Detailed description of content

Through this course, the student gains a critical insight into strategic management, including how the firm relates itself to the environment, through planning and organizing strategic processes. In recent years, notions of responsibility, ethics, and legitimacy, have moved from the periphery to becoming more central problems of an existential character. The course therefore aims to provide students with a broad understanding of strategic management and responsible leadership. It also aims to provide a range of tools of analysis with which they can analyze specific firms and their challenges, and develop strategic actions, that are legitimate, ethical, and responsible.
