  5. 5. Some Course Plans Strategic Management: Lesson Plan The focus of the Strategic Management course is on how to develop effective business corporate strategies and how to implement these strategies in an organizational context. It analyses factors going into formulation of enterprise strategy by drawing our attention to the determination of long term objectives and goals through identification of opportunities and threats in the environment, critical appraisal of resources within an enterprise and the personal goals and aspirations of managers. This strategic intent must be supported by appropriate resource commitment so as to build and strengthen source of competitive advantage. Thirdly, this long-term strategic orientation must be counter balanced with a set of management processes that create flexibility and entrepreneurship, so that the organization can not only cope with increasing environment volatility, but can engineer and exploit changes to its own advantage. Finally, the management must build the multi dimensional organizational capability that is required to cope with the ambiguity and complexity that is generated by its own efforts to achieve diverse and often conflicting goals simultaneously with emphasis on Innovation strategy; Innovation and Enterprise Growth; Competitive strategy; Corporate re-structuring & transformation; Competitive strategy; Corporate re-structuring & transformation; Corporate governance; International management; International Business: Lesson Plan The field of international business, as an academic discipline, is broad and diffuse. That there are divergent views on what a course in international business should contain is amply borne by a cursory glance at the various books on the subject. Broadly speaking, there seem to be two strands of thought: one emphasizes the international trade and investment theories, international economics, international environment and its scanning, international or multilateral institutions, etc.; the other strand concentrates on managerial, strategic and operational issues in managing international business. In designing the course, I realized that some understanding of international economic environment, trade and investment theories and global institutions is necessary to serve as a background for the formulation of business plans. The major focus of the course however is on managerial issues and decision-making, tools of international management and conflict resolution and management practices of multinational corporations. Marketing Management: Lesson Plan This Lesson Plan is based on the theory behind the worlds of marketing and management, such as the 5P‟s standing for product, people, price, place and promotion. International Marketing: Lesson Plan The phenomena of globalization which has progressed from buzzword to reality emphasis had been laid down on the multinational corporations as well as on the transnational corporations. This course has been prepared in response to the continuous rapid changes in international marketing and the new challenges that are arising, including increased coverage of cultural differences, logistics, supply chain management, retailing and the impact of internet on international marketing and exports. General Management: Lesson Plan This module provides you with a solid theoretical and practical knowledge about the fundamentals of management and its past, present and future Entrepreneurship: Lesson Plan The twenty-first century has dawned with entrepreneurship as a major force shaping the global economy. The future growth of this economy lies in the hands of men and women committed to achieving success through innovative customer-focused new products and services. At the heart of this global movement are entrepreneurs who demonstrate their willingness to assume the risks associated with creating new business ventures. Those who possess the spirit of entrepreneurial leadership have led, and will continue to lead, the economic revolution that has proved repeatedly to raise the standard of living for people everywhere. This course introduces you to the processes of new venture creation and the critical knowledge you need to manage your business once it is formed with emphasis on Innovation strategy; Innovation and Enterprise Growth. Human Resource Management (HRM): Lesson Plan This Lesson Plan is to present a comprehensive treatment of concepts, principles, functions and techniques of human resource management in the context of the socio-economic, technological and political-legal environment of modern organizations. Business Communication: Lesson Plan This module provides you with a solid theoretical and practical knowledge Communication foundation based on communication at work; communicating in teams; communicating across culture, the writing process, business correspondence, reports and proposals with a thrust on diversity and multiculturalism, ethics and technology.
