Global Strategy I

This Global Strategy course will offer a broad-brush picture of the inherent tensions that global organizations encounter in formulating and implementing strategy such as localization versus standardization, and centralization versus decentralization. The treatment of issues transcends the typical multi-domestic or international framework to address concerns of a transnational nature. The emphasis is on practically relevant tools of global strategic analysis and conceptual frameworks designed to improve understanding of strategy making in the global context. Contemporary developments in joint ventures, strategic alliances, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and the management of the globally diversified organization will be addressed.
