For advanced doctoral candidates and postdocs (all disciplines).
The goals of this introductory class to business administration are
three-fold: First, the participants shall acquire a basic knowledge of
selected key areas of business administration (i.e. business models,
strategic management, decision theory, financial accounting and
managerial accounting). Second, they shall understand how these
areas are not isolated but intimately connected to each other. Third,
they shall acquire an understanding of how this basic knowledge of
business administration can be applied to specific real-world settings.
Acquiring skills to transfer this knowledge is a key to furthering
the competencies of the participants regardless of whether or
not they will pursue an academic carrier after they have completed
their doctoral dissertation.
In this course, the idea of a ‘business model’ is used as a starting
point. A ‘business model’ is central to any firm because it is used
to pre-structure many activities of a firm. Therefore, topics like the
strategy of a firm, the ways in which a decision maker in a firm
decides and the way the firm accounts are often informed by a business
model. Thus, the topic ‘business model’ sets the stage for this
course because it signifies how the key areas of business administration
relate to each other.
The course uses interactive case study discussions, poster sessions,
role plays and video analysis. These more interactive elements complement
lectures given by the trainer.
Please note: This workshop is very similar to "BWL Kompakt", a workshop in german language that takes place this summer term. Please register for only one of these workshops!
