BADM 590 CS - Seminar in Business Admin - Research Topics in Corp Strat
Special topics in the general area of business. Topics are selected by the instructor at the beginning of each term. Course Information: Approved for letter and S/U grading. May be repeated if topics vary; unlimited credit hours for graduate and professional students.
This seminar will focus on three broad topics: (a) the motivations for corporate strategy, (b) the implementation of corporate strategy, and (c) the value implications that result from the motivations and from the implementation of corporate strategy. That triplet of topics is based on the discord between the prevalence of firms that exercise active corporate strategies and the limited ability of extant academic research to prove that such strategies add value at all. Chronologically, the course will proceed from the classical accounts of corporate strategy, through the past peak of research activity in 1990s, to the recent efforts to revitalize the corporate strategy agenda.
