Course Presentation

Management as a social science must absorb the interdisciplinary perspective and the evolution of science. In the process of decision-making, the key to success lies in the ability to anticipate future events, and whoever chooses faces the challenge of responding to change on a daily basis, in a world where interconnection networks are established and undone, at an unprecedented pace. It is in this scenario, of decisions taken in an environment of uncertainty and risk, but whose instrumental models try to sustain, that was thought the teaching of the Degree in Management in ISPGAYA.
