Strategic Management & Organizational Theory
Students majoring in Strategic Management and Organizational Theory take courses in both areas because these are interrelated fields, with research and teaching needs that generally span both disciplines. Often faculty positions available to graduates are advertised as including both disciplines, so this is one of the reasons we pair them.
- The study of strategic management focuses on managing the total enterprise at the strategic level, aligning its unique characteristics and competencies with its external environment.
- Organizational theory explores the contextual variables that influence an organizationís choice of structure, including the external environment.
