In both master’s programs, Lauder Business School students are taught Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) classes. Thus, they get in touch with cutting-edge research on competitiveness, both in theory as well as in the frame of practical projects. Having access to world-class Harvard teaching materials and being taught by specifically trained professors, LBS students are enabled to gather a thorough understanding on aspects such as competitiveness and cluster analysis. On top of that, being part of this prestigious business school network, LBS is involved in high-level events that our students can benefit from. A recent example is the Conference on Business Ethics and Competitiveness in SMEs which took place in November 2016 at the LBS’s premises, amongst others, and which enabled students to meet with key researchers, industry leaders and policy makers in their own classrooms.
