Outline and objectives

This course is designed so that students who often come into contact with familiar business topics on a daily basis can learn with interest the basics of business strategy theory, which is one of the core theories of business administration. All the students are expected to learn about corporate strategic management theory with interest by linking it with concrete examples. The Question is ”What is a business strategy?” After clarifying this question, the goal is to divide the genealogy of business strategy theory into two, positioning and capabilities, and to understand each representative theory based on examples. In the class, students will hold group exercises and discussions with the aim of deepening their understanding in a more practical manner.


・Understand the main basic theories of strategic management.
