Although it is desirable that the student has taken, in the three-year degree, at least one exam concerning the topics of industrial organisation, the course still provides a review of the fundamental notions to allow students to approach the subjects under study without difficulty.
The same applies to working and non-attending students: they will find the material to study on the teacher's electronic bulletin board, with an introductory part aimed at providing the tools necessary for a better understanding of the teaching. In addition, tutoring is to be considered a supplementary tool for any difficulties that the student may encounter during the course of the study.
Frontal lessons - seminars
The course will deal with issues relating to the governance, organization and functioning of the company, in particular in defining the processes and strategic choices in managing corporate crises, and in the relationships that persist with the environment outside the company as well as in problems that the company may face during its development path with a particular focus dedicated to innovation as a driver of competitiveness.
The aim of the course is to illustrate and discuss the scientific foundations of business activity. In particular, we will examine the nature of the business, its role in the various economic systems, the relationships between internal organization and the market, in order to allow students to establish correct and useful logical connections between the approaches of microeconomic theories, industrial economics and managerial disciplines, and the operational reality. A further objective will be to provide students with an overview of the tools of public support for business activities.
The course aims to provide useful knowledge to understand the limits of the dominant paradigm in economics and contextually deepen the debate on the nature of the company and the different alternative theories. At the end of the course the student will be able to analyze and contextualize the role of the company and the figure of the entrepreneur in the modern economic context with an in-depth analysis of the tools for developing the business activity. The student will improve his ability to analyze business cases and assess business dynamics.
The student will have the main tools at his disposal to be able to analyze and judge industrial policy decisions and will develop methodologies to deepen and update the course topics over time. Understanding of technical language, acquisition of specialized terminology.
