be invited to comment and debate the opinions expressed by the speaker. The Action Learning Project is a team work, based on a “real” case study. The objective of the exercise is that students will identify the key issues that the company they study is facing and will elaborate strategic and operational recommendations. Course Description : The course "corporate strategy" deepens the course of the ﬁrst semester with the aim of putting the tools into a professional situation. Its goal is to develop the professional skills to solve corporate strategy cases. Through case studies and a group strategic recommendation, the course will enable students to implement key frameworks for strategic thinking. Required reading : Grant (Robert M.), Contemporary strategy analysis, 7th ed., Blackwell Publishing, 2010.
Course Description : This course is for students who want to guide development strategy for a developing country, either within its government or from an aid agency. Today, we see so many development recommendations – some weighty, others not. This course uses the HausmannRodrik-Velasco (HRV) theory of binding constraints to organize higher-probability responses to development challenges. The 1st half of the course focuses on the HRV framework and technical solutions : ﬁscal/ﬁnancial/regulatory/infrastructure/ health/education. Of course, technical solutions often fail because of institutional/social/political constraints, including corruption & conﬂict. The 2nd half of the course addresses these and seeks to identify practical responses to allow development. Objective of the course : (1) Understanding how endowments/policies/ programs affect growth & welfare in developing countries ; (2) Appreciation of how institutional/social/political factors may impede development (& practical responses) ; (3) Practice in synthesizing technical solutions and practical responses into a Country Development Strategy. Required reading : Dani Rodrik, “Goodbye Washington Consensus, Hello Washington Confusion,” December 2006 ; John Williamson, “What Washington Means by Policy Reform,” November 2002 ; Daron Acemoglu, et al, “An African Success Story : Botswana,” July 2001 ; Case studies.
