Why Study Strategy, Management, and Operations at the Busch School?

This area focuses on the essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes required of leaders in a business. Strategy examines the structural forces that shape competition in a market and the various business models that an enterprise may implement to create value for its stakeholders. Management focuses on the allocation of resources and methods of decision-making within the enterprise to optimize value for stakeholders. Operations explores how processes, procedures, and systems interact within an enterprise to fulfill customer promises and secure value for stakeholders.
