A brand new course covering the core areas of strategic management

New course, coming soon in spring 2020!

The Developing and Executing Strategy course is the capstone course in the online MBA programme

This course covers the core areas of strategic management and uses the general management setting to integrate ideas across the core disciplines covered in other MBA core courses. Developing and Executing Strategy begins by examining the evolution of management and academic thinking around strategy and strategic management over the past 50 years, reviews the diversity of contemporary strategy theory and practice and examines the role of strategy in the management of different types of organisations.

The course then examines a variety of aspects of strategy, such as strategic intent, analysis, strategic options and implementation. At each stage the links with other management disciplines, such as leadership, organisational behaviour, economics, marketing and finance are considered. Finally an integrative framework for strategic decision-making is presented, which facilitates a holistic approach to complex business and management issues.

Topics include:

Introduction to Strategy and Strategists
Strategic Intent
Strategic Issue Diagnosis 
Interpreting and Analysing the Environment
Analysing the Organisation
Generating, Selecting and Evaluating Strategic Options
Strategy Implementation and Practice

The course encourages students to think and operate at the strategic level in a range of dynamic settings through integration of ideas across core business disciplines.
