Seminar Description

Published in Business Strategy categories

Could you define competitive advantage? How about barriers to entry?
If so, how can one quantify and measure it?

Executives often confuse strategy with planning. Never losing sight of your competition will help you avoid wars that you cannot win. It will also direct your attention to protecting your competitive advantage, which is the real basis for your success.

Competition is the monster that every business is afraid of. In this seminar, competition is demystified, explained, and handled as the enemy or ally, as the case may be.

This enlightening ACT business seminar is based on the hugely popular Executive MBA course at Columbia Business School and follows the highly-acclaimed book "Competition Demystified", where leading economist Bruce C. Greenwald and co-author Judd Kahn "offer an easy-to-follow method for understanding the competitive structure of your industry and developing an appropriate strategy for your specific position." You will also be studying real world Harvard Business Review cases, gaining valuable insight that will help you distinguish the facts and fiction about competition, and the secrets of coming out a winner.

Студентски живот

Студентската заедница на ACT се одликува со мултикултурен карактер. Повеќе од 300 американски студенти во сите држави на САД секоја година избираат да студираат на ACT, заедно со студентите на Грција, и на соседните земји на Балканот, но, и од сите страни на светот.

ACT им нуди на своите студенти една потполна програма на уметнички и спортски активности, бројни едукативни патувања, како и една од најголемите програми service learning, која ги поврзува студентите со повеќе од 40 невладини организации и им обезбедува можност за социјални придонеси.

Кино клуб, Удружение на дипломатијата, тенис, нуркање (scuba diving) и многу друго ги очекуваат студентите во ACT сами да одкријат.

Исто така и животот во Солун. Солун е втор најголем град во Грција. Една вистинска раскрсница помеѓу Истокот и Западот и капија која води накај Балканот. Основан е 315 година пред Новата ера и денеска е еден современ град со повеќе од милион жители, познат по своето пристаниште, големи булевари, меѓутоа и по убави делови на градот како Ано Поли (Горен град), безбројни византиски споменици, музеи и по многу друго.

Солун е најжив универзитетски центар на Јужно-источна Европа со повеќе од 100.000 студенти, буквално 1 од 10 жители на градот студира на Универзитетот. Секој ден градот ги дочекува со добредојде младите од целиот свет и затоа животот во ACT не престанува да биде возбудлив!

Пријавите за упис – со неопходните упатства – се наоѓаат на интернет страницата на ACT (www. act.edu) каде што можете да ги пополните и да ги приложите online.

Академската година се дели на три периоди. Почеток на програмата е во септември, јануари и април, но постои и еден краток летен период за упис, обично некаде во средината јуни до средината на јули.

Стипендии – Субвенции за студии

ACT се труди константно да биде не само прв избор, но, да биде и материјално достапен избор за нови студенти во Грција, на Балканот и на останатите земји. Затоа, ACT доделува стипендии врз основа на материјалните потреби и академски успеси на еден значителен број на новодојдени студенти.

Цел на овие стипендии е квалитетната настава да ја направат по пристапна за студентите, посебно во овие тешки времиња, а исто така и да ги награди и успесите на учениците. •

American College of Thessaloniki (Американскиот колеџ на Солун) развил и воспоставил еден систем на овозможување на материјална помош на студиите, што допринесува никој да не остане без студии заради ограничените материјални можности.
