This Strategic Management course from University of Warwick introduces some of the main aspects of managing a business strategically in a global environment from a range of different perspectives, including social, political, technological, economic and global factors, in order to help managers of the future develop the capabilities to gain competitive advantage.


The Strategic Management course from University of Warwick explores a range of management aspects including strategic thinking, people management and cultures, risk management, ethics and corporate social responsibility, globalisation, leadership and communications and marketing from both theoretical and practical perspectives enabling students to learn how they can be applied to real life scenarios.


Diversity is an important and strategic issue for managers and leaders to consider in any organization or firm. Research finds that diversity on boards, and in organizations in general, in many cases is predictive of higher creativity and innovation, better brainstorming and decision-making, increased sales and revenues, and even higher organizational performance. 

These positive effects likely occur as a result of more and better talent, different viewpoints as well as cognitive and behavioral variability. Unfortunately, organizational diversity or organizations that attempt to increase the diversity often face a series of problems, including prejudice, harassment and discrimination.

In this week of the course, we aim to explore the reasons behind these negative effects and solutions shown to combat them, both from the individual and organizational perspectives. The course will thus focus on gender and non-gender stereotypes (i.e., where they come from, what they are, how they impact people) as the root cause of problems associated with diversity, the effects of these stereotypes (on both the holders of these stereotypes as well as the victims), and finally the solutions to these problems.

Programme Structure

Topics include:

  • Understanding gender stereotypes and their effects on women's own behaviour in organisations as well as others' attitudes and behaviours toward women
  • Understanding non gender stereotypes (e.g., age, race, culture, religion) and their effects on the victims
  • Overcoming obstacles related to women/minority status in organisations from the minorities' and managerial perspective.
