363-0389-00LTechnology and Innovation Management Information W3 KP2GS. Brusoni
KurzbeschreibungThis course focuses on the analysis of innovation as a pervasive process that cut across organizational and functional boundaries. It looks at the sources of innovation, at the tools and techniques that organizations deploy to routinely innovate, and the strategic implications of technical change.
LernzielThis course intends to enable all students to:

- understand the core concepts necessary to analyze how innovation happens

- master the most common methods and tools organizations deploy to innovate

- develop the ability to critically evaluate the innovation process, and act upon the main obstacles to innovation
InhaltThis course looks at technology and innovation management as a process. Continuously, organizations are faced with a fundamental decision: they have to allocate resources between well-known tasks that reliably generate positive results; or explore new ways of doing things, new technologies, products and services. The latter is a high risk choice. Its rewards can be high, but the chances of success are small.
How do firms organize to take these decisions? What kind of management skills are necessary to take them? What kind of tools and methods are deployed to sustain managerial decision-making in highly volatile environments? These are the central questions on which this course focuses, relying on a combination of lectures, case-based discussion, guest speakers, simulations and group work.

363-0503-00LPrinciples of Microeconomics
GESS (Science in Perspective): Suitable for Master students.
Bachelor students should take the course ‚Einführung in die Mikroökonomie (363-1109-00L)‘.
W3 KP2GM. Filippini
KurzbeschreibungThe course introduces basic principles, problems and approaches of microeconomics. This provides them with reflective and contextual knowledge on how societies use scarce resources to produce goods and services and distribute them among themselves.
LernzielThe learning objectives of the course are:

(1) Students must be able to discuss basic principles, problems and approaches in microeconomics. (2) Students can analyse and explain simple economic principles in a market using supply and demand graphs. (3) Students can contrast different market structures and describe firm and consumer behaviour. (4) Students can identify market failures such as externalities related to market activities and illustrate how these affect the economy as a whole. (5) Students can also recognize behavioural failures within a market and discuss basic concepts related to behavioural economics. (6) Students can apply simple mathematical treatment of some basic concepts and can solve utility maximisation and cost minimisation problems.
SkriptLecture notes, exercises and reference material can be downloaded from Moodle.
