About this Course

In this course, Corporate Strategy you will learn how corporations create, capture, and maintain value, going beyond the management of a single line of business. It is thus a complement to (and should typically follow) a course on Business Strategy, which focuses on developing and sustaining competitive advantage for a single business unit.

  • Understand how corporations create and capture value as multi-business enterprises.
  • Learn tools and frameworks to assess choices regarding corporate scope, corporate transactions and global strategy.
