The use and proliferation of digital technologies have created drastic shifts in the way in which organizations buy and sell goods and services, and integrate their supply chain and delivery systems.

This course combines theories and frameworks with practical approaches to provide students with the skills required to help companies identify business opportunities, find appropriate information related technologies, and lead adoption efforts to success. Thus, it is not a technical course; rather, it addresses the question: why and how should these new digital technologies be leveraged to shape and support strategic and entrepreneurial initiatives in the global competitive landscape.

Did you ever wonder: How does a luxury brand like Dior keep innovating in the face of so many copycat fashion houses? What is the importance of Michelin ratings for restaurants? What does the classification of a bottle of wine say about its quality? These are some of the questions participants will delve into in this course.

Marketing The Right Price
The course Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management focuses on how a firm should set and update pricing and product availability decisions in order to maximize its profitability. The adoption of Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management has transformed the transportation and hospitality industries, and is increasingly important in retail, telecommunications, entertainment, financial services, health care and manufacturing. Dynamic Pricing is based on a price discrimination consisting in offering either the same product at different prices (seats on an airline for instance) or similar products at different prices (small, medium, tall cup of coffee). These sophisticated marketing practices require advanced market segmentation, and some means to discourage discount customers from becoming resellers and, by extension, competitors. Revenue Management derives its justification in a segmentation based on the purchasing power of consumers, their specific characteristics as regards price elasticity, and time sensitivity. The main objective of Revenue Management is the adjustment by the price, i.e. managing the quantitative supply allocated to each segment according to its price sensitivity through simultaneous action on tariffs and available capacity.

This unit examines tourism marketing in the context of destinations, which are a fundamental pillars of the global travel industry. Most tourism activities take place at destinations, which are now the biggest travel brands. The majority of governments now fund a destination marketing organization (DMO) to enhance competitiveness in global markets where travelers are spoilt for choice of places that offer similar benefits. The success of individual tourism businesses is reliant to some extent on the competitiveness of their destination. Therefore the unit analyses the tourism macro environment, and the role of the DMO in developing and coordinating a holistic destination marketing plan that encourages collaboration between the many stakeholders for the wider benefit of the community. This course explores how marketing theories can be applied to tourism destinations and small businesses.

Massive collections of data are created by businesses, governments, and individuals as a by-product of their activity. Therefore, decision-makers and systems depend on intelligent technology to analyze data systematically to improve decision-making. In this course, our focus is on the ability to understand and translate business challenges into data mining problems and on examining how data analysis technologies can be used to improve decision-making. Therefore, we will emphasize heavily on students obtaining hands-on experience in implementing a range of commonly used data mining techniques by using «R», the widely used programming language, on business analytic problems. We will study the fundamental principles and techniques of data mining, and we will examine real-world examples and cases to place data-mining techniques in context, to develop data-analytic thinking, and to illustrate that proper application is as much an art as it is a science.

Gobernanza Y Conservacion Feb 21
Este es un curso de educación experiencial diseñado para permitir a los estudiantes aprender de primera mano el rol que tienen las Áreas Marinas Protegidas (AMP) como estrategia de conservación. En este contexto, esta clase expone a los estudiantes a diferentes nociones de lo que constituye la “conservación” y a diferentes acercamientos desde la ciencia y las políticas públicas al estudio de la gobernanza y gestión de Áreas Marinas Protegidas. Para lograr esto, la clase crea las condiciones necesarias para que los estudiantes discutan literatura académica relevante e interactúen directamente con individuos relacionados con el Parque Nacional Natural Uramba. La clase dará la oportunidad para que los estudiantes confronten sus propias visiones de mundo con aquellas de las comunidades costeras que se visitarán. El objetivo de esta confrontación es entender que la existencia de estos puntos de vista distintos es un reto para la práctica de la conservación marina. Frecuentemente, las discusiones más enriquecedoras suceden en los lugares más informales, como alrededor de la cena en una salida de campo. Estos contextos también favorecen la discusión de, entre otros,: ¿qué se conserva? ¿por qué? ¿quién lo decide? ¿Cuál es el rol de los pescadores en el monitoreo biológico para la conservación de las AMPs? ¿Cuál es el rol del conocimiento científico biológico comparado con la sabiduría local y tradicional de los pescadores y habitantes que han vivido en la zona por muchos años?

The digital & social media marketing module is developed to appreciate the importance of the ever-evolving digital landscape, and for understanding how to develop skills to improve digital marketing effectiveness. Social media and new mobile technologies are now ubiquitous, having infiltrated every aspect of our life. Digital technologies are not mere tools to achieve traditional business and marketing goals; they should be considered as part of a paradigm shift, with an increasing emphasis on social interaction with consumers enabling co-creation, cooperation and collaboration. Digital Marketing is about a cultural change in the marketing manager’s way of viewing consumers and of applying marketing strategies and tools with the new technologies being developed. This module provides awareness of the nature of the challenges and opportunities within the digital environment and outlines the skills and tools required to support and enhance marketing activities. The module draws on recent researches in digital marketing as well as on interviews with CEOs and practitioners and other types of publications (e.g. academic books, magazines, reports and newspaper articles). This module has a practical approach to the topic in that it discusses the ‘how to’ of social media and how these tools may contribute to brand loyalty, brand image, customer satisfaction, customer acquisition and the like. The module has a strong focus on social media and underlines the importance of electronic word of mouth and how it is increasingly important to control and monitor what is being said about a company, brand or organization in consumer-to-consumer interactions. In addition, the importance of effective measurement techniques enables an understanding of the return on investment from social media & digital marketing activities.

This course aims at providing an understanding of the recent banking crises as of the consequences on the new banking regulation and supervision environment. This is a very complex topic since banking and financial system greatly influences the state of the economy – as the slow economic recovery of the major industrial countries proves – and companies’ financing strategy. Financial intermediation underwent through major changes over the past 30 years because of financial deregulation and globalization. Financial intermediaries were nationally-based and heavily protected by their government indirectly (anglo-saxon style) or directly (many Europeans banks were still state-owned until recently). Despite deregulation and disintermediation financial institutions still represent a fair share of the economic activity, their traditional business having shifted over the years from loans provider to financial services providers that might have been at the root of the current crisis.
