Provide students with an understanding of the mechanics of the inner workings of a company, and in particular on how to be an effective leader of that organization. What will be discussed will not relate to functional matters ("how to prepare a business plan" or "what are the most relevant marketing levers"), but rather on what processes and methodologies need to be in place, for the company as a whole to be in a condition to obtain the desired level of financial performance. It is about how making things happen, in particular from the position of the leader of that organization.

At the end of the course, students should be able to read and assess the economic and financial performance of a company. And likewise, they should be capable to understand what are the management and business levers that led to that type of performance. Once students complete the transition into the professional world, they will already have a base upon which to build, as to how a company (or a smaller organizational unit) should be run, and as to what business decisions should be made to reach success.
