Course Description

Strategic Management (MGMT 35200)

Why are some firms more successful than others? This is the fundamental question of strategy. This course analyzes the sources of competitive success among firms and develops knowledge and skills necessary to effectively analyze and formulate strategy, be it as a manager, a management consultant, or an investment banker. Strategic management examines the organizational structure, resources and capabilities, and the strategic position of the organization to create, capture and sustain competitive advantage.

We will learn how to rigorously analyze a firm's competitive environment, its internal resources, and functional-level, business-level and corporate-level strategies. Building upon this foundation of rigorous analysis, we will practice formulating well-thought out recommendations that are specific and actionable.

Success depends not only on the soundness of the formulated strategy, but also on effective implementation through appropriate organizational choices. This course focuses on strategic decisions, and with both the content of those decisions and the processes by which general managers position the businesses and allocate resources under conditions of uncertainty and competition. This course utilizes various tools, concepts, and analytical frameworks that enhance our ability to define and analyze strategic problems and to identify sources of competitive advantage from both an industry and firm-level perspective.

MGMT 39000 (International Elective)

This course will be taught by on site local faculty. Course title and content is TBD until further notice
