À propos du cours

In this course 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. Here, you will be able to better understand and learn the tools to analyze and manage decisions from a corporate-level perspective, which emphasizes the management of multiple businesses and multiple stakeholders. Examples of such decisions include vertical integration, diversification, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, international expansion, global strategy, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. You will: • 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. • Learn to analyze complex business situations and develop coherent corporate strategies. • Understand the role of corporate governance and stakeholder management in modern companies. This course is part of the iMBA offered by the University of Illinois, a flexible, fully-accredited online MBA at an incredibly competitive price.

Needs to structured a bit better.

Answers to discussions if provided will be very helpful and help analyse situations in the way instructor aims to.

The MIT Case readings, not 10min things, thos cases are all like 20 pages+!

I think the course lack of quizzes and exams and also have a lack of practice examples. It is so interesting but I fell you need to work more on it.

I needed to refresh my capabilities for a new role that I had just taken. The online course structure provided a great method for stepping back into the classroom. The information provided during the course was easy to follow and structed in a way that helped build upon the previous weeks learnings, which was great for ensuring I had a firm grasp of the concepts. I appreciated the insight provided by the instructors. This is a great course for those first getting started in strategy or those wishing to retool their skillset.

I can say that it is my first course at Coursera that I can enjoy. I like how professor Deepak Somaya taught us about corporate scope, corporate transaction and global business strategy. He bring some experts to enrich my understanding about learning materials. On the other hands, case study that was given to us also triggering. Fortunately, it much close to the industry where I work for so that it kind of another insight to me. Thanks to Coursera, I enjoy this course.

This was yet another fantastic course from GIES! The incisive delianation of key principles that count for effective execution of corporate strategy is something that I have truly appreacited in this course. The rich and ispiring case studies (Uber, Starbucks & Walt Disney) also went to afford me a very fulfiling learning experience. Thank you Prof. Deepak Somaya for the lectures delivered with profound intellectual depth, palpable humility and simplicity.

Vertical scope, horizontal one and M&A evaluation are very important topics. Both prof. Joe Mahoney and Deepak Somayaget this course up to date and applicable to daily job. Disney's business case is an excellent way of summarizing main topics.
