MBA career paths: specialise in Multinational Enterprise
For participants wishing to jump start MBA career paths with international organisations, modules of the Multi-National Enterprise gateway could include, but may be subject to change year on year:
- Antitrust and its Key Issues
The aim of the Antitrust and its key issues course is to enable participants to understand the impact of the E.U. competition policy upon international management, procedures and decision making. When working internationally, EU managers must understand both the US and EU models of competition policy worldwide. They must also have an awareness of the legal consequences of their decisions for their company as well as for themselves, and understand the changing legal framework.
Participants of this course will learn the key antitrust issues that firms face, including commercial policy, distribution networks, and mergers and acquisitions. They will study how to avoid cartels, how to defend their firm, how to organize distribution networks compatible with competition law, how to manage merger and take-over procedures and more.
- Business to Business Marketing
An understanding of the process to effectively convert targeted business prospects into customers is a core skill in your marketing toolbox. The primary objective of this course is to enable those students with a keen interest in business-to-business marketing to be able to manage these relationships, or enable their clients to manage these relationships, more effectively. The course encompasses key B2B marketing topics including multi-criteria decision marketing, segmentation, networking, B2B marketing research, the risk approach and conjoint analysis.
- Implementing International Strategy
This course addresses the creation of competitive advantage in large, complex, multinational firms. The module aims to provide participants with an understanding of the strategic, organisational and managerial challenges of implementing international strategies, particularly focusing on the social, cultural, political and regulatory environments in which companies enter and operate. These are often the variables and influences that delay or prevent the successful implementation of international strategy.
- Multi-National Enterprise Financing Strategy and Corporate Control
The Multinational Enterprise (MNE) Financing Strategy and Corporate Control course investigates financial decisions and their implications on the value of a firm. The course consists of two core parts: financing decisions in theory and in practice.
A focus on financing decisions in theory investigates how financial distress, different managerial incentives and information affects the financing decisions of firms. The course also covers payout policy decisions, investigating decisions about the cash that a firm generates in surplus of its needs. The practicalities of long and short term financing are discussed in order to understand financial decisions in practice. Long term financing refers to the way to effectively raise money, be it a common equity or a more sophisticated solution of the fixed income markets.
