課程概述

As a required (strategy) course for IB junior/senior students, this course is to provide an analytical strategy framework for effectively managing organization(s) to create and realize values in a changing global environment. More specifically, this course encompasses three major elements that are central to the (general) management functions of a multinational corporation, upon which our course design is based; they are: (1) Building competitive advantages (i.e., strategy unit), (2) Transferring and configuring competitive advantages across boarder (i.e., global strategy unit), and (3) Organizing global competitiveness (i.e., organization unit). 

課程目標
To help students well capture these knowledge sets, we will address both
strategic and organizational principles that underlie the formation of firm-specific competitive advantages in the context of global management. Pedagogically, this course relies upon case-based learning and conscientious reading efforts. As a managerial course, your active participation and meaningful contribution to sustaining a good conversation throughout the whole semester would be a must. Overall, this course is to develop your competencies in strategic thinking and managerial problem-solving within the context of multinational management.
