Today’s managers are faced with responsibilities for functional and staff management, as well as developing strategies for growth, leading teams, and staying competitive in evolving industries and markets globally. The range of knowledge and skills required by corporate managers requires the breadth of readily applicable concepts present in this course series.

Each course acts as a refresher or a way to expand beyond the concepts taught in many MBA programs. Eric and Joe provide a means for managers to reassess and extend their knowledge in the context of their professional experience, and to review the major concepts and put them into a cohesive business strategy.

This course looks at the development of several fields of study which are relevant for finance managers in the 21st century:  managing nonprofits, cognitive bias and decision-making, marketing, and the application of complex systems thinking to social and business contexts. 

This course is part of a series of courses:

Applied Executive Ed: Foundations of Business Strategy 
Applied Executive Ed: Entrepreneurship 
Applied Executive Ed: The Essence of Leadership  
Applied Executive Ed: Building Effective Organizations 
Applied Executive Ed: International Business 
Applied Executive Ed: Innovation 
Applied Executive Ed: An Introduction to Models of Corporate Finance 
Applied Executive Ed: Emerging Topics in Management (This Course)

Learning Objectives

We expect students to be able to describe:

  • The growth in the social impact of nonprofit organizations
  • Primary ways that people have limits on their ability to rationally make decisions
  • How we can guard against the most common cognitive biases to make better management decisions
  • The role of marketing in a corporation's strategy
  • How to apply complex systems thinking to social and business environments, to understand phenomena which do not lend themselves to standard tools of financial or economic analysis.
