The Strategy and Entrepreneurship discipline is comprised of three sub-fields:
The Strategic Management sub-field is designed to prepare you for a career in the strategic leadership role of a company. 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.
The International Business sub-field is designed to prepare you for a career in the global marketplace. It will introduce you to the different facets of managing an organization in the modern, global context of enterprise. Courses with an international focus are also found in other areas of discipline such as Marketing, Finance, and Management & Labour Studies.
The Entrepreneurship sub-field is designed to prepare you for a career as a business owner or 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.
Possible careers include: Strategic Planner, Business Analyst, International Marketing Manager, Business Developer, and Business Owner.
