EMEM 533: Engineering Management and Engineering Economy

Engineering Management is the integration of human relations, planning and control concepts, systems analysis and design, and principles of management oriented toward engineering functions within an organization; organizational design and administration as they impact along the product life cycle, i.e., research, design, development, production, and use.

Engineering Economy is concerned with fundamental concepts and advanced techniques of engineering economic analysis; evaluation of alternative capital investments considering income taxes, depreciation and inflation; discounted cash flow analysis of competing projects, break-even analysis and determination of rate of return on investment, Risk and uncertainty in engineering analysis. This course will help students to explore strategies, models, and practices for leading and managing engineering organizations in a context directly relevant to them. They will engage in self-reflection about their styles, beliefs, and past experiences with leadership and management, and emerge with an insightful understanding of their personal approach as a professional. Besides, students will learn to improve their grasp of the "big picture" and how daily decisions affect the financial performance of an organization. They will learn the principles and practices of interpreting financial information and performing engineering-related economic analyses. This course focuses on current practices, using economic information for decision-making and control. Students will practice applying these techniques to applications in real firms.

EMEM 507: Project Management

Projects are one of the key mechanisms for achieving organizational goals and implementing change, whether it is the design and launch of a new product, the construction of a new building, or the development of a new information system. This course will focus on defining project scope, developing project plans, managing project execution, validating project performance and ensuring project control. Additional topics covered include decision making, project finance, project portfolio selection and risk management. Business objectives are increasingly solved by projects. Many projects fail to produce the expected results, are over budget, or not completed on time. Good project management significantly improves the likelihood of a successful project. In addition, the course combines theoretical knowledge and practical training through the use of MS Project 2010.

EMEM 535: Managing Product and Service Development

How do companies ensure innovative ideas are transformed into a product or service? Irrespective of their size, location, number of employees, revenue margin, or industry segment, all companies transform their innovative strategies into real-world products/services. Some companies have well-defined transformation steps that they call product/service development process; others simply just do whatever it takes without organized planning. But in general, they all go through major iterative phases such as: discovery, definition, development, demonstration, qualification, deployment, and lifecycle management. Furthermore, there are factors that impact all these phases such as: source of funding, people relations, supply chain, design/development tools, time constraints, internal/external regulations, etc. Adequate management of these factors enables the development process to be executed on time and on budget in order to meet customer needs and stakeholders' expectations. This course intends to provide an understanding of the product and service development process elements and the factors influencing the execution of the process.

EMEM 523: Supply Chain Management

The goal of this course is to cover both the high-level supply chain strategy and concepts (the strategic role of a supply chain and the key strategic drivers of supply chain performance: facilities, inventory, transportation, information, sourcing and pricing) and to give students a solid understanding of the analytical tools necessary to solve supply chain problems. Particular attention is being paid to the managerial context in which the methodologies are used and the managerial levers for supply chain improvement. Special emphasis will be paid to the analysis of case studies of well-known international firms for the students to apply successful supply chains in local firms to improve their performance.

EMEM 527: Globalization and Engineering

Globalization is the most, or one of the most, influential forces of the first half of the 21st century. All students, regardless of discipline, benefit from an understanding of this force and its impact on their lives and profession. The intent of this course is to view globalization as a fact of life and to give students the opportunity to analyze, contemplate, and discuss its impact on the professional lives and work of engineers. The course is meant to build global awareness and is particularly well suited for engineers working in global environments or to help prepare students for an engineering career as a practitioner, a leader, or an educator in the 21st century.

EMEM 529: Capstone Project

The Capstone Project is designed to be a reflection of a culminating set of personal, academic, and professional experiences. Students work in teams to apply to synthesize knowledge and skills acquired during the course of their education to solve design, construction and operational problems with real-world constraints and relevant to the industry. The requirement is that projects must focus on and draw upon selected engineering and management principles and concepts in addressing the challenge. In addition, students will learn how to apply and implement the theory in an organizational setting and to develop team-based skills and learn how to communicate technical issues to a variety of personnel in an organization

EMEM 537: Engineering Decision Tools

 Optimization is the problem of making decisions to maximize or minimize an objective in the presence of complicating constraints. This course will cover theories, methods, and applications of linear programming, integer programming, nonlinear programming, network models, decision analysis and games. Students will learn optimization methods and their applications to problems in engineering and business. Optimization can bring efficiency throughout the organization and may be used in the design and analysis of engineered systems of all kinds. The course emphasizes on modeling, the process of taking a real-world problem and transforming it into a formulation that can then be solved by the optimization methods. Throughout the course, Microsoft Excel will be used as a modeling environment, using add-in programs as necessary. Familiarity with Excel is an important prerequisite for this course.

EMEM 538: Knowledge and Innovation Management

Knowledge is considered as one of the most important resources of modern organizations, leading to successful implementation of organizational changes, generation of innovation, and attainment of sustainable competitive advantage. This course, therefore, aims at understanding and implementing concepts and management practices that refer to the effective acquisition, processing, and use of knowledge resources in a way that allows organizations to learn, innovate, adapt to changes occurring in their internal and external environment, and achieve high performance

EMEM 539: Big Data and Information Management

This course covers advanced data-mining methods now possible in business and research; Introduction to software for data-visualization and pattern recognition in Big Data and Information Architecture of the Big Data Cloud including an introduction to the latest technologies for distributed data storage, indexing, search, retrieval, and analysis. Students will analyze real-world data and communicating actionable findings in compelling form.

EMEM 541: Operations Research Methods

This course will continue the approach followed in the Engineering Decision Tools course in order to analyze more Operations Research methods and algorithms. The main target is always to show students how to formulate and solve business and engineering problems, using mainly the MS Excel Solver, add-in programs and other software packages. The course will cover the following topics and models: Multiple-Criteria Decision Models: Goal Programming Models; Waiting Line/Queuing Models, Queuing Network Models and their applications in Service Systems and Manufacturing Systems; Markov Decision Processes; Monte Carlo simulation and Simulation Modeling, Optimization in Simulation.

EMEM 542: Production and Service Operations Management

This course explores issues related to planning and controlling the processes used to produce the goods and services provided by an organization. Managing these complex processes including resources such as human, materials, inventories, and facilities can be quite challenging. The course will introduce students to the functional area of operations and will increase their knowledge of how a firm's operations interface with the other functional areas of the organization, familiarize students with the various issues and problems that traditionally arise in the management of operations within both manufacturing and service organizations, and acquaint students with some of the methodologies in the handling and resolution of operations issues and problems. The contents of the course include both Production Management and Service Management.

EMEM 543: Quality and Lean Management

The terms Quality and Lean are recognized as the key for the companies which want to satisfy their customer and efficiently manage their resources. The aim of Quality Management is to produce more reliable products and services by decreasing the variability. And the aim of Lean, on the other hand, is to increase the productivity by value creation and elimination of waste. The objective of this course is to teach students the definition of both quality and lean with differences and similarities and then implementation of them in production and service industries. This course covers the general concepts, and principles of quality management and lean production such as customer focus, value creation, process management, value stream mapping, waste removal, visual management, and continuous improvement.

EMEM 509: Systems Engineering

This course explores a framework encapsulating the entire systems engineering discipline and addresses the topics of systems engineering relevant to all professions associated with the complex human-made systems. The course identifies methods for thinking about large, complex problems as an integrated whole, capturing the problem and documenting it systematically; then decomposing the problem into smaller units that can be designed, built, and integrated to achieve the desired result.

EMEM 510: Accounting

The course covers the fundamental principles of financial and managerial accounting. The principal objective of the course is to develop your ability to read, understand, and use corporate accounting information. To achieve this objective, the course introduces the basics of financial reporting (including both the U.S. and international standards) to information users outside of the firm—as well as selected topics on the internal (i.e., managerial), uses of accounting information. Because the course takes the perspective of a user of the accounting information, it focuses on the concepts relevant to decision makers—such as managers, current and prospective investors, creditors, customers, suppliers, and regulators.

In order to understand how accounting reports reflect the underlying economics of the firm and to use them in making forecasts, you should know the basics of record keeping, have a good grasp of the effects of typical business transactions on the accounting statements, and understand the implications of generic business strategies (e.g., product differentiation) for the firm’s financial reports. We will also study the financial reporting environment, the role of the standard-setting bodies and other key players, and the desirable properties of accounting information (e.g., relevance and reliability).

The course focuses on how economic events and transactions are reflected in the firm’s accounting system as financial and non-financial information, how this information is processed and communicated to the users. To be informed users, you should understand the nature of the decisions at hand; accordingly, the course will draw on the insights from microeconomics, decision analysis, operations management, and finance.

EMEM 514: Finance

This course examines important issues in corporate finance from the perspective of financial managers who are responsible for making a significant investment and financing decisions. The course covers both financial tools and applications. The first part of the course will focus on mastering the tools that lay beneath all modern financial decision making. Broadly speaking, this involves discounted cash flow analysis that appropriately takes into account taxes, as well as equilibrium risk and return tradeoffs faced by participants in capital markets. The second half of the course explores contemporary issues that will be of importance to anyone seeking a job in the financial markets industry. A wide range of topics will be covered, such as venture capital, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, and financial distress.

While the course is not designed to dwell on abstraction, the basic theoretical underpinnings of the various topics are a prerequisite to competitive analysis. An emphasis is placed on the development of problem-solving skills based on a good understanding of the business environment as opposed to pure theorizing or mindless numbers exercises. Because of the practical importance of the material and as an illustration of the relevant theory, students will discuss examples and cases.

EMEM 517: Marketing

The course will provide you with a systematic framework for understanding marketing management and practice. The classes will combine the theoretical and practical part following an open discussion format. The course puts emphasis on how to (1) assess marketing opportunities by analyzing customers, competitors, and their own company (the 3 C's), and (2) design effective marketing programs via selecting appropriate strategies for pricing, promotion, place, and product (the 4 P's). Accordingly, this course is organized around these three C's and four P's. While most course sessions emphasize one of these topics, please note that the goal of this course is to prepare you to create a marketing strategy that concurrently addresses all of these points.

EMEM 511: Business Strategy

This course deals with the work and understanding of strategic management. The course adopts the perspective of managers within the corporation, business, division, plant, or other operating units who must align their individual actions and responsibilities with the overall objectives of the firm. During the course, students will focus on the perspectives and skills required to diagnose and find realistic solutions for critical problems in complex business situations. The course deals with issues of both managerial effectiveness and business efficiency-emphasizing "doing the right things" as well as "doing things right," while avoiding falling into the trap of doing the wrong things really well. This course will teach strategic skills and techniques that can be used to analyze any situation in any environment. Students will learn how to analyze a case end-to-end and recommend an appropriate course of action. Prerequisites: Finance and Accounting

EMEM 516: Management of Organizations

The purpose of this course is to prepare the student to be an effective leader and manager of others regardless of career path and to be a good analyst of how best to organize people. The course will focus on two broad sets of questions. First, what principles can one draw on to analyze and improve performance in organizations? How can a manager exert influence for positive results at any level of an organization? How can the manager maintain high ethical standards? Students will examine principles for designing incentive systems, motivating employees, running effective teams, making good decisions, harnessing diversity, and organizing the distribution of work. The second set of questions concerns what an individual needs to do to be an effective leader. What can the graduate contribute to his/her firm and why should others respect and listen to him/her? Students will be challenged to reflect on their own personal strengths and weaknesses and to develop specific strategies for making a difference in any organization

EMEM 512: Leading Change

 The primary objective of this course is to acquire knowledge and gain an understanding of the basic principles associated with effectively leading change initiatives in organizations. Students will be introduced to the theories, concepts and practices of managing change, whether planned, incremental and localized, or revolutionary, under conditions of stability or crisis, and system-wide. In effect, change theories and contemporary practices will be examined at the individual, group/departmental and organizational levels. Beyond studying the causes and consequences of change, and the advantages/disadvantages of leading change from the top as opposed to bottom-up change, we will also investigate potential sources of resistance to change and strategies for overcoming them.

A second objective is to contribute to the development of the professional and clinical skills of students as change agents through intensive study and case analyses. The perspective taken is that of the responsible leader and the role he or she can and should play with respect to understanding and managing context, content, and process. More specifically, through intensive case analyses, we will study where and under what conditions the need for change is called for (context), what form or type of change is required (content), how change can be successfully implemented or managed (process), and competencies development or key success factors for those leading or managing change program or initiatives in organizations.

EMEM 513: Entrepreneurship

The focus of this course is the successful creation and early execution of a new venture. The course concentrates on new enterprises based on substantial innovations with potential for high growth and funding by venture capitalists. The course covers the topics of industry entry, new firm formation, the advantages and disadvantages of small firm size for technological competition, achieving and sustaining competitive advantage within industries, and patterns of technology and industry evolution and associated windows of opportunity for entry. In the first part of the course, students will concentrate on opportunity evaluation and business plan development. Then, in the second part of the course students will explore the strategic challenges of managing growth and realizing value. The psychology of entrepreneurs and how that might affect the quality of their decisions will also be considered.

EMEM 545: Business Communication

This course presents competent communication as a critical component for personal career and organizational success. We will work to understand the foundation of competent communication in the business world as well as to assess and improve our own verbal and written communication to be more effective, clear, appropriately assertive and based in foundations of personal integrity and leadership. Students will practice developing and delivering presentations, using appropriate and effective visual support, which will demonstrate relevance and benefits to audiences at varying levels or expertise and interest.

Students will also practice drafting and editing succinct, clear, readable written business documents which create effective and memorable messages.

EMEM 529: CAPSTONE PROJECT

The capstone project is an end-of-program assessment exercise designed to ensure that the graduates of the program have successfully met all their program learning objectives. The capstone project is thus used in MEM primarily for summative purposes. The project culminates in a team report (capstone project) that is publicly defended. Submission of a CP report and completion of this 16 ECTS module with a letter grade is a graduation requirement for MEM.

The CP provides an opportunity for the students to plan and execute a major applied project and thus demonstrate mastery of the technical and managerial skills required in their chosen profession. The CP is a unique exercise and successful completion in the allotted timeframe depends on prior preparation, careful time management and strict adherence to project timelines.
