BMGT43320 Global Strategic Mgt

Academic Year 2023/2024

Strategic management helps practitioners to make sense of and respond to challenges faced when attempting to secure the long run viability of their organisations. In the first part of the module, we will examine a variety of analytical tools and perspectives that are seen to aid strategic decision-making. In so doing, we will examine important concepts such as industry structure, business models, competitive positioning, scope and direction of the organisation. In focusing specifically on international arenas, we will then proceed to examine some of the challenges associated with growth and expansion in international markets and will explore key considerations when attempting to structure and organise the international activities of large organisations.
