Strategy and Entrepreneurship

In the Strategy and Entrepreneurship area, students study the factors that drive firms’ fundamental strategic choices and the way such choices influence firm performance, including risk-taking, management of strategic innovation processes, strategy formation and implementation, behavioral understandings of competition, global strategy and entrepreneurial strategy. We embrace a wide variety of methodological approaches but share an emphasis on rigorous scholarship directed at understanding the processes that cause important strategic outcomes.
