Strategy and Innovation


Strategy is a critical component of a business. Increasingly, a premium is placed on strategists who are able to exploit creativity and innovation to attain competitive advantage. In this Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship specialisation, we focus on creativity and innovation in strategy formulation and on the importance of formulation being complemented by a strong capability in strategy execution. We investigate these factors in both entrepreneurial and corporate settings. Electives cover topics such as opportunity identification and business start-ups, managing growth, business restructuring, business negotiations, intellectual property management, managing change, management consulting and the nature of innovative organisations.
