Strategy and Entrepreneurship

The Strategy and Entrepreneurship discipline is designed to prepare you for a career in the strategic leadership role of a company, a business owner, or a corporate manager.

You will study all aspects of independent enterprise, including Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship and New Venture Formation. The courses studied do not limit you solely to a career as a business owner; there are many facets of the program that apply to different aspects of management, including product or business development and management techniques that are just as valuable within a large corporation as they are in an independent business venture. Our program has a broad range of foci, touching upon marketing, finance, and management, aimed at having students analyze case studies from the point of view of a CEO. You will study topics such as business development (including expansion or acquisitions), competitive intelligence, and strategic analysis & research.

Students interested in Strategy & Entrepreneurship can specialize in the area or enrol in individual courses.
