This will require you to thoroughly understand the course material, as well as to integrate and apply the skills you have acquired in your core courses to a variety of business situations. The goal is to develop broad, strategic decision-making skills and a generalist outlook. Such skills are important even for lower and mid-level participants in organizations, because they enable them to better understand senior management's overall goals and objectives. In support of the primary objective, students will gain an appreciation of how various components of the firm work together to achieve the organization’s goals. Students will also develop diagnostic and analytical skills to evaluate a firm’s current position and its strategy. Finally, students will have the opportunity to practice and refine their skills in effective oral and written communication. COURSE METHODOLOGY: This course uses a variety of approaches including readings from texts and business periodicals, group projects, presentations, and written assignments in combination with experiential learning associated with case studies and classroom exercises.
