Strategic Management (3) Issues that influence the competitive performance of the firm are identified and examined.
MGMT 471 Strategic Management (3)
This course focuses on the management of the firm using a strategic perspective. The strategic perspective emphasizes the firm as the unit of analysis (e.g., analyzing how a firm competes in its industry), and it addresses key decisions that have a long-term impact on the structure and performance of the organization (e.g., diversifying into a new business or changing the company's strategy). The course draws heavily on prior business courses in accounting, marketing, finance, and international management. Key topics include industry analysis, competitor analysis, company analysis, corporate-level strategy, business-level strategy, strategy implementation, and firm performance. The course is normally taught using the case methods, but the course may include a computer simulation and/or oral group presentations.
