COURSE OBJECTIVE
This course aims to prepare the student for a successful business career with a broad understanding of the importance and complexity of strategic decisions and the way they integrate other aspects of business operations. It deals with decisions which determine the future direction and effectiveness of an organisation. It uses the perspective of a general manager, not that of a functional area manager, and emphasises the organisation as a whole, not a sub-unit. It integrates the knowledge gained in previous courses and develops an awareness of the impact of external forces and of actions by the firm and its rivals on the firm\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s strategies. It focuses on the skills required of the general manager in diagnosing and finding solutions for critical problems in complex business situations and implementing them.
