  • MONDAY MAY 22, 2017

    • The Role of Senior Management and Stakeholder Management

      Professor: Pascual Montañés
      The main objective of the course is to identify the actual role of the stakeholder in the strategy and leadership of managers. Adaptation to the environment goes through knowing the changes with a vision of the future. Developing this vision and making it happen is the primary objective of this program. Likewise, the ability to accurately map stakeholders of a company is developed, as well as the identification of the values and major changes in their behavior and expectations.

    • Technological Vision for Senior Management

      Professor: Enrique Dans
      For the manager, having an overview of how technology can affect your personal, professional and corporate way of life is an absolute necessity, since it absolutely affects all of them. After these sessions, it is expected that the student will reach a deep understanding of the network and what it means today, that he understands the role of its latest tools (search engines, weblogs, forums, wikis, RSS) and this toolkit brings about a change in his way of relating to the network. It also looks for him to understand the implications of new technologies in the way that companies have to work and try to reach a final map that can be placed all the factors studied in a consistent manner.

    • Andean Leadership Lessons

      Professor: Piero Morosini
      We discover, from Professor Morosini, the "Imaginative Leadership" practiced by Medtronic, Reanult-Nissan, Inditex, Grupo AJE, and other global multinational leaders. Based on original research by Professor Morosini, "Imaginative Leadership" shows striking similarities with ancient Andean thought. We will explore these commonalities to articulate "Imaginative Leadership" as a paradigm capable of uniting the past and the present, and project it into the future of high-performance global organizations.

    • Management of High Performance Teams

      Professor: Jesús Izquierdo
      Globalization and the new economy present new challenges to organizations that are forced to innovate and adapt to a changing environment. Responding to these challenges, many organizations are replacing hierarchical structures for structures that are flatter and more horizontal in which the working groups are the main axis on which the organizational strategy turns. In this context, the success of management is closely linked to its ability to create, design and develop effective working groups. The nature of these working groups, being heterogeneous in most cases, forces people in human resources entrusted to be experts on the conduct of individuals and groups, that is, first at an individual level and then at a group level.

  • WEDNESDAY MAY 24, 2017

    • Doing Business in China

      Professor: Ramiro García
      In this course, important topics will be touched upon theoretically and practically, such as: The New China: Drastic change of scenario for 2020, implications for Western business, how to deal with the new Chinese competitors, growing industries in China (maquila, food industry , textiles, etc.) and negotiation techniques.

    • Corporate Governance Trends

      Professor: Tomás Garicano
      The key question that will arise is whether, given the current economic crisis, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) was a fad or if it is a concept that will condition the way to manage all businesses in the future. It seeks to develop a framework of analysis to better understand cause - effect relationships and the dynamic forces that interact. The key objective is to provide the students with an aggregate model of all the influential forces, so that through the reflection of class discussions - that are based on their experiences and those of the students - a personal vision is reached that allows him to determine whether or not the overall trend - and that of his sector and company - is toward a "more sustainable world," and how fast this movement occurs.

    • Strategy and Leadership in the Context of Globalization

      Professor: Fernando D'Alessio
      Thinking strategically is to look at the long term of institutions, depending on the industrial sector where they operate, which demands a transformational leadership with strong moral and ethical principles so that the institutions can compete in this changing, multicultural and technologically connected world. The leadership-strategy pairing is crucial to the success of organizations, requiring them to project into the future with high probabilities of success. In "Strategy and Leadership in the Context of Globalization," the theories and models of leadership will be studied and how they have evolved over the last fifty years and how this leadership helps strategic management in the process of aligning the organization's internal capabilities with external demands of its surroundings to allocate required resources effectively. This is the basis for formulating and implementing strategies to achieve the objectives.

    • Scorecard for Senior Management

      Professor: Gonzalo Real
      Management Control is set as the basic system that permits senior management to guide the activities of the company towards achieving the previously established objectives with optimum utilization of resources. In this case, within the model of Balanced Scorecard (BSC), will work on the basis of four perspectives of results (financial, customer, processes and learning & growth), analyzing the basic concepts and methodologies for its implementation and its application in different types of businesses.

    • Management of Business Start-ups

      Professor: Manuel Bermejo
      The business environment today demands leaders with their own entrepreneurial abilities. Even for managers who do not own the company, today the entrepreneurial leader must have a global vision of company, identify business opportunities and innovate to implement the necessary strategic refocusing to a more dynamic, changing and global competitive environment than ever. Under these assumptions, this course offers students the opportunity to deepen and analyze all the keys of the process to undertake, independently of what takes place in an existing company or developed from a new, independent initiative.

    • Operations

      Professor: Luis Solis
      Over the past decade, the importance of Supply Chain Management model has grown in the field of senior management of companies as a result of the increased need for differentiation in the most competitive environments in a growing number of industrial sectors. Companies like Zara, Dell, Walmart, Cisco, Procter & Gamble among others have made the SCM model a strategy of competitiveness and sustainability. Therefore, it is intended that managers improve their understanding of the SCM model and the implications for its role in the definition of policies, values, infrastructure and incentives so that the probability of success is high.
