    Title: Paris: Philosophy of Race & Racism: On the Concept of White Privilege


    This class session asks: how can philosophical tools of reasoning   and argument help us better understand the concept of white privilege--and socio-political privilege more generally--as well as the often contentious public discourse around white privilege? We will draw on the classic paper by Peggy McIntosh "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack," recent philosophical work on the notion of privilege, and our own experiences talking  about the idea of white privilege in everyday life.

    Title: The Importance of Social Media Marketing

    Description: Social networks are one of the fastest growing industries in the world. As a result, social media is quickly becoming one of the important aspects of marketing. The purpose of social media marketing is to build a brand and increase a brand’s visibility, through building relationships and communicating with potential customers. Yet, using social media for the purpose of marketing is a challenging task. In the class, we will explore these challenges and the best practices for effective social media marketing techniques.

    Title: Introducing Blue Ocean Strategy: How To Make Competition Irrelevant


    Companies are better off searching for ways to gain "uncontested market space" over competing with similar companies. These new spaces are described as "Blue Oceans", compared to the struggle for survival in bloody "Red Oceans" swarming with vicious competition. The Blue Ocean Strategy represents the simultaneous pursuit of high product differentiation and low cost, making competition irrelevant. A whole new way to look at new business opportunities.
