Strategy Concentration



The concentration in Strategy is designed for students looking for careers with leading strategy consulting firms and for students who are interested in strategic planning or general management positions requiring similar skills in established firms. Building on the broad foundation of the core curriculum, the concentration requires 6 additional electives that provide a deeper understanding of strategy and competitive environments. In addition, strategic consultants and strategic planners rely on a broad range of analytical skills and increasingly on 1 or more areas of specialized knowledge. The course requirements are built around these themes.
