In today's business arena, strategic planning, marketing and analytical skills are demanded by all businesses. It is critical for a manager to have the ability to accurately assess the challenges and complexities of the firm's business environment, and to be versed in the skills and tools for devising strategic plans and to execute them in pursuing optimal strategic directions. This course provides students with the key theories, conceptual frameworks, and techniques that they will use when performing these managerial tasks. Specifically, the course is broken down into six modules: introduction to the management process; the strategic planning process; strategic marketing; organizational structure; human resources policies and management; and the business of the planning process. The course will also draw upon case studies from various industries. While the theoretical part focuses on fundamental factors affecting the fate of any business, the practical part helps students obtain insights into the operational determinants of business success through the analysis of specific cases.
