This course integrates the student’s academic and professional experiences with the purpose of enhancing her/his capacity to formulate and implement successful global strategies. Its basic methods are discussion of cases and a project. The cases focus on the skills, knowledge, and expertise appropriate to a leader’s role, functions, and expected contributions to the corporation and society at large. As a result, students will enhance their capacity to (1) creatively identify alternative courses of action, (2) objectively and thoroughly assess these options’ pros and cons, and (3) convincingly argue and support their conclusions and recommendations. The project has two components. In the first, team members identify key factors shaping the future structure and competitive behavior of a global industry; and in the second, each student does a strategic audit of a company within this industry, with the purpose of presenting and defending strategic recommendations to the company’s board of directors.
Students must earn a grade of B or higher to use this class for academic credit towards graduation. If a B- or lower is earned, the student must retake BA B850.
Prerequisites: MGT B711, FIN B700, MKT B700
