BUS 498 - Executing Business Strategy (3)

Taking the information from BUS 496  and using a computer simulation, students function as the top management team for a large, international, manufacturing firm. This experiential process allows students to review the theoretical constructs of strategic management and learn how to apply those constructs in a controlled competitive environment. Students successfully completing this course should be able to 1) effectively analyze a firm's performance in a controlled environment, 2) complete accurate, detailed written analyses of industry movements and individual firm performance within that industry, and 3) understand how the various components of a competitive environment interact and what strategic directions to take based on those interactions.
