Areas of Concentration: Strategy


"The strategy concentration is appropriate not just for those seeking careers in strategy consulting or in corporate strategic planning but for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of institutional purpose and the competitive landscape in which such purpose must be achieved, the concepts and tools available for analysis, and the challenges of bringing all functions of the organization together to achieve its purpose."

The strategy concentration is designed to equip you with the core concepts, frameworks, and techniques of strategic management. Strategic management is about managing the enterprise to achieve superior performance. Thus, you will learn how to identify the sources of profit available to the business enterprise, and to formulate and implement strategies that exploit these sources of profit.

Courses in the concentration will be analytical and will focus on senior management decisions that enhance profit maximization while taking into account the competitive response to those decisions. Students with a strategy concentration frequently go on to careers as consultants, entrepreneurs, and strategy analysts.
