Program Overview

This program focuses on developing the ability to take a high-level, strategic view of the organization and how an organization gains and sustains competitive advantage over the long term.

We next turn to the ability of the firm to develop resources and capabilities that enable it to gain competitive advantage in dynamic markets.
