational difficulties. The dissertation will enable students to make good use of their individual technical knowledge and skills while working within the constraints of organizational decision-making.
