Current topics in PR & Marketing (period 1)

Current topics in AdvPR (96 Kb)

The course familiarizes students with the contemporary perspectives and the progress in the field of advertising and public relation, serving as a valuable complement to the basic advertising and public relation course(s). More specifically, even if the course will endorse a business administration focus, given the interdisciplinary features of the field and the very recent research directions towards a more socio-cultural approach, the course will mainly focus on consumers/audience and socio-cultural and political application/implication. Students are thus offered opportunities to further examine topics such as modern marketing communication and visual design, consumer culture research, public relation and public diplomacy, both through individual and group assignments, and in this manner widen the basic understanding of the advertising and public relation discipline.


Current topics in Operations Management(period 1)

Today businesses are facing challenges in the growing markets such as disrupting technologies, changing customer preferences and behaviors. As a result, the organizations are trying to improve their operations to outperform other firms in terms of performance, service and product quality, and cost. Improving operational efficiency is crucial for the long-term survival and success of all organizations.

This course aims to provide the students with an understanding of operations management by providing the student with theoretical perspectives and methods. This will include both the theoretical framework as well as the practical implications with case studies.


Current topics in Management (period 2)

Current topics in Management (107 Kb)

The last three decades have seen dramatic rises in the employment rates of women. However, pronounced gender differences remain in the nature of women and men’s contribution to the labour market. Whilst women represent over 40% of the global labour force and are moving into professional and managerial jobs, the number of women holding senior managerial positions is still low.

This course examines these and other gender issues in employment, and the reasons behind women turning to entrepreneurship. It introduces key concepts and theories of gender difference, gendered divisions of paid and unpaid work and gender ideologies. It discusses explanations for gender disadvantage and discrimination at work, evidence for gender differences in management and leadership style and the association of management with masculinity.


Current topics in Marketing (period 2)

Course syllabus

This course introduces and explores current issues in the marketing field of study, focusing on the latest research, business, and societal developments. Students will have the opportunity to further examine topics as service marketing, high technology marketing, or sustainability and transcendence marketing, both through individual and group assignments, and in this manner widen the basic understanding of the marketing discipline.


Current topics in Finance (period 3)

Current topics in Finance (135 Kb)

The aim of the course is to navigate perhaps the greatest contemporary challenge to the economic well-being of citizens in developed countries: the shifting of responsibility for managing personal savings from governments and employers to households at a time when financial markets are more complex than ever. The course will provide students with some basic concepts and tools to understand the main aspects of this challenge and become more conscious consumers of financial products. Some specific topics include lifecycle theory of savings, investor profiling and the role of behavioral biases, complexity, incentives and market abuse.


Credit System                             

The Swedish higher education credit system is fully integrated into ECTS, the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. One Swedish higher education credit (sometimes called credit, HE credit or hp) is equivalent to one ECTS credit.
