The entirety of the course strengthens the link between theory and practice and prepares students for employment in local and/or international projects.

EMEM 535: Managing Product and Service Development

How do companies ensure innovative ideas are transformed into a product or service? Irrespective of their size, location, number of employees, revenue margin, or industry segment, all companies transform their innovative strategies into real-world products/services. Some companies have well-defined transformation steps that they call product/service development process; others simply just do whatever it takes without organized planning. But in general, they all go through major iterative phases such as: discovery, definition, development, demonstration, qualification, deployment, and lifecycle management. Furthermore, there are factors that impact all these phases such as: source of funding, people relations, supply chain, design/development tools, time constraints, internal/external regulations, etc. Adequate management of these factors enables the development process to be executed on time and on budget in order to meet customer needs and stakeholders' expectations. This course intends to provide an understanding of the product and service development process elements and the factors influencing the execution of the process.

The contents of the course include both Production Management and Service Management.

EMEM 543: Quality and Lean Management

The terms Quality and Lean are recognized as the key for the companies which want to satisfy their customer and efficiently manage their resources. The aim of Quality Management is to produce more reliable products and services by decreasing the variability. And the aim of Lean, on the other hand, is to increase the productivity by value creation and elimination of waste. The objective of this course is to teach students the definition of both quality and lean with differences and similarities and then implementation of them in production and service industries. This course covers the general concepts, and principles of quality management and lean production such as customer focus, value creation, process management, value stream mapping, waste removal, visual management, and continuous improvement.

EMEM 509: Systems Engineering

This course explores a framework encapsulating the entire systems engineering discipline and addresses the topics of systems engineering relevant to all professions associated with the complex human-made systems. The course identifies methods for thinking about large, complex problems as an integrated whole, capturing the problem and documenting it systematically; then decomposing the problem into smaller units that can be designed, built, and integrated to achieve the desired result.

EMEM 510: Accounting

The course covers the fundamental principles of financial and managerial accounting. The principal objective of the course is to develop your ability to read, understand, and use corporate accounting information. To achieve this objective, the course introduces the basics of financial reporting (including both the U.S. and international standards) to information users outside of the firm—as well as selected topics on the internal (i.e., managerial), uses of accounting information. Because the course takes the perspective of a user of the accounting information, it focuses on the concepts relevant to decision makers—such as managers, current and prospective investors, creditors, customers, suppliers, and regulators.

In order to understand how accounting reports reflect the underlying economics of the firm and to use them in making forecasts, you should know the basics of record keeping, have a good grasp of the effects of typical business transactions on the accounting statements, and understand the implications of generic business strategies (e.g., product differentiation) for the firm’s financial reports. We will also study the financial reporting environment, the role of the standard-setting bodies and other key players, and the desirable properties of accounting information (e.g., relevance and reliability).

The course focuses on how economic events and transactions are reflected in the firm’s accounting system as financial and non-financial information, how this information is processed and communicated to the users. To be informed users, you should understand the nature of the decisions at hand; accordingly, the course will draw on the insights from microeconomics, decision analysis, operations management, and finance.

EMEM 514: Finance

This course examines important issues in corporate finance from the perspective of financial managers who are responsible for making a significant investment and financing decisions. The course covers both financial tools and applications. The first part of the course will focus on mastering the tools that lay beneath all modern financial decision making. Broadly speaking, this involves discounted cash flow analysis that appropriately takes into account taxes, as well as equilibrium risk and return tradeoffs faced by participants in capital markets. The second half of the course explores contemporary issues that will be of importance to anyone seeking a job in the financial markets industry. A wide range of topics will be covered, such as venture capital, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, and financial distress.

While the course is not designed to dwell on abstraction, the basic theoretical underpinnings of the various topics are a prerequisite to competitive analysis. An emphasis is placed on the development of problem-solving skills based on a good understanding of the business environment as opposed to pure theorizing or mindless numbers exercises. Because of the practical importance of the material and as an illustration of the relevant theory, students will discuss examples and cases.

EMEM 517: Marketing

The course will provide you with a systematic framework for understanding marketing management and practice. The classes will combine the theoretical and practical part following an open discussion format. The course puts emphasis on how to (1) assess marketing opportunities by analyzing customers, competitors, and their own company (the 3 C's), and (2) design effective marketing programs via selecting appropriate strategies for pricing, promotion, place, and product (the 4 P's). Accordingly, this course is organized around these three C's and four P's. While most course sessions emphasize one of these topics, please note that the goal of this course is to prepare you to create a marketing strategy that concurrently addresses all of these points.

EMEM 511: Business Strategy

This course deals with the work and understanding of strategic management. The course adopts the perspective of managers within the corporation, business, division, plant, or other operating units who must align their individual actions and responsibilities with the overall objectives of the firm. During the course, students will focus on the perspectives and skills required to diagnose and find realistic solutions for critical problems in complex business situations. The course deals with issues of both managerial effectiveness and business efficiency-emphasizing "doing the right things" as well as "doing things right," while avoiding falling into the trap of doing the wrong things really well. This course will teach strategic skills and techniques that can be used to analyze any situation in any environment. Students will learn how to analyze a case end-to-end and recommend an appropriate course of action. Prerequisites: Finance and Accounting

EMEM 516: Management of Organizations

The purpose of this course is to prepare the student to be an effective leader and manager of others regardless of career path and to be a good analyst of how best to organize people. The course will focus on two broad sets of questions. First, what principles can one draw on to analyze and improve performance in organizations? How can a manager exert influence for positive results at any level of an organization? How can the manager maintain high ethical standards? Students will examine principles for designing incentive systems, motivating employees, running effective teams, making good decisions, harnessing diversity, and organizing the distribution of work. The second set of questions concerns what an individual needs to do to be an effective leader. What can the graduate contribute to his/her firm and why should others respect and listen to him/her? Students will be challenged to reflect on their own personal strengths and weaknesses and to develop specific strategies for making a difference in any organization

EMEM 512: Leading Change

 The primary objective of this course is to acquire knowledge and gain an understanding of the basic principles associated with effectively leading change initiatives in organizations. Students will be introduced to the theories, concepts and practices of managing change, whether planned, incremental and localized, or revolutionary, under conditions of stability or crisis, and system-wide. In effect, change theories and contemporary practices will be examined at the individual, group/departmental and organizational levels. Beyond studying the causes and consequences of change, and the advantages/disadvantages of leading change from the top as opposed to bottom-up change, we will also investigate potential sources of resistance to change and strategies for overcoming them.

A second objective is to contribute to the development of the professional and clinical skills of students as change agents through intensive study and case analyses. The perspective taken is that of the responsible leader and the role he or she can and should play with respect to understanding and managing context, content, and process. More specifically, through intensive case analyses, we will study where and under what conditions the need for change is called for (context), what form or type of change is required (content), how change can be successfully implemented or managed (process), and competencies development or key success factors for those leading or managing change program or initiatives in organizations.

EMEM 513: Entrepreneurship

The focus of this course is the successful creation and early execution of a new venture. The course concentrates on new enterprises based on substantial innovations with potential for high growth and funding by venture capitalists. The course covers the topics of industry entry, new firm formation, the advantages and disadvantages of small firm size for technological competition, achieving and sustaining competitive advantage within industries, and patterns of technology and industry evolution and associated windows of opportunity for entry. In the first part of the course, students will concentrate on opportunity evaluation and business plan development. Then, in the second part of the course students will explore the strategic challenges of managing growth and realizing value. The psychology of entrepreneurs and how that might affect the quality of their decisions will also be considered.

EMEM 545: Business Communication

This course presents competent communication as a critical component for personal career and organizational success. We will work to understand the foundation of competent communication in the business world as well as to assess and improve our own verbal and written communication to be more effective, clear, appropriately assertive and based in foundations of personal integrity and leadership. Students will practice developing and delivering presentations, using appropriate and effective visual support, which will demonstrate relevance and benefits to audiences at varying levels or expertise and interest.

Students will also practice drafting and editing succinct, clear, readable written business documents which create effective and memorable messages.


The capstone project is an end-of-program assessment exercise designed to ensure that the graduates of the program have successfully met all their program learning objectives. The capstone project is thus used in MEM primarily for summative purposes. The project culminates in a team report (capstone project) that is publicly defended. Submission of a CP report and completion of this 16 ECTS module with a letter grade is a graduation requirement for MEM.

The CP provides an opportunity for the students to plan and execute a major applied project and thus demonstrate mastery of the technical and managerial skills required in their chosen profession. The CP is a unique exercise and successful completion in the allotted timeframe depends on prior preparation, careful time management and strict adherence to project timelines.
