This course takes a deep-dive into Strategy and Strategic Management, which we understand the theory of how a firm competes successfully against (domestic and international) rivals. In close connection to the scholarly discipline of strategy, this course will focus on the strategic decisions managers take on the corporate and business-unit level directed at improving organizational-level outcomes, primarily performance. We will get familiar with the process of strategy formation; acknowledge the different strategic issues that arise at different levels inside multi-business firms; and learn to apply frameworks and theoretical perspective that allow collecting and synthesizing relevant information on the internal and external factors that shape firm strategy and performance.
