    Core Courses

    COR1-GB.1302 Leadership in Organizations (3)
    Organizations of all types face significant challenges. These include the difficulty of coping with highly dynamic business environments, the complexity of managing global enterprises, how to shape a healthy corporate culture, managing politics and conflict between individuals and organizational units, motivating a highly mobile and every changing workforce, managing and harnessing intellectual capital, and so on. Such challenges and how organizational leaders can deal with them are the subject of this course.


    The course has two major components. The first is "macro" in nature. It focuses on organizational level issues, such as how an organization should be designed to best achieve its goals, and how culture and control affect organizational dynamics. The second part is more "micro" in nature. It focuses on employee-related challenges, such as how to get things done in politically sensitive environments, evaluate and reward people, and manage teams. The macro component is concerned with overall organizational performance, while the micro component is concerned with managing individual and group effectiveness. And leadership is the linking pin that connects these two.


    This course will introduce you to central theories and frameworks in management and organizational behavior, and will help you to understand how to apply those theories and frameworks to understand and address organizational challenges and problems. An understanding of organizations and their management is important for anyone who plans to work within an organization, as career success hinges on one's ability to accurately read and respond to the organizational context within which one operates. The course will also give you an opportunity to reflect on the skills that are required for being a better manager and leader.

    COR1-GB.1306 Financial Accounting and Reporting (3)
    Accounting reports are an important means of communication with investors. This course focuses on the development, analysis and use of these reports. It provides an understanding of what these reports contain, what assumptions and concepts accountants use to prepare them, and why they use those assumptions and concepts.

    The course uses simple examples to provide students with a clear understanding of accounting concepts. It stresses the ability to apply these concepts to real world cases, which by their very nature are complex and ambiguous. In addition to text-oriented materials, the classes also include cases so that students can discuss applications of basic concepts, actual financial reports, and articles from newspapers. In addition to traditional introductory topics other topics may include mergers and acquisitions, purchase and pooling, free cash flow and financial statement analysis.

    FINC-GB.3129 Behaviorial and Experimental Finance (1.5)
    Finance theory has long relied on a descriptively sparse model of behavior based on the premise that investors and managers are rational. Another critical assumption is that misjudgments by investors and managers are penalized swiftly in competitive markets. In recent years, both assumptions have been questioned as the standard model fails to account for various aspects of actual markets.
    Behavioral finance, which allows that investors and managers are not always rational and may make systematic errors of judgment that affect market prices, has emerged as a credible alternative to the standard model. This course provides an exposition of the insights and implications of behavioral finance theory, showing how it can explain otherwise puzzling features of asset prices and corporate finance. Notwithstanding the inroads of the new theory, the standard model retains strong support amongst many academics&practitioners who make criticisms of behavioral finance that deserve serious consideration. An important challenge that we will address in this course is identifying the respective domains of each perspective and whether there are tradable opportunities.

    FINC-GB.3186 Project Finance and Infrastructure Investment (1.5)
    Project finance is used to finance billions of dollars of capital-intensive projects annually. This increasingly critical financial technique relies on the cash flows of a specific project, not the cash flows of a corporation or third party guarantor, to service debt and provide investor returns. Not all projects can support project financing. Project finance is a specialized financial tool requiring both proper structuring and risk mitigation.

    The purpose of the course is to understand what project finance is, why it is used, and how it is used. Students will learn what the necessary elements are that support the use of project finance to include contractual agreements, technology, sponsors, risk identification and mitigation, sources of capital, financial structuring, the use of financial modeling, accounting considerations, and tax considerations.

    MGMT-GB.2159 Collaboration, Conflict, and Negotiation (1.5)
    Successful managers know how to collaborate with other people effectively and how to resolve conflicts constructively. The goal of this course is to teach students the fundamentals of managing collaboration and conflict in one-on-one and small group settings. Our objective is to enhance students' interpersonal skills at their jobs. Drawing from the latest findings in managerial psychology, we cover the fundamentals of effective negotiation, communication, and persuasion. Special topics include getting buy-in, coping with resistance, and building coalitions.

    This course exposes students to the unique challenges of managing the growth of small businesses. It concentrates on building the company issues rather than start-up issues, although some cases and lectures explore start-up as well. Included are studies of family businesses that have acute growth issues because of succession and family dynamics. It is designed for students interested in understanding the opportunities and problems involved in the management or operation of their own business; and it is also aimed at students considering employment in a small or midsized firm. The differences between small firms and large organizations, management needs, practices, and financial resources are examined.

    MGMT-GB.2353 Managing Change (3)
    Contemporary business environments contain challenges that demand an increasing pace, volume, and complexity of organizational changes. Most organizations, whether they are entrepreneurial start-ups or long-established Fortune 500 firms, find that they must change or wither. This course is geared toward deepening students' understanding of the challenges, techniques, and burdens associated with initiating and implementing major change in an organization. The objective is to prepare managers, or their consultants and advisers, to meet the challenges of organizational change successfully. As such, the course is especially useful for students who plan careers in management consulting, general management (whether in line or staff positions), and entrepreneurship or corporate venturing.

    This course is meant for those who wish to better understand and further develop their innate potential and propensity to lead others. As you rise in your career, you will need multiple and often conflicting constituencies on board to follow your vision. But if you don't lead, others will not follow. This course will help you toward honing some of the essential self-reflective skills you need to give form and substance to such vision. It will also be of value to those who wish to have a broad intellectual understanding of the context of leading and the content of leadership.

    This course develops student skills at diagnosing organizations and developing prescriptions to improve their effectiveness. It is appropriate for those interested in organizational performance from a managerial or external perspective, e.g., management consultants, investment bankers, and financial analysts. It examines organizations' attempts to adapt as open systems in a competitive environment. We consider the major factors influencing organization design, e.g., strategy, environment, and technology. Then we analyze the major internal processes affecting organizational performance, e.g., control systems, politics, and conflict. Next, we probe how organizations can improve their ability to adapt in increasingly dynamic environments. The course includes domestic and international examples. The main learning methods are case analyses and a study of the organizations of the central competitors in an in-dustry or industries that the class chooses. Particular emphasis is placed on organizational-level problems facing senior management.

    MGMT-GB.2383 STRATEGIC TALENT MANGMENT (3)
    This course will explore the issues and strategies surrounding the key human capital issues facing organizations and their leaders in today's global business environment. This area of study is increasingly important as organizations seek to differentiate themselves in the marketplace through the contributions of their global teams. In addition, organizations in the future will increasingly sell more information and services, and fewer traditional "products", and so the management of this human asset becomes even more critical.

    Objectives include:
    - Explanation of the overall theoretical framework for Human Capital Management and their practices in the business environment
    - Relate the practices and impact of different areas of HCM to each other and their implications for organizational and employee needs
    - Discussion of how the HR or HCM function adds value to the organization and is leveraged by key line leaders to achieve their goals

    The objectives noted above will be accomplished via exposure to the various course content, including case studies, articles, guest speakers, team projects and lectures.

    MGMT-GB.3323 Game Theory (3)
    Game theory studies competitive and cooperative behavior in strategic environments, where the fortunes of several players are intertwined. It provides methods for identifying optimal strategies and predicting the outcome of strategic interactions. The field of game theory began around 1900 when mathematicians began asking whether there were optimal strategies for parlor games such as chess and poker, and, if so, what these strategies might look like. The first comprehensive formulation of the subject came in 1944, with the publication of the book Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by famous mathematician John von Neumann and eminent economist Oskar Morgenstern. As its title indicates, this book also marked the beginning of the application of game theory to economics. Since then, game theory has been applied to many other fields, including political science, military strategy, law, computer science, and biology, among other areas. In 1994, three pioneers in game theory were awarded a Nobel Prize, marking the&#8216arrival' of the field. In 2005, two other prominent researchers in game theory were awarded a Nobel Prize. Among the other applications, game theory today is finding its way into the world of business. (Pick up a business magazine or book and there is a good chance that it will use some game-theory jargon such as zero-sum game, Prisoner's Dilemma, win-win game, etc.). As well as learning the underlying theory in the course, we'll be looking at how game theory can indeed be applied to business.

    This course considers the way political processes and power structures influence decisions and choices made within and by organizations. It analyzes the sources, distribution, and use of influence in relation to resource allocation, organizational change and performance, management succession, procedural justice, policy formulation, and social movements within organizations. It develops skills in diagnosing and using power and politics in organizational settings. A basic assumption underlying the course is that managers need well-developed skills in acquiring and exercising power to be effective. The course is designed to (1) improve students' capacity to diagnose organizational issues in terms of their political dimensions and (2) enhance their effectiveness in their jobs and careers as a result of that improved capacity.

    MKTG-GB.2128 Entrepreneurial Selling (1.5)
    The goal of Entrepreneurial Selling is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that entrepreneurs - and nearly all other business executives - need to win customers and grow their business. We will use the consultative selling model to understand the process of selling, discovery of and alignment with customer's needs, presentations of solutions, overcoming objections, and gaining agreement. Rather than pigeonholing selling as "something done by those sales types", we look at it as providing solutions to customer's problems.


    Selling is unique in that everyone does it. In business, we sell our products, proposals, IPOs, projects, budgets, and anything else that someone else has to approve. In life, we buy cars and houses (buying and selling are two sides of the same coin), interview for jobs, propose marriage, and many other things that someone else has to say OK to. In short, selling is a fundamental life skill.


    The course is primarily an interactive discussion including debates, case discussions, and many small group, "skills drills" to apply the concepts and methods. In addition to learning the aspects of contemporary selling as it applies to their chosen careers, students will also gain a better appreciation of this important - and often misunderstood - aspect of an organization.


    The course is focused on professional, business-to-business (B2B) sales issues and sales management. We frequently draw on our own experiences as consumers (B2C) as a basis for developing perspectives, insights, and understanding of B2B sales themes.

    MKTG-GB.2129 Sales Management (1.5)
    The goal of the Sales Management course is to examine the elements of an effective sales force as a key component of the organization's total marketing effort. The course will extend student's understanding of marketing's reach and potential impact in achieving its overarching goals. Course objectives include understanding the sales process, the relationship between sales and marketing, sales force structure, customer relationship management (CRM), use of technology to improve sales force effectiveness, and issues in recruiting, selecting, training, motivating, compensating and retaining salespeople. Students learn to apply the discussion topics through an interactive project worked on throughout the course.

    The course is primarily an interactive discussion including debates, cases, and multiple opportunities to apply the theories that are discussed. A critical element of the class is a group project simulating a typical&#8230 though complex&#8230 sales management situation; the project includes a written paper with the option for a presentation to the class with verbal defense.

    The course is focused on professional, business-to-business (B2B) sales issues and sales management. We frequently draw on our own experiences as consumers (B2C) as a basis for developing perspectives, insights, and understanding of B2B sales themes.

    Technological markets, high-technology innovations, and durable products of hi-tech nature are all characterized by growth patterns that are not only different from one market to the next but also contain a high degree of uncertainty. Such chaotic phenomena are difficult to investigate and present a challenge for forecasting market potentials and market shares.


    In this course we will examine the structure and growth patterns of such markets. We will witness the unbearable slowness of new product growth, understand why main market consumers aren't impressed with early market technophiles, breathlessly watch the bandwagon wheezing by, diligently compute the value of the customers of E*Trade and Ameritrade, and wistfully remember products such as WordPerfect, Lotus 123 and floppy discs.

    MKTG-GB.2370 New Product Development (3)
    New products and services are vital to the success of all companies. However, innovation is risky and most new products fail in the marketplace. Thus, expertise in the design and marketing of new products is a critical skill for all managers, inside and outside of the marketing department. In this course, we first focus on the tools and techniques associated with analyzing market opportunities and then focus on designing, testing, and introducing new products and services. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches are covered. In particular, the course covers the new product development process, market entry strategies, how to generate new product ideas, mapping customer perceptions, segmentation, product positioning, forecasting market demand, product design, and advertising and product testing. It emphasizes how to incorporate customers and competitors into all of these aspects of new product development. In contrast, a related course Technological Innovation and New Product Development, B65.3356, emphasizes organizational issues associated with new product development.

    Operations Management

    OPMG-GB.2350 Decision Models (3)
    This course introduces the basic principles and techniques of applied mathematical modeling for managerial decision making. Students learn to use some of the more important analytic methods (e.g., spreadsheet modeling, optimization, Monte Carlo simulation) to recognize their assumptions and limitations and to employ them in decision making. Students learn to: Develop mathematical models that can be used to improve decision making within an organization, Sharpen their ability to structure problems and to perform logical analyses, Translate descriptions of decision problems into formal models and investigate those models in an organized fashion, Identify settings in which models can be used effectively, and apply modeling concepts in practical situations, Strengthen their computer skills, focusing on how to use the computer to support decision making.


    The emphasis is on model formulation and interpretation of results, not on mathematical theory. This course is aimed at M.B.A. students with little prior exposure to modeling and quantitative analysis, but it is appropriate for all students who wish to strengthen their quantitative skills. The emphasis is on models that are widely used in diverse industries and functional areas, including finance, operations, and marketing.

    Professional Responsibility

    COR2-GB.3101 Professional Responsibility (1.5)
    The purpose of this interdisciplinary course is twofold: First, it is designed to build the student's awareness of the interplay among a society's laws, ethical norms, and markets. Second, through case analyses, it provides the student with a chance to exercise his or her own ethical judgment in business situations. The overall goal is to help the student to realize that ethical assumptions, choices, and conflicts are inherent in virtually all business decisions, and to develop a greater understanding of the manager's professional responsibilities.

    All sections of the course use the same book of readings and cases, and all will. cover the same set of essential topics, including fiduciary responsibilities, product liability, ethical issues in the workplace (such as preferential hiring, sexual harassment, drug testing, or whistle blowing) and ethical conflicts in international business. Yet, by the instructor's selection of specific cases or readings, each section of the course will differ slightly in emphasis. Course instructors come from every department in the Stern School and reflect a broad range of interests and orientation.

    For each session, students will be required to study readings, either essays in business ethics or judicial opinions, and to prepare one or more cases for analysis in class. Class discussion is an essential part of the course. Students will explore in actual business contexts the fundamental concepts that underlie professional responsibility. In order to bring different perspectives to the classroom, each section of the course will host at least one outside speaker during the term.

    Professional Responsibility is a second year core course and part of the capstone program. Every student in the course should have a working knowledge of economics and the various functional areas of business, and this knowledge should be applied to the cases, readings, and class discussions. Students should complete or place out of all of the first-year core courses prior- to enrolling.
