Interdisciplinary themes of critical analytical thinking, creativity and innovation, and personal leadership development differentiate the Stanford M. The course content is relevant to researchers in health services and health policy, health-care managers, entrepreneurs, health-care consultants, and physicians. We will analyze trade policy tools used by governments (e.g., tariffs, subsidies, quotas, exchange rates), and examine the role of industry and politics at the domestic and global level in applying these tools.
Students will gain an understanding of how to assess whether health-care interventions work, and if they work, whether they are worth what they cost.
Instead, there will be a mandatory, all-day class field trip to explore inequality issues in depth and in person on Wednesday, May 24. This is an advanced applications economics course that applies recent innovations and high-powered tools to organization and general management.
The class will be co-taught by a GSB labor economist and an advisor to policy makers with decades of business LOGISTICAL NOTE: The class will not meet on May 23 or May 25.
As such, I expect it will be of primary interest to Ph. students majoring in accounting, finance, and economics.
Our goal is not only to review existing research, but also to stimulate new work in the area.
Dual Degree programs are offered with the School of Medicine (M. Participants generally have eight or more years of work experience, with at least five years of management experience. In the market design component of the course, we will apply optimization and simulation techniques to such topics as auctions (e.g., designing auctions for selling online advertising slots) and matching (e.g., designing mechanisms for matching students to schools). Key topics include long-run economic growth, technological change, wage inequality, international trade, interest rates, inflation, exchange rates, and monetary policy. We will look at inequality in income, some of its potential sources, and its effects in other areas.
A) and the program in International Policy Studies (M. The Stanford Master of Science in Management for Experienced Leaders Program (MSx) is an intensive, one-year course of study for middle-management executives leading to the degree of Master of Science in management. The pricing component of the course will handle both traditional topics, such as price differentiation, and more modern ones, such as dynamic pricing. This course gives students the background they need to understand the broad movements in the global economy. We will also focus on business's role -- what are the responsibilities of private sector companies, how does inequality affect them, and how should the growth in inequality affect their strategies?
Almost all students obtain one or more years of work experience before entering, but a few students enroll directly following undergraduate study. The key is for students to develop the small number of intellectual tools that enables one to analyze a wide variety of economic problems. No prior Economics background is required but students who have not had courses in this area (or not had one in a very long time) may want to brush up on math prior to the start of classes. The focus of the course is on applying these techniques to a particular business domain: pricing mechanisms and market design. We will ask if and how public policy can affect inequality.
The mission of the Stanford Graduate School of Business is to create ideas that deepen and advance the understanding of management, and with these ideas, develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who change the world. The general management curriculum rests on a foundation of social science principles and management functions, tailored to each student’s background and aspirations. Emphasis is on the practical application of these techniques. Guest lectures by experts from the medical school, entrepreneurs, pharmaceutical industry, and health care plans. To do this, students will have to understand the economic forces that determine the patterns and consequences of international trade.
A.) degree program prepares change agents to make a meaningful impact in the world through leadership of business, government, and social-sector organizations. The course will cover principal evaluative techniques for health care, including, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-benefit analysis, utility assessment, and decision analysis. The objective of this course is to give students an understanding of what international economic policy means for business leaders.
