Global Strategic Management

Module code: CORP 3501

Module description

This module aims primarily to ensure that students understand the nature and meaning of corporate strategy and are able to assess the strategic position of corporations operating in complex global markets.

In the early stages, the module emphasises concepts and tools necessary for critical strategic analysis. It then focuses on specific strategic issues and challenges that affect contemporary business operations, including for example, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, knowledge management. A strong focus will be placed on the management of change, organisational learning and strategy implementation.

Overall, this module focuses strongly on both formative and summative learning. Students give the opportunity to reflect on their experience to foster their critical appreciation of the discipline and evaluate its evolution in their own understanding of the topic. Their critical appreciation of strategic management will be questioned throughout the lecturing programme but also within assessed components, including the exam.
