Major Strategic Management (66 credits)

Offered by: Management     Degree: Bachelor of Commerce

Program Requirements

The Strategic Management Major combines traditional topics in strategic management, such as competition and globalization, with attention to pressing social, and environmental challenges. Since the activities of contemporary businesses can no longer be considered separately from these challenges, the Major is intended to foster a holistic view of management practice. Students will be encouraged to consider strategy formation and change for large corporations, small businesses, and social enterprises within their economic, social and environmental contexts. Because Strategic Management is a broad subject area, students are given flexibility to tailor this Major to their interests. Anticipated career trajectories are diverse, and include positions in management consulting, business development in new start-ups and small businesses; and strategic planning and analysis in large multinationals, NGOs, international organizations, and government agencies.

All BCom students take a Core curriculum in addition to this Major.
