Motivation: The challenge and the dilemma of strategic management
What is strategy? The answer to this question varies among different schools of strategy studies. However, it is generally agreed that the firm’s strategy, as a whole, is essentially of an integrative nature and does not break into parts that can be separately addressed. Yet, in an individual managerial situation, the manager must focus on the specific strategic theme of the situation as if it were a separable part of the whole strategy. How does the manager comprehend the whole of the strategy if it is not a collection of parts? How does the manager successfully complete a specific strategic task if it is an inseparable part of the whole? Clearly, the dilemma to manage here is to maintain the undisturbed focus on the part while developing a broader picture of the whole.

Learning Objectives
This course is an introduction on the fundamentals of strategic management. It introduces the basic tools, concepts and frameworks useful in conceiving a firm’s strategy as an irreducible whole. Throughout the course, the essential task of students is to develop the ability to take an integrative perspective when making a decision in a specific business situation.

Role andPurposes

This course contributes to the achievement of 3 learning goals (LG) mentioned below. For the purpose of accomplishment of these objectives, this course provides basic understandings and skills in the Organizational Behavior (OB) field. We learn how we can effectively manage modern organizations and “people” inside. Organizations we deal with are profit-seeking corporations, public agencies, and all other forms of non-profit bodies, given they consider their activities as work, not hobby or mere socializing. What kind of knowledge and skills are required to manage an organization, which is consisted of a few, or thousands, of people? First, we need to be able to explain behaviors of various individuals and groups—which are considered as complex of individuals—in orderly way. Next, we need to be able to analyze and predict the individual and group behaviors. Only after overcoming these challenges we will be capable of managing, or leading, the entire organization.
The terms such as management or leadership should be used carefully, since they evoke very diverse and heterogeneous implications among people. As we proceed with the classes, we will gradually clarify what we mean by managing and leading organization, under the context of modern society.

Course Learning Goals

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Demonstrate understanding of leadership concepts and practices (LO3-1)
(a) Engagement in active listening and conduct of 2-way, or multilateral conversation
(b) Making constructive suggestions to deepen the group discussion
(c) Exercising necessary leadership or followership behavior in the group discussion when needed

Course Description

Upon successful completion of this course, you will have comprehensive understandings about the nature of working people’s mind, the various phenomena which occurs under the situation of group work, and the mechanism of organizational structure. Also, you will be better prepared to lead your organization, either small or large, under solid foundations of OB theories and concepts. Cases are designed so that you will be gradually exposed to various simulated experiences which serve as anchors of your managerial behaviors in the future career.
Good understanding of Organizational Behavior is essential for ANY roles you assume upon graduation, as far as you work with other people. Being equipped with OB knowledge, you will be more capable of handling “people-related” issues in organizations.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course Description and Learning Objectives:
The main purpose of this course is to understand concepts, principles, and tools for the analysis and valuation of derivative securities such as Forwards, Futures, Swaps, and Options, which are being applied in modern corporate finance, investments, and risk management for financial institutions and enterprises. Students also will learn the application of these derivatives for financial and enterprise risk management and decision making.
Career relevance:
The basic knowledge of derivatives is necessary to understand modern finance and modern corporate management in both financial and non-financial institutions. The knowledge would be useful for managers of financial product development, fund managers, and analysts in financial institutions. The knowledge would also be useful for financial officers and risk management officers in various enterprises. Application of derivatives such as real options is also useful for managers who are decision makers. You will find how the tools and concepts are useful more broadly in finance and corporate management.
Course Context or Rationalization:
Knowledge and skills related to derivative securities would allow you to pursue many goals, which cannot be achieved only through the study of traditional securities, in investments, risk management, and management of corporations. In other words, you will extend your
knowledge of corporate finance, investments, and portfolio management into the advanced stage. This course requires basic knowledge of traditional securities such as stocks and bonds, and corporate finance, although there is no specific prerequisite course. Additionally, the derivatives market aims to provide the basic knowledge and skill in order to understand Debt Security Market (FIN4300) and Risk Management (FIN4200). Securitization, which will be taught 2 in Debt Security Market, is a sophisticated type of derivatives. Also derivatives are widely used in order to achieve both financial and enterprise risk management. Understanding the pricing of derivatives also helps to understand the insurance pricing.
Delivery methods:
Course materials consist of cases, book chapters, and various articles, exercise problem sets and homework assignments, and a final examination at the end of the term. The final is a take-home examination. Most course work is quantitative. The level of students understanding will be checked by means of case analysis, assignments, and scheduled presentations throughout the term. Full preparation and attendance are both required for all of the scheduled sessions in this course. All students are expected to be actively involved in class discussion, especially, in case discussion.
