Course Overview

Every healthy business, big or small, requires a clear strategy—a unifying objective—to assure its long-term competitiveness and value creation for shareholders. Without one, long-lasting sustainability, profitability and organisational alignment would be in jeopardy. This course introduces students to the main theories, concepts and models of business strategy and the importance of analysis in management practice. As part of their strategy design, students will learn to formulate strategic goals, values, vision and mission statements and understand how competition and industry both affect competitive advantage. Further, they will also learn how organisations create and sustain a cost-leadership edge and manage to differentiate from other firms in the marketplace. After completion of this course, students will be able to design, implement and analyse the effectiveness of a business strategy.
