Although not required, students will find that taking those courses first would enhance the learning experience. Residential topic will be "Navigating Unpredictable Markets": Nearly all modern competitive markets are dynamic—they go through boom/bust periods, or intense races for valuable strategic assets, followed by shakeouts. How can you navigate those unpredictable dynamics? How do you make strategic investments and bets when future market conditions are unknown? When is it a good idea to exit an unprofitable market, and when should you stay the course hoping for better times ahead? What common mistakes doom firms to failure when evaluating contingencies, or assessing investment opportunities? This course will take you through a set of highly experiential exercises, each pinned to a wide range of real-world applications, drawing out impactful lessons for managers facing dynamic and uncertain market conditions.
