Marketing is a value-enhancing function that identifies opportunities, develops markets, and builds brands. Consequently, good marketing enables companies to charge price premiums, sustain competitive advantage and maintain long-run profitability. To this end, the course covers the following topics: understanding consumer and corporate behavior, conducting customer and competitor analysis, developing new products, branding and brand extension, pricing, designing distribution channels, and managing marketing-mix activities. First, the student will be exposed to the fundamental concepts of marketing and thus learn the “language” of marketing (i.e., talk-the-talk). 

The Strategic Management Course focuses on identifying and understanding the sources of superior firm performance.

Operations Research (also called Management Science) is the study of scientific approaches to decision-making. Through mathematical modeling, it seeks to design, improve and operate complex systems in the best possible way. The mathematical tools used for the solution of such models are either deterministic or stochastic, depending on the nature of the system modeled. In this class, we focus on basic deterministic models and methods in Operations Research as well as stochastic models. In this class, the student will learn very powerful modeling and solution techniques for decision-making problems that are used today by many successful companies to help them save/earn millions of dollars.
