Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Strategy 290 was very interesting and explored many business concepts related to creating and sustaining a competitive advantage. Professor Nagarajan was intense and expected a lot from the class, but if you come prepared and having done the readings, it can be a lot of fun.
While the course did focus on business strategy, Professor Nagarajan did not spend much time lecturing on these concepts. Most of class was spent discussing assigned readings and cases from which we could learn. This way of seeing how concepts can be applied for actual businesses was very effective and also interesting.

Advice for students:
The most important thing in this class is to be prepared and to participate. I would also recommend starting early on the group project and visiting office hours. However, even if you start early, be ready to spend a lot of time on the final paper and presentation as the deadline approaches.
