About this course

In this course, you will learn how corporations create, capture, and maintain value, going beyond managing a single line of business. As such, it is a supplement to the business strategy course (and should generally be followed) that focuses on developing and maintaining a competitive advantage for an individual business unit. Here you can better understand and explore tools for analyzing and managing decisions from an enterprise-level perspective, with an emphasis on managing multiple companies and multiple stakeholders. Examples of such solutions include vertical integration, diversification, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, international expansion, global strategy, corporate governance, and corporate social responsibility.

• Explore tools and frameworks for evaluating options in relation to corporate space, corporate operations, and global strategy.
• Learn to analyze complex business situations and develop coherent corporate strategies.
• Understand the role of corporate governance and stakeholder management in modern companies.
