MBA Business Strategy, Governance of Organizations and Resilience


Program Description

Progress and the market have dictated the course of human societies since the era of industrial revolutions. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century, the main problem was development. The industrialized countries were the model to follow. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, limits of this dynamic began to appear. The vulnerability of a state is no longer merely measured by its difficulties in developing itself, as was the case during debates on North / South relations. Political and economic leaders must be able to respond to new needs generated by geo-economic constraints, market developments, financial crises and demands of socio-professional categories.

The survival of a population in a given territory is becoming a vital interest. Such an approach goes beyond the restrictive view of economic defense and highlights the imperfections in the definition of strategic interests validated by the European Commission. It also leaves the limits of the sovereignist current of thought which focuses on the notion of independence.

Resilience has hitherto been about how to evaluate the blow after the shock and how to find ways to recover. It seems decisive to us to apprehend the move before, during and after the shock, in order to make the right decisions to be weakened as little as possible and to anticipate the foreseeable problems.
