Centers of Excellence
Supply Chain Management (CESCM)
The Center for Supply Chain Management (CESCM) gathers a critical mass of faculty, researchers and experts in the field "supply chain management" (SCM). The definition of SCM is interpreted broadly to cover all aspects of production, logistics and the supplier relations. It combines operations management, management science and industrial organization in a systematic attempt to understand, model and support the multi-level organizational behaviour. The research is in particular oriented toward empirical analysis, the economic and systemic modelling of inter-organizational relations; the study and development of methodologies and techniques for the decision support systems at all hierarchical levels of the chain; the study, modelling and optimization of systems of decentralized or distributed coordination.
Change, Innovation and Strategy (CRECIS)
The Center for Research in Entrepreneurial Change and Innovative Strategies (CRECIS) studies the intensification of competition, the opening of markets and the accelerated rhythm of innovation that have radically changed the environment of European companies, whatever their size or activity. Their strategic decisions and the way they are put to work within the company must be constantly revised; if not, they will become rapidly obsolete. This is the context in which the Strategy and Dynamics of Organizations centre of excellence is developing LSM’s expertise. This tackles the capacity of European company strategy to generate innovation and manage change. This can then be translated into long lasting competitive advantages.
Studies in Asset Management (CESAM)
The Center for Studies in Asset Management (CESAM) investigates the theory and practice of “Asset Management”. This includes portfolio management of financial as well as real assets. In line with recent trends in financial services, it includes assets such as traditional financial assets (debt and equity), real estate, private equity, pension assets and foreign exchange reserves. The Center covers research topics on asset management pertaining to asset pricing, volatility and investment, audit and controlling, risk management, corporate finance, international finance and mathematical finance.
Consumers and Marketing Strategy (CCMS)
The Center of Excellence on Consumers and Marketing Strategy (CCMS) studies questions related to consumer’s welfare and/or protection against some marketing practices are more and more often brought to the fore. To provide responses to these interrogations, research is needed, on consumers and on markets. This strong societal philosophy is the connecting link between actual and future activities of the CCMS’ members. Goods and services in profit and non-profit industries are studied and this, in national, European and international environments and for B2C and B2B markets.
Research on Information and Services Management and Engineering (PRISME)
The Pole of Research on Information and Services Management and Engineering (PRISME) has the ambition to cover the development and valorisation of competences related to the criticism and instalment of strategies, methodologies, processes and systems in Information Systems and Services Management. The Pole falls under the prospect of integrating transversally these competences to cover the stages, ethical and critical aspects of analyzing and realizing the disciplines considered under the terms IT and E-Business.
