MGMT 8139 Special Topics: Cross-Border Strategic Alliances (Fall: 3 )
This course focuses on the increasingly important topic of strategic collaboration among organizations seeking to create greater value and to position themselves more favorably in a highly competitive and rapidly changing world. Successful firms in dynamic and evolving industries recognize the benefits of collaborating with other players in their value net (e.g., suppliers, customers and even competitors) in order to access important capabilities or knowledge necessary for achieving their strategic goals in an effective and timely manner. They also recognize that forming and executing these alliances successfully presents enormous challenges. Most of the larger and strategically thinking firms have established high-level units within their organization to plan and supervise their strategic alliances. They see this capability as being a necessary core competence.
