Welcome to the CS-E5140 Global Business in Digital Age -course, part of EIT Digital Master`s program, offered by Aalto Ventures Program.
In this course you will familiarize yourselves with how to do an external market and internal organization level analysis for an internationalizing technology based business, how to analyze and adjust product and service offerings according to the targeted markets and how to make a real market entry plan leveraging the opportunities of the company’s internal and increasingly digital external business environment.
The course will be organized fully online due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic.
Almost all of the course activities will be organized here, on the course MyCourses page. Certain chosen online lecture contents will be leveraged in the EIT Digital Online Learning environment.
The course will involve:
Independent study of varied learning materials (readings, video recording, slides)
on your own time and schedule BUT stay within course schedule instructed 'bounds' (e.g. DLs) that are intended to support your work on the course project
Interactive Q&A sessions on Zoom on Thursdays
These may involve discussions with visiting lecturers, discussions about the course project phases, etc.
Teamwork on the course project
The bulk of your work on the course will be spent on working with case companies related growth challenges together with company's TMT members and your teammates.
This will include desk research, virtual meetings with company representatives, reading, and writing the report.
The course begins on week of Thursday April 16th and the DL for the final project report is May 31st (last virtual session on May 21st).
The Course Project is done in teams and in two phases.
The course will be evaluated based on the team course project report. Teammates will receive the same grade unless there is valid cause to deviate from it within the team.
Voluntary individual assignment may be used to raise your individual grade by +1.
Primary contact channel is the course discussion forums.
However, if you have questions that are somehow personal or private in nature, you can email to teachers: Olli-Pekka Mutanen and Mikko Heiskala (first.last(a)aalto.fi).
