MGMT 8108 Corporate Strategy (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The Strategic Management course focuses on the creation of long-term competitive advantage in companies with a single primary line of business. Corporate Strategy extends those principles to explore strategies of multi-business organizations. The course will take the perspective of the CEO and senior management team whose primary job is to create shareholder value, and addresses questions such as: which businesses should be part of our portfolio? How should we shape that portfolio through M&A and divestitures? How do balance sheet realities, private equity alternatives, and activist investors impact our strategic choices? How do we develop and implement strategy in multi-business companies.
