Today’s business environment is characterized by increasing levels of complexity, competition, and change. Therefore, organizations must be designed to adapt quickly in order to survive. In this course, students apply business concepts and strategies to the design of organizations and the improvement of core business functions (e.g., operations management, marketing, finance and accounting, and information technology), in response to a rapidly changing external environment. In doing so, students consider the importance of aligning the design of an organization’s strategy, structure, culture, processes, and human resources practices to achieve organizational success. Students also explore topics such as product portfolio management, business process management, employer branding, quality management, and change management.
