Assessment and permitted materials

Classroom participation is immanently relevant for examination ("dieser Kurs ist eine Lehrveranstaltung mit immanentem Prüfungscharakter"). Every topic will be additionally covered by asking students to work on take-home problems. These will be available via the net and are relevant for the exams in addition to the material provided as lectures. Exams will be open-book. To pass the course, students must collect at least half of the total points on the final exam.
Make-up exams are only available for students on sick leave (documented by immediately handing in a doctor s sickness note at the chair s office) or leaves supported by formal decision of the university, the faculty, and/or the institute. A passing grade may not be granted if the student misses more than 10% of the total class time.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This course focuses on the strategic challenges confronting firms that operate in the global economy. A firm s strategy is its "theory" of how to gain competitive advantage and compete successfully in the marketplace and strategic management is the process that managers, especially executives, use to develop and implement a firm& s strategy. Our objective is to have an enhanced understanding of the most fundamental question in strategic management: What determines the international success and failure of companies?
