provides the opportunity for you to showcase a broad range of skills, culminating with the Great Capstone Case Competition at the end of the semester. Our intent is to provide one of the most practical, hands-on classes you’ve taken here at UCF. The course goals are threefold: 1) to familiarize you with the strategic planning side of running a business unit, 2) to integrate the various areas of expertise required to operate a business unit successfully, and 3) to provide an opportunity to practice using these tools in multiple settings. In all, the objective of this course is to adopt a strategic or long-term perspective of organizational effectiveness. The course is deliberately placed near the conclusion of your undergraduate education to provide you an opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills that you have learned in your other classes. Of special note is that the strategic management tools and concepts you’ll learn in this class are applicable to all organizations: large and small, public and private, for-profit and not-for-profit, and domestic and international. As such, you should find the content and skills developed in this class to be immediately useful to you, irrespective of what the next step is on your career path, or what type of organization you’ll be joining. Again, welcome to the class. You’re going to enjoy it! Lecture and Breakout Labs This course is taught in two separate classes, each of which meets once per week: (1) lecture and (2) the breakout lab.

Your lab instructor will show you how to apply the theories to real life situations, and will evaluate your work and assign grades. Specific questions about assignments, exams, and grades should be directed
