The Strategy area enables students to pursue the study of broad strategic issues related to business. The area encourages students to study strategy, both from the perspective of corporate managers making strategic decisions and organizing their resources to implement them, and from the perspective of those responsible for government regulatory policy or management of state-owned enterprises.
Strategy is the most interdisciplinary of the areas within the Business Faculty. The area includes members trained in strategy, economics, sociology, social psychology, philosophy, and law. Area members have published extensively in the areas of strategy, innovation, adoption of new technology, business ethics, natural resource policy, and business ideology. Faculty members have also written texts and provided extensive consultant research.
Strategy faculty teach courses in strategy and public policy in the Executive MBA, Management of Technology MBA, Global Asset and Wealth Management MBA, and undergraduate programs.
