SYLLABUS: MAN 6721 APPLIED STRATEGY AND BUSINESS POLICY Dr. Marshall Schminke, Spring 2011 UCF College of Business Executive Development Center Friday, Saturday, p.m. _____________________________________________________________________ ___ Welcome to MAN 6721, Applied Strategy and Business Policy. This is your capstone course, one that attempts to integrate what you have been learning over the course of the program. Its goals are threefold: 1) to familiarize you with the strategic analysis and 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. CLASS PROCESS The course is very conversational, very interactive, very hands-on. Most weeks begin with an open conversation about the experiences you have had in dealing with the week’s topic. From there, we move to a discussion of the key challenges involved in understanding and managing that aspect of business strategy. Finally, we present a set of tools aimed at helping to guide you through both.
