To succeed in the future, managers must develop the resources and capabilities needed to gain and sustain advantage in competitive markets—traditional and emerging. The way in which organizations attempt to develop such competitive advantage constitutes the essence of their strategy.
This course introduces the concept of strategic management through readings, discussion, and case analyses, and considers the basic direction and goals of an organization, the environment (social, political, technological, economic, and global factors), industry and market structure, and organizational strengths and weaknesses. The emphasis is on the development and successful implementation of strategy in different types of firms across industries.
Quantitative Method
Maksym Obrizan
Ph.D., Senior Economist, KEI

In our data-driven world, it is hard to imagine a modern manager who does not know the basic tools of quantitative analysis. The course will include a necessary minimum of theory (30% of the time) and a lot of practical examples using real data from business, management, and finance. We will begin with a motivational example of forecasting sales using Excel Add-in. Then we will learn how to summarize data and build informative graphs.

We will next briefly discuss the probability theory and mechanics behind Ordinary Linear Squares (OLS) regression. Linear Regression is a powerful quantitative method which will be covered in depth using multiple datasets from Harvard Business Publishing. Then we will consider two extensions to regression: linear probability model to analyze binary data and time series models. The course will end with a brief introduction of advanced topics of big data analysis in R/RStudio that will lay down a foundation for future independent learning by the most motivated students.
