This course focuses on the functions and responsibilities of top executives in managing the entire enterprise rather than any specific functional area (marketing, finance, accounting, etc.). Students will be introduced to the literature in the field of strategic management and will learn various theoretical models and frameworks for effective formulation and implementation of corporate and business level strategies. The major purpose of this course is to enable students to identify various internal and external sources of competitive advantage and to develop strategy that builds on those advantages to create superior value for customers. Students will have an opportunity to apply various analytical tools and techniques to business simulations and case studies drawn from firms competing in a wide range of industries.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the 4th year of the Commerce Program.
