This course relies heavily on the case method of instruction to apply strategic analyses and techniques. Students focus on the requirements for sustaining competitive advantage and the implications of these requirements for market positioning, diversification, acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate restructuring, and other decisions that can significantly affect firm value. This course also requires students to demonstrate significant business research and presentation skills by forming teams to analyze a strategic issue facing an actual firm. Recommendations based on that analysis are presented and defended orally and in writing and judged by a panel of professors and business leaders. Some sections of this course will be restricted to students admitted to specific degree programs. (Offered every semester.) 4 credits
