The course will examine the elements of business models and explore how they differ across industries and the phases of a firm’s growth. The emphasis will be on a holistic approach to business models and earnings principles including strategy, marketing and branding, operations and supply chain, HRM, innovation and finance. However, the above functional divisions are often not found in small businesses. Instead managers need to be flexible and able to cope with the complexity and ambiguity of operating within a contemporary and dynamic context. This course aims also to encourage students to widen their knowledge of business know-how in the context of small business.

Opintojakson aihealueita ovat liiketoimintaosaaminen, liiketoimintamallit ja niiden kehittäminen, liiketoimintamallit käytännössä sekä yritysesimerkit.
