Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The aim of the Strategic Management course is to provide you with both a strong theoretical understanding and a practical grasp of strategy development and execution. In this course, you will apply the theoretical insights to challenging case studies and in-class group exercises that serve to create a thorough foundation for dealing with strategic management.

The course intends to extend your knowledge to help you define and assess the quality of a firm’s competitive strategy. Nurturing a sound understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts inherent to strategic management should help you formulate, evaluate and implement strategies which help firms gain competitive advantage. The course emphasizes practical application of theory. This is sought through active utilization of theoretical frameworks to solve real world company issues.
