Here is a list of my current teachings at SBSEM. Course material and more information is available on Blackboard.
Digital Innovation (Specialised Master in Innovation & Strategic Management)
The main objective of the course is to introduce the concept of Digital Innovation, that is the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to transform business processes or business models and as an input into the innovation function. The course will present the main building blocks of modern information systems and e-business as well as the foundations of business intelligence and big data analysis and will then use case studies, hands-on assignments and interactive sessions to show how and when ICT can be used to innovate and gain competitive advantage. The notions of business process management as well as e-business will receive special emphasis. At the end of the course, students should be able to develop a helicopter view on an information system and its architecture, to understand its main building blocks, to analyse and model business processes, and to foresee areas in which technology can be used to transform business processes and create a competitive advantage.
Managing Business Processes and the Digital Organisation (GEST-S490)
The main goal of this course is to teach the basics of business process analysis and management, with a specific focus on digital processes and digital business. Upon completion of the course, you should be able to analyse a business process and identify areas of improvements as well as opportunities for a better use of information technology within the process. You should also be able to understand where and how IT can radically transform business processes and generate competitive advantage. You should finally be able to understand the organisational impact of business process changes and identify actions to manage such change. The course will help you master the main tools to analyse and design business processes and successfully implement digital processes within existing as well as new businesses.
Multidisciplinary Seminar of Science & Technology (GEST-S314)
The seminar is compulsory in the Engineering track of the Bachelor in Business Engineering (3rd year). Its objective is on the one hand to complement the students' education in natural sciences and technology provided in the first 2 years of the Bachelor, and on the other hand it is to apply this background to case studies in a multidisciplinary approach. The aim of the seminar is to put science and technology into perspective by bridging the gap between natural sciences and the industry as well as markets. In practice, the seminar is built around 9 academic sessions on different technologies in a historical and scientific contexts and a case study performed in groups, in which students are expected to analyze a given technology from its scientific premises to its market applications and social or environmental impact. I share this course with Michel Allé.
Management: from theory to practice (GEST-S201)
An introductory core course taught in the second year of the Bachelor degree in Business Engineering, which provides an overview of different dimensions of organizational behavior and management. The course is shared between academic sessions and guest lectures by high-level practitioners. The course makes the link between the scientific literature in management and current issues within organizations. The course is complemented with a group assignment, which consists in analyzing a scientific paper from a top management journal and applying its theory and concepts to a real-life situation. I share this course with Bruno van Pottelsberghe.
Management Information Systems (GEST-S711)
An elective course on management information systems, taught in the second year of the Postgraduate Master Programme (MCC). The objective of this course is to introduce the main components of information systems and their organisational and strategic impact. At the end of the course, students should be able to understand the building blocks of enteprise information systems and applications, to understand their organizational complements, and to have a sense of the main challenges to manage IT within organisations.
Foundations of Computing and Information Systems (INFO-S202)
A core course on the foundations of computing and information systems, taught in the second year of the Bachelor's programme in Economics. This course has two objectives: (1) to introduce the basics of and some recent development in information and communication technologies (ICT), mainly those aspects that matter to economists, and (2) to develop the ability of students to structure algorithms and develop small programs in a procedural or web language.
