MGB-250-001 Bay Area MBA Winter 2020 Technology Competition and Strategy Bhargava, Hemant Odd Weekend Friday San Ramon 3 7 24 0 MGB 250 001 77112 3332677 This course provides you a framework for thinking about technology competition and strategy. More contemporarily, this course is about a business revolution that we are in the middle of, a platform revolution. Platform-enabled marketplaces, and other Internet-based goods and products with digital components and network effects, have stormed at the head of economic activity. Platform-mediated networks produce over half the revenue for over half of the world's 100 largest companies (e.g., Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Google, American Express, Time Warner). Technology entrepreneurship is commonplace. But this class of goods has very different, almost weird, characteristics, with distinctive economic forces that affect supply (e.g., supply and cost structures), demand (e.g., how value is created) and markets (e.g., industry organization, alliances, and competition). Managing and responding to these forces requires distinctive competitive strategies. Conversely, strategic errors can be devastating. What are these forces? How do they impact market outcomes in technology industries? And how should firms shape their competitive strategy?

MGB-271-001 Bay Area MBA Winter 2020 Strategic Cost Management Anderson, Shannon Even Weekend Saturday San Ramon 3 16 30 0 MGB 271 001 64932 3320822 This class examines how firms use organizational design and cost management to achieve a sustainable cost structure as a basis for superior profit performance. A value chain framework is used to explore how firms design and structure business processes for strategic advantage. We start with an overview of how modern product costing systems work and their limitations as a basis for strategic cost management. We then study how firms manage costs during product design and development, production and/or service delivery, and after the sale. Competitive cost structures are increasingly obtained, not through technical efficiencies of a single firm, but through innovative collaboration among firms ---- what has been termed the 'extended enterprise.' Thus more than half of the course examines cost management at the boundaries of the firm --- where the firm interacts with suppliers, strategic alliance partners, customers and society.

This class is designed to help develop knowledge, skills and desire to do business in the international marketplace. Each time, we pick a new part of the world to study that reflects some special opportunity. The course will begin with discussion of importance of international business and theory of Comparative Advantage and the continued trend towards globalization. The class will follow up with appreciation of spectrum of key cultural parameters: individual independence or group conformity; hierarchical or flat societies; feeling or thinking decision-making; implicit or explicit communication styles; legal contracts or personal relationships; etc. We will discuss how these cultural tendencies shape business practices. Next we’ll build an appreciation for international risk by discussing corporate governance, foreign exchange fluctuations, political/economic infrastructure, taxation policies, and sovereign credit ratings. We’ll use case studies to enhance discussion of theories.

MGP-250-001 Sacramento MBA Winter 2020 Technology Competition and Strategy Bhargava, Hemant W 6:00pm-9:00pm - See Notes Sacramento 3 19 24 0 MGP 250 001 77114 3332681 This course provides you a framework for thinking about technology competition and strategy. More contemporarily, this course is about a business revolution that we are in the middle of, a platform revolution. Platform-enabled marketplaces, and other Internet-based goods and products with digital components and network effects, have stormed at the head of economic activity. Platform-mediated networks produce over half the revenue for over half of the world's 100 largest companies (e.g., Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Google, American Express, Time Warner). Technology entrepreneurship is commonplace. But this class of goods has very different, almost weird, characteristics, with distinctive economic forces that affect supply (e.g., supply and cost structures), demand (e.g., how value is created) and markets (e.g., industry organization, alliances, and competition). Managing and responding to these forces requires distinctive competitive strategies. Conversely, strategic errors can be devastating. What are these forces? How do they impact market outcomes in technology industries? And how should firms shape their competitive strategy?

MGP-271-001 Sacramento MBA Winter 2020 Strategic Cost Management Anderson, Shannon Odd Weekend Saturday Sacramento 3 19 30 0 MGP 271 001 64958 3320874 This class examines how firms use organizational design and cost management to achieve a sustainable cost structure as a basis for superior profit performance. A value chain framework is used to explore how firms design and structure business processes for strategic advantage. We start with an overview of how modern product costing systems work and their limitations as a basis for strategic cost management. We then study how firms manage costs during product design and development, production and/or service delivery, and after the sale. Competitive cost structures are increasingly obtained, not through technical efficiencies of a single firm, but through innovative collaboration among firms ---- what has been termed the 'extended enterprise.' Thus more than half of the course examines cost management at the boundaries of the firm --- where the firm interacts with suppliers, strategic alliance partners, customers and society.

This class is designed to help develop knowledge, skills and desire to do business in the international marketplace. Each time, we pick a new part of the world to study that reflects some special opportunity. The course will begin with discussion of importance of international business and theory of Comparative Advantage and the continued trend towards globalization. The class will follow up with appreciation of spectrum of key cultural parameters: individual independence or group conformity; hierarchical or flat societies; feeling or thinking decision-making; implicit or explicit communication styles; legal contracts or personal relationships; etc. We will discuss how these cultural tendencies shape business practices. Next we’ll build an appreciation for international risk by discussing corporate governance, foreign exchange fluctuations, political/economic infrastructure, taxation policies, and sovereign credit ratings. We’ll use case studies to enhance discussion of theories.

This class is designed to help develop knowledge, skills and desire to do business in the international marketplace. Each time, we pick a new part of the world to study that reflects some special opportunity. The course will begin with discussion of importance of international business and theory of Comparative Advantage and the continued trend towards globalization. The class will follow up with appreciation of spectrum of key cultural parameters: individual independence or group conformity; hierarchical or flat societies; feeling or thinking decision-making; implicit or explicit communication styles; legal contracts or personal relationships; etc. We will discuss how these cultural tendencies shape business practices. Next we’ll build an appreciation for international risk by discussing corporate governance, foreign exchange fluctuations, political/economic infrastructure, taxation policies, and sovereign credit ratings. We’ll use case studies to enhance discussion of theories.

Note: Students who have previously taken IST may register for a second time, but they will have the lowest priority in terms of registration. That is, even if you are in your third year in the program, and can register early, if you have taken the course previously, you will be put on the end of the line in terms of registration priority.
