MGMT 885G.  Global Strategic Management   (3).

This course draws from the knowledge base that students accumulate in their accounting, economics, finance, management, operations, IT, and marketing classes. Knowledge from all the business disciplines and students' "real world" experiences are integrated in the course. The course emphasizes strategy formulation and implementation. The perspective taken is that of an organization’s general manager. The general manager may be a corporate CEO, a divisional chief executive, the head of an operating unit, or an owner/manager of a small business. This focus will be beneficial to both those that will function as general managers, and those that are and will be functional specialists. Any organizational position requires successful coordination and integration of activities and decisions to achieve organizational goals. Therefore, a thorough understanding of strategic issues allows functional managers to perform their tasks better.
