Strategic Management Minor
Strategic management involves decisions about the set of goal-directed, coordinated commitments and actions that a firm undertakes to gain and sustain superior performance relative to competitors. It includes diagnosing the competitive challenges facing a firm, formulating strategies (including corporate, business, international, etc) to address the competitive challenges, and devising a coherent set of actions to implement a firm’s strategy.
Knowledge of strategic management complements students’ mastery of particular functional or operational areas, and allows Carlson graduates to understand how their functional roles and activities in a firm relate to the firm’s overall strategic objectives.
