Competition & Strategy

Competition and Strategy
This course addresses issues relevant to the central questions of competition among and strategies used by successful business and social organizations.

The course couples the introduction of relevant concepts and analytical tools for industry and competitive analysis with their application to real-world case studies in a variety of industries. Students will be expected to develop a sophisticated understanding of the forces that drive competition and success through applied economic analysis, extensive public speaking and presentation practice and venture consulting engagements with early-stage Vermont-based organizations.
