MGT 685 STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF THE ENTERPRISE

Synthesizing the conceptual knowledge acquired across the program, this capstone course serves as the culmination of the student's graduate studies and provides an opportunity to explore the entire organizational system; the strategic decisions necessary to determine an identity, its competitive advantage, scope, and positioning as well as the organization's placement in the industry, national, and global environments. In addition to sensitizing students to the real-world challenges businesses face at the macro-level, this course also examines the managerial decisions necessary to structure the organization to execute its strategy and the actions and processes needed to align, motive, and lead the human capital charged with implementing organizational change. In an activity-based approach to a contemporary business case, students will demonstrate their ability to assess organizational success in an ambiguous, dynamic, and complex 21st century environment.
