Strategic Management Specialization

Program Aim

The Strategic Management specialization curriculum will equip students with the necessary skill and ability to analyze, formulate and evaluate organizational goals. Thus, enabling you to develop goals that are abreast with the dynamics of the business world; consequently, giving you the means to gain a competitive edge and improve market share. Strategic Management is the study of achieving short and long-term business objectives through the effective use of a company’s physical, intellectual, financial, and human resources. Strategic Management prepares students who can take a step back from managing individual projects and can see the full picture of where the company is heading, setting clear measurable goals and targets. Strategic Management overlaps with other Business disciplines, such as Business Administration, Finance, Marketing, Risk Management, Negotiation, and Statistics. Strategic Management explores various aspects, from critical decision-making to setting business goals, from creating plans to anticipating outcomes, from analysing risks to determining which external factors represent roadblocks, and everything in between.

Strategic Management has been designed to provide the skills for ongoing planning, analysis, and monitoring for a business to reach its goals. Learn to think strategically and manage change successfully. The programme also focuses on financial planning and managerial economics.

Strategic management is a study field that focuses on the continuous planning, monitoring, analysis, and assessment of all that is necessary for an organization to meet its goals and objectives. A Master of Business Administration degree in strategic management will help students to develop a critical understanding of the challenges that project executives face in designing and implementing strategy. They will also explore how a ‘Management of Projects’ approach leads to improved value-creation and effective outcomes. Graduates with Strategic Management Degrees often take up strategic positions in major multinational organizations across sectors and industries or even build and lead their own companies.
