Course Descriptions

Strategic Management - MGMT 352

Strategic Management deals with the organization, management, and strategic positioning of the firm so as to gain a long-term competitive advantage. This course introduces and employs various analytical frameworks that help us identify the sources of competitive advantage from both an industry and firm perspective. By focusing on what makes some competitive strategies strong and viable, while others remain weak and vulnerable, we shall develop the ability to consider the impact of change and other important environmental forces on the opportunities for establishing and sustaining competitive advantage. 

The course is taught by John Burr, who has worked in 30 different countries doing marketing and strategy consulting for the DuPont Company. This is an opportunity to learn how the business operates and break the paradigm of understanding businesses from a U.S.-centric perspective. This course will be very interactive using games, field trips, and current examples to teach the tools of strategic management.

International Elective/Cultural Competency - MGMT 390

This course will be taught by on-site local faculty. Course title and content is TBD.
