Strategic Management - Global Strategy Concentration

Mentors: Professors Robert David and Omar Toulan

There are two options offered in the Strategic Management Concentration: Global Strategy and Social Business and Enterprise.

The 15 credit Concentration in Strategic Management - Global Strategy Option provides students with the skills necessary to understand contemporary businesses in a global context, and to explore the implications of business decisions for society and the environment. Since globalization affects organizations of all types, this concentration conveys the tools necessary to understand industry structures and competitive dynamics in a global context. It provides opportunities to analyze organizational capabilities and how to enhance them, and enables students to assess the requirements of doing business in different economic and political systems. Global Strategy adds an overarching, holistic and integrated perspective to the Faculty’s other concentrations and majors. Anticipated career trajectories include positions in consulting; strategic planning and analysis in multinationals and government agencies; as well as business development in new start-ups and small enterprises.
