Course Objectives: Students who successfully complete this course should have an understanding of core concepts of strategic management and the practical application of those concepts to strategic business situations. Course Framework: Strategic management requires the consideration and integration of multiple theories and practices from several scientific disciplines (economics, sociology, psychology) and several business fields (marketing, finance, management, operations, technology, international business, etc.). The course assumes students have some familiarity with these underlying concepts. The framework of the course is to draw on these multiple perspectives in addressing the strategic challenges faced by managers working in competitive businesses. Many of the concepts can also be applied to not-for-profit and government organizations with some limitations. Methods of Instruction:
