All organisations have a strategy they follow and the Strategic Management course from University of Warwick views you as the manager who needs to understand the key analytical tools and the fundamental strategies to help your firm compete effectively.


We live in a connected globalised world where social, technological and political changes are impacting on all our lives and impact on a firm’s strategic thinking: we will look at what these are and how firms should or could respond strategically.

Strategy is also about interpreting what the analytical tools tell us, so we will help develop you - as future managers and leaders – with the skills that will be necessary so that firms can navigate the increasingly complex and uncertain world and still remain competitive.

The Strategic Management course from University of Warwick is designed to intertwine theoretical and practical perspectives, enabling you to apply theory to real life scenarios.
