Strategic Management

This course conveys concepts and methods in strategic management, with a focus on competitive strategy. Competitive strategy aims at analyzing and establishing position of firms within an industry, securing firm performance.

Corporate Strategy

The course Corporate Strategy focuses on the scope and diversity of a firm's activities. During the course, students will learn in what ways companies can organize and plan their business. Topics covered include: internationalization strategies, growth strategies, organizational design, alliances, and mergers & acquisitions. Having participated in the course Strategic Management by Prof. Georg von Krogh/Dr. Erden is an advantage but not a requirement.
