Top Courses in Strategy

Obtaining an education in strategy might sound like a person is actually preparing for battle. Indeed, the academic study of strategy, strategic design, and strategic management are similar to deploying troops. In a nutshell, this coursework is centered on using resources wisely.

This may still leave you wondering, “What is a course in strategy?” In order to answer that, you must first understand how vital the corporate and managerial decision making process is to the world’s economy. Strategic principles are the guiding factors that allow small businesses, all the way up to huge conglomerates, to make the best choices concerning their finite resources. A strategy course is how degree seekers and individuals can learn about these expanding principles.

Even for people who are not looking for work as a strategist, taking a course in this discipline is great for anyone who is business minded. Strategic concepts can be applied to almost any field of work. However, many of the more desirable courses are geared toward post-graduate studies, which may require pre-requisites.

As someone interested in strategy, students will want to know how much these courses cost so they can balance their own budget resources. In order to find out, it is best to ask the admissions office of the school that offers the course directly for an accurate quote.

There are many careers that draw on the concepts taught in strategy courses, even if one does not wish to become a marketing strategist. When pursuing any level of business management position, a solid understanding of resource allocation and design strategy is a feather in the cap of the applicant.

 

No matter where you live or where you wish to study, the most flexible educational option is taking an online class in strategy. This allows students to get as varied and complete an education as possible, while also working around their own schedules. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The R820 “Strategy” course discusses the main stages of the strategic process: strategic analysis, strategic choice and implementation of the strategy, as well as the most important aspects of the strategies of modern organizations that allow them to achieve competitive advantages.

MBA Strategy Course (AMBA Accreditation)Duration of study - 6 months.Field School 3 days

The purpose of the course is not limited to presenting the basics for strategic analysis and planning. Strategic analysis methods have long been available in the open market. Theories and models are tested in practice: new ideas are put forward and developed, and those that lose their value are discarded. But knowledge of these models, concepts and methods, even extensive and modern, is not enough to gain advantages over managers of other organizations, who also strive to be well informed. Of greater importance is your ability to apply theoretical knowledge in practice, showing realism and rigor of thinking, a flexible approach to information processing, a critical approach to ideas and data, and, finally, intuition and innovative thinking. In a word, showing truly strategic thinking. Therefore, the main goal of this course is to improve the quality of your strategic thinking through the acquisition of the necessary knowledge and the development of relevant skills.... [-]

Target Audience

Lean and Six Sigma are quality improvement methodologies structured to reduce waste and product or service failure rates to a negligible level. Six Sigma companies typically spend less than five per cent of their revenues addressing and repairing quality problems.

The Six Sigma process encompasses all aspects of a business; including management, service delivery, and design, production and customer satisfaction. As a philosophy, Six Sigma drives business culture and requires a nearly flawless execution of key processes, making Six Sigma a high standard for companies and individuals to achieve. By reducing process variation, Six Sigma frees an organization to focus on improving process capability. As sigma levels increase, the cost of poor quality decreases and profitability increases. This is why Six Sigma is highly associated with the delivery of consistent, world-class quality.... [-]

Too often, managers treat pricing as a tactical problem in financial analysis or sales management. In fact, pricing products and services is a strategic problem that requires coordination of many functional areas. The ability to manage effective pricing affects a company's growth and profitability more quickly and directly than any other strategic decision.

During this program participants will learn to:

Standardize discounting criteria to enable salespeople to respond more quickly and consistently with price offers that meet customers' needs. Evaluate the real financial implications of pricing decisions. Use pricing strategically to guide a business to long-term profitability, rather than reactively to solve short-term problems. Determine when it makes sense to compete on price and when it does not. Determine which value-added alternatives to price competition are appropriate for your business. ... [-]
