This course includes a full set of lecture notes, based on the two course textbooks. Both texts are co-authored by Professor Hax. Examples of student projects are also available in the assignments section.
This half-semester course is intended to be an extension of course 15.902, Strategic Management I, with the purpose of allowing the students to experience an in-depth application of the concepts and frameworks of strategic management. Throughout the course, Prof. Hax will discuss the appropriate methodologies, concepts, and tools pertinent to strategic analyses and will illustrate their use by discussing many applications in real-life settings, drawn from his own personal experiences.
