The objective of this course is to introduce key concepts, tools, and principles of strategy formulation and implementation. Strategic Management covers the managerial decisions and actions that impact the performance and survival of companies. This course is focused on the information, analyses, organizational processes, and skills and managerial judgment that managers must use to position their businesses, determine boundaries of a firm and maximize the long-term profits in the face of competition and uncertainty.


Strategic Management is an interdisciplinary and integrative course, requiring broad views of environment that cover suppliers, buyers, competitors, government, technology and economy. In studying Strategic Management, the course draws on all concepts and ideas from the Introduction to Business Administration that you have taken last year.


Strategic Management takes a general management perspective, reflecting a firm as a whole, and exploring how strategies in each functional area are combined into a overall competitive strategy. The key strategic decisions in this course involve competitive strategies, boundary decisions, resource allocation and analyzing a firm.


By studying this course, we hope that students are able to learn the insights about how a firm effectively uses strategic management in the complex global environment in which most firms operate and try to outperform their competitors.
