BMGT43510 Global Strategy

Academic Year 2022/2023

The course teaches participants to manage some of the challenges and opportunities of today’s global and innovation-driven environments. Technological changes and innovation are major forces characterizing our fast-changing global businesses and therefore students aspiring to be managers or entrepreneurs need to learn how companies strategically innovate to gain and sustain a competitive advantage. A main purpose of this course is to equip students with valuable and up-to-date theoretical frameworks and practical examples to take strategic decisions in similar globally competitive contexts.
Students will learn how major innovations affect industries and global competitive dynamics, how they can be used to penetrate new countries, and how managers and entrepreneurs can deploy internal resources and capabilities and external assets to navigate changes, compete, and cooperate in business ecosystems.
Selected case studies, a relevant business simulation, and other exercises will be used to develop students’ practical competences. A guest speaker will complement some of the learnings from this course. The outlined rich set of practical approaches will be combined with weekly readings of academic papers to help students develop a rigorous foundation for their future decisions. Students will put their abilities into practice through a trimester-long group project and a final individual writing of a short paper. The module will be highly interactive due to the relevance of its content but also because students are expected to engage with the rest of the class based on their individual readings and group work activities.
