Contents:
The lecture introduces the most relevant IFRS standards and discusses the informational impact on capital markets. After an introduction that will touch on the institutional background of the international harmonization process in financial reporting, we will focus on key accounting issues such as revenue recognition and financial instruments. We will illustrate the effects using current accounting practices of multinational entities, go into major research findings and apply the knowledge to case studies from accounting practice. We will conclude the lecture by an assessment of the importance of accounting for corporate governance and controlling (inside perspective) and for capital-market-oriented financial statement analysis (outside perspective).

Learning outcomes:
Students will know about economic consequences of financial reporting and about the role accounting information plays on capital markets, understand the special role of IFRS on international capital markets, be familiar with the main IFRS accounting rules and their impact on financial statements, and demonstrate orally and in writing their comprehension in the solution of case studies.

Contents:
Students are provided an overview of the most important methods and approaches for applied empirical research and gain practical experience in conducting an empirical analysis.
One part of the course teaches the most important methods to estimate causal effects. These include, but are not restricted to, randomized experiments, linear regression, fixed effects estimators, difference(s)-in-difference(s), instrumental variables and regression discontinuity design. The focus is on understanding the advantages and disadvantages of the available econometric methods and less on a highly technical presentation. Illustrative examples will always be from the field of taxation.
The other part of the course focuses on hands-on empirical applications and students learn how to conduct their own empirical analysis. For this purpose, students are introduced to the usage of a statistical software package (Stata) and to the access and analysis of large data sets (in particular firm databases sets such as Amadeus or Compustat). This part of the lecture will also use examples from research in the field of taxation.
To receive a grade, students are required to write a short term-paper which presents the results from their independently conducted empirical analysis (either an own research idea or a replication) and/or they are asked to present the results from their own empirical analysis in class.

Learning outcomes:

  • Overview of most important methods and approaches for applied empirical research.
  • Hands-on practice of empirical analysis using statistical software.

Form of assessment:   
Term paper based on own research project and/or presentation in class

Contents:
The lecture deals with the topic of “Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR). The focus is on the background of CSR and the relations­hip between profit generation and responsibility. For this purpose, theoretical foundations of CSR as well as practical CSR competencies are discussed. One of the central questions is how CSR can be managed under competitive pressure and recent developments such as digitization, disruptionof business models, and globalization. Managerial challenges in the field of CSR management are illustrated by case studies.

Learning outcomes:
The lecture sensitizes participants to the relevance of ethical questions in daily business. The imparted knowledge enables students to handle the prominent term “Corporate Social Responsibility” appropriately. In particular, students are able to define the scope and the limits of CSR with reasonable care. These competencies allow students to structure and handleethical challenges in management.

Lernziel:
Students will learn tools to analyze and develop business models and how to tweak them towards growth. They solve real-life challenges in new ventures in a project format and learn first-hand what it is like to work in a startup by gaining real startup experience. By being (temporally) part of a startup team, they will acquire managerial skills and gain familiarity with problem solving in practice. Team work experience, profound presentation and consulting skills are also core learning outcomes of this class.

Beschreibung:
You do not think inside the box and love working on challenging projects? Next to studying, you are eager to apply your knowledge in the real world and learn from startup teams on the project? You like new ideas and love their execution? You want to dive deeper into the anatomy of business models and get the unit economics right? Then you should opt for Entrepreneurial Spirit. The course is a new format to foster startup growth, entrepreneurial culture and to advance the startup ecosystem at and around the University of Mannheim. With their expertise, the students support the startups in improving their products, services and business models and help them to be more competitive. We will work with real companies in this course and you will actively contribute to their growth. Thus, high dedication, willingness to take over responsibilities and professionalism are a prerequisite. There are two tracks in MAN 633: One for students who have no startup project yet and one for students (individual or founding team) who work on their own advanced startup project.
MAN 633 helps to advance startups in our network by sending students teams as a task force (Inside the Venture Track) but also helps students with an advanced startup idea to reach their next milestones and gain support in a course format (Own Venture Track). For both tracks, the course starts with an initial educational full-day workshop. The initial workshop is the same for both tracks and provides hands-on tools to assess, structure and solve startup challenges. The workshop part is concluded with an exam (20%). Following this educational element, the students form interdisciplinary teams of 3–5 and solve challenges in real ventures. Experienced MCEI coaches will work closely with the student consulting teams to make sure that they are on track to maximize their learning experience while simultaneously permitting the teams to have as much fun as possible.
Inside the Venture Track (for students with no own startup)
Offers students who have no own startup but want to experience the startup world an excellent opportunity to work at eye-level with an experienced real-world startup team. The concept:  Solving challenges of young companies with student approaches and on-site by student teams. Assisted by an experienced MCEI coach, the students carry out joint projects with the startup after a needs analysis. The startups are recruited via our extensive MCEI network. The projects have a mid-term presentation (20%), end presentation (20%) and a final managerial report (40%).
Own Venture Track (for students who already work on their advanced startup project)
Further advance your own startup in class. Your performance appraisal will be according to milestones set at the beginning of class and you will receive continuous counseling by MCEI coaches. MAN 633 offers you the opportunity to recruit a student team from class to work on your startup’s challenges during the course just like in our “client companies” in the Inside the Venture Track. Please approach the instructors upon course registration to sort out whether your startup project is eligible for our Own Venture Track. This offer is for advanced startup projects only – you can start greenfield (i.e., at idea stage) in MAN 631. The projects have a mid-term presentation (20%), end presentation (20%) and a final managerial report with continuous status updates (40%).
The direct integration of the students into the startups within the framework of the course enables a joint action-oriented learning experience on both sides. In addition, we strengthen the startup community, promote startup companies and potential startups, integrate startups directly into the university's offerings and support the transfer of knowledge and technology between the university and the economy

MAN 635 Social Entrepreneurship (Fall 2021)

Course Outline
This seminar briefly summarizes the evolution of social entrepreneurship as a method of organizing change: the application of entrepreneurial theory to the founding of non-profit and for-profit organizations, which seek to build 'social capital'. Given political and economic uncertainty, the anticipated exit from nuclear energy sources in an era of scarce resources on the one hand and the social implications of the IT and financial revolutions on the other, the focus will be upon ”ecopreneurship” and ”frugal or reverse innovation.” Students will create their own sustainable 'green designs' in the fields of their choice (in groups of not more than 4).
 
Learning Outcomes
By the end of the module, the students understand how innovative ideas and practical business models can achieve major social impact, how social entrepreneurs can build sustainable organizations, and why social entrepreneurship has become a contagious global movement.

Beschreibung:
Businesses worldwide have been facing a fundamental change in the ways in which customers and companies interact with each other. Customers are more socially connected than ever, they expect more from companies and brands, and information reaches them faster than ever before. At the same time, companies develop digital business models. One apparent development is the rise of platform business models. Thus, the rise of digital technologies has fundamentally changed the way companies craft marketing strategies and how marketing creates, communicates, and delivers value to customers. The overarching goal of this course is to establish a perspective on the digital marketing strategies companies can employ to occupy a sustainable position in the age of social, digital, and mobile for both pipeline and platform businesses.

Beschreibung:

Supply chain management involves the coordination of different parties within and across companies, such as sales and marketing affiliates, manufacturing sites, logistics, suppliers, customers, and wholesalers. With increasing size of an organization and its supply chain structures, global supply chain management (SCM) requires adequate visibility and decision support. Furthermore SCM is today increasingly faced with the need of a new Demand-Driven operating model for the highly digital interlinked Supply Chains and the highly volatile and complex business environment becoming the New Normal. Advanced Planning Systems like SAP SCM APO and SAP IBP (Integrated Business Planning) are used to standardize global planning processes and to solve the required planning tasks, such as statistical forecasting, inventory and supply network planning. In many large corporations, they form the backbone of global supply chain planning today.

 

This course discusses how SCM and Demand-Driven Adaptive Planning Principals can be supported by integrated business planning systems. Key topics include demand planning, supply network planning, production planning & scheduling, as well as other related topics, such as global availability check, inventory & supply network replenishment.

Beschreibung:

To match supply/capacity with demand, managers and planners have to consider different types of variability. We discuss sources for three dimensions of variability and analyze the effects on several operational performance measures. This course introduces planning tasks for the design and management of operations systems from the strategic to the operational level. The first part of the course deals with a classification of production systems and the characterization of design problems for flow production systems. The second part of the course covers control and scheduling decisions.

 

To manage and reduce variability we introduce classical approaches from lean management as well as modern business analytics tools. This course aims to provide insights into the key decisions regarding the design and management of lean production systems. For this purpose quantitative models for the performance analysis and optimization are discussed. Selected problems are implemented and solved using standard software for business analytics

Beschreibung:
During the last decades, the value sourced from suppliers and innovation stemming from the supply base have increased substantially in many industries. Consequently, purchasing’s role has shifted from a clerical support role in the corporate hierarchy to a truly strategic and proactive role that drives growth, innovation, and value creation. Today, most organizations consider the management of their suppliers as a key strategic issue. Given its potential to contribute significantly to firm performance, the procurement function receives strong top management attention.
This module provides a broad survey of modern procurement theory and practice from a strategic perspective. Topics include the design and implementation of procurement strategies, processes, organizational structures, and performance measurement systems, as well as the management of supplier portfolios, buyer-supplier relations­hips, and supplier innovation to meet firms’ strategic supply needs.

Contents:

Production systems often operate in an uncertain environment, e.g., due to uncertain demand, unreliable machines, or random processing capacities. In order to support decisions for such uncertain manufacturing systems, we apply analytical solution approaches. The basic concepts of the analysis of waiting lines are developed in sufficient detail. Economies of scale and the value of flexible capacities are discussed. Additionally, performance approximations for lean production systems, such as flow lines, are introduced. Several objectives, performance measures, and methods of robust planning are introduced.


Learning outcomes:

Students learn to understand the impact of stochastic variations in production systems. After this course students are familiar with the theory and practice of capacity analysis of stochastic manufacturing systems. They learn to adapt and to apply analytical approximations and robust planning methods.


Notes:The module “OPM 661 – Robust Planning in Stochastic Manufacturing Systems” is an integrated course. Hence, lectures and exercises can both take place during the Tuesday sessions and the Thursday sessions.
The first session will be on Tuesday, 16th Febr. 2016. The last session will be on Thursday, 21st April 2016.
The exam in the module “OPM 661 – Robust Planning in Stochastic Manufacturing Systems” will take place on Tuesday, 26th April 2016 (during the regular lecture slot).
