This highly interactive elective module complements your study of strategic management. It particularly addresses the strategic questions that face large multi-business groups and how these differ from the issues faced by single business firms. This module further addresses the reasons, benefits and boundaries of diversification strategies and critically evaluates approaches to managing the portfolio of the group. An important focus will also be on the role of the corporate centre for value creation, as well as the organisation design choices of large corporations. You will have the opportunity to work in groups to explore case studies of large multi-business firms.
