MNGT 475 Strategic Management
Strategic Management is a senior-level capstone course designed to build on and integrate the knowledge and skills acquired during the business school curriculum.

Students will learn principal concepts, frameworks, and techniques of strategic management and will use written and oral communication skills to analyze and critically think about strategic problems, solutions, and decisions. This course requires students to formulate and apply business strategies through the analysis of cases and business simulations. Students will gain an understanding and appreciation of how strategy affects careers, company performance, and industry attractiveness.
