Managing in a Diverse and Global World
Business organizations and other critical organizations operate in both a market and
nonmarket environment. A major focus of the course is examining contextually global
diversity, inclusion, and multicultural issues through the lens of multiple dimensions

Successful, globally minded managers align the firm’s capabilities with the demands of
both its market and nonmarket environment. This course examines political, regulatory
and societal factors of influence. Students learn to analyze the motives for focused
intervention to better judge when and how political developments may affect business
or organization interest. It explores the rise of “private politics” (activists, civil society
networks, and NGOs), which are increasingly complementing conventional “public
politics.” This new plurality also opens exciting new nonmarket strategic opportunities
for profit and socially driven business, providing it with new potential allies. This
course stresses collective moral agency and the ethical dimensions of business and
management in such a global political economy. Students explore cross-cultural
perspectives on economics and business culture, and how to analyze and proactively
manage the nonmarket environment through integrated market and nonmarket
strategies. Cumulatively through class interaction and team activities students develop
strategies for managing aspects of global diversity and inclusion within the context of a
real organization opportunity

Credits: 2.00
BU.142.730
Strategic Human Capital

can be used to enhance an organization’s competitive capabilities. The goal will be to
understand how an organization can select, train, and retain the right employees, and
how it can effectively motivate them to make decisions that will allow the organization
to successfully implement its overall strategy. Students will explore and master topics
such as hiring and layoff decisions; human capital and on-the-job training; turnover; the
provision of incentives; the advantages and disadvantages of alternative compensation
schemes; objective and subjective performance evaluation; relative performance
evaluation; promotions and other career-based incentive schemes; team production
and team incentives; stock options and executive compensation; intrinsic and extrinsic
motivation; non-monetary compensation; and mandated benefits

Corporate Strategy
This course is concerned with the formulation and analysis of corporate strategy

Corporate strategy asks the question, ‘In what industries should a firm compete?’ These
are the objectives and policies that collectively determine how a business positions itself
to increase its returns and create economic value for its owners and stakeholders. In
this course, students learn analytical techniques for diagnosing the industrial landscape
of a business, a firm’s overall portfolio, and identifying and analyzing specific business

6
concepts that are useful for understanding, analyzing, and harnessing power and
political processes. But beyond discovering ways to extend your own power, influence,
and political skill, we will also uncover lessons about ways in which power and politics
can blind and deceive you, and how you might better navigate situations in which you
are up against relatively more powerful people or forces. We will use a range of learning
methods including theoretical and business articles, cases, exercises, assessments, and
simulations. We will cover a variety of topics ranging from political skills, bases of power
and influence, dangers of power, power and change, and leading with power

Strategy Consulting Practicum

“How should we compete?” Students will learn analytical techniques for diagnosing
the competitive position of a business, evaluate strategies, and identify and analyze
strategic options

Students integrate and apply previous course work to strategic challenges addressed
by organizational leaders. Analytic, integrative, and decision-making skills are also
developed as student teams confront these strategic challenges. Creativity and

to their clients
