Inhoud vak

In today’s international environment, firms are increasingly faced with
complex societal problems that force them to rethink how they interact
with stakeholders – including, among others, competitors, international
business partners, employees, customers, civil society organizations and
activist organizations. In this course, we focus on how firms should
strategically engage with stakeholders, for example in order to create
responsible solutions for pressing societal challenges. To engage with
stakeholders, managers may need to apply knowledge from a variety of
scientific fields including strategy, psychology and international
management, and they need to cultivate certain interpersonal skills.

The course will increase students’ knowledge, insights and skills by
offering lectures and tutorials focusing on the following themes:

- Why stakeholder management is necessary. In these lectures, we cover
societal arguments for managing stakeholders, as well as instrumental
arguments – this is, the business case – for managing stakeholders.
- Who are the stakeholders. In these lectures, we identify, analyze, map
and prioritize the stakeholders, depending on the specific purpose of a
stakeholder management project.
- How to manage stakeholders. In these lectures, we cover different
kinds of interaction formats with stakeholders.
- In tutorials, students apply acquired knowledge to a real-world case
in a stakeholder-oriented firm or in a multi-stakeholder initiative.
Students can choose their own project or work on a pre-existing project.
