The objective of this course is to develop the ability of using analysis tools which will allow the student to systematize a process, from the abstract idea to a reasonably plausible business plan. This plan will have a solid financial justification from an entrepreneurial point of view.
The business plan is a document in which students identify, describe, and analyze a business opportunity; they also assess its technical, economical, and financial feasibility, and develop all the necessary procedures and strategies to transform the opportunity into a concrete business project.
- The business plan has two purposes:To train in, analyze, and learn about the business before setting it in motion.
- To be used as a presentation card of the project (usually through its short version, known as Executive Summary) and of the entrepreneurs to third parties when it is the time to lobby for any kind of financial collaboration and/or support.
The course is structured in four stages:
Picking up an Idea
In which students identify and develop the business opportunity.
Strategic and Feasibility Plan
In which students determine the technical feasibility of the business opportunity and develop the necessary procedures and strategies in order to transform the opportunity into a concrete business project.
In which students determine the project’s economic and financial feasibility.
Executive Summary and Final Presentation
In which the students present their business project to a hypothetical group of investors who will have to assess it. The students will then be entrepreneurs who have a Business Plan and they need financing for. The faculty will be the group of investors who will decide whether they will invest in the project or not.
With the objective of strengthen the students’ management and practical leadership skills in the Strategic and Policy Management in a company , the masters is complemented with advance courses in general management.
The courses deepen in management in the processes of defining and developing a business strategy as well as in the executives’ leadership skills in a company in a comprehensive way. Begin successful demands to things: that the organization is perceived as leading outside and that the manager is a leader in the inside. This is what we could call the business vision and the government vision.
The courses are developed in a face-to-face, intensive way, with a combination of methodologies, including preparing and discussing concretes situations in business (case study methodology), workshops, role playing, among others, all of them focused on each session’s objective.
