Inhalte der LV

The first day of the course are designed as introduction lectures providing fundamental tools and skills essential for the consecutive modules and assignments.

After this introduction, students (organised in four teams of five) have to combine their knowledge of various economic fields and compete in diverse challenges occurring in the life cycle of a corporation.

Each of the modules consists of two parts:

  • First, there will be a full session of theoretical input and the initial setting of the respective assignment.
  • Second, student teams will have to apply those inputs to the given challenge and defend it in various ways in another session.

Students will also have the possibility to review their team members, so that free-riding can be avoided.

Modules will cover an intergrated performance measurement tool for an incumbent company, a challenge for an existing young company, a multidimensional quantitative scenario analysis for a real stock exchange-listed corporation, and a restructuring challenge.

In addition, students will master assignments which have to be prepared in between the core modules.

More detailed information will be provided during the introductory session.
