This course is taught through team projects and simulations. It begins with an introduction to the simulated operations and strategic management principles and practice. A number of simulated companies, one for each team, are created for practice of strategy, policy, and integrated operations. Students will begin management of their simulated company once they have gathered working knowledge of the firm. The rest of strategic management, combined with business functional knowledge from areas such as production/operations, marketing, and finance, is then applied in managing the simulated company. A review of the functional skills is conducted as, when, and if needed. Use of strategic management cases is carried on in parallel to the reinforcement of the concepts and practice.
