Business Model Innovation
The aim of this course is to enable students to better understand, decompose and analyze business or operational models in organizations. Students will work individually and in groups, studying, debating and evolving business models from a wide variety of industries and strategies. At the end of the course, students should be able to look at any organization and try to explain the connectedness of its actions through a business model and theorize novel approaches it could take or compare with what competition is doing. Students should be able to identify the business model as a characterizing trait of an organization.
