Description: The central concern of strategic management is to help companies succeed in competitive environments. Hence, the purpose of the course is to expose students to core concepts, ideas and analytical techniques that can be used to create sustainable advantage and growth in difficult competitive environments. The perspective adopted is that of a general manager who has overall responsibility for the performance of the firm as whole. To this end, the course will attempt to build students’ ability to develop, evaluate, and implement value-creating strategies at the business and corporate level. In doing so, the course will not only introduce new or advanced concepts in strategy, but also review and build upon some of the concepts students have already studied in the first core course in strategy. Given the integrative nature of strategic management, we shall attempt to establish links with important concepts that students have been exposed to in other functional areas.
