Courses

Corporate Strategy:

The Corporate Strategy course focuses on the strategic management of the multi-business firm. Corporate Strategy addresses whether firms should enter a range of businesses, how those businesses should be entered (e.g., through internal development, alliance, acquisition, etc.), and how businesses can be synergistically combined to create value.

Business Strategy:

The Business Strategy course focuses on strategically managing individual businesses. Business Strategy issues include generating and sustaining competitive advantages, market positioning vis-à-vis competitors, and defending competitive market positions.

International Business:

The International Business course focuses on strategically managing the geographically diversified firm. International Business addresses several questions including why firms expand abroad, how firms expand abroad, how managing a multinational corporation (MNC) differs from managing a domestic corporation, and how managers cope with the multiple and often conflicting demands they face when managing cross-border operations.
