This major provides students with a deep grounding in the basic logic of competitive advantage, premised on a careful analytical treatment of the distinct qualities and positions of individual firms and an understanding of broader competitive dynamics. This background would position students well for guiding strategy at both established and emerging enterprises, as well as prepare them for positions with consulting firms that work with firms in setting their strategies.
