Strategy and Entrepreneurship
Examining company competitiveness
As Strategic and Entrepreneurship faculty, we focus on how organisations can create and sustain superior competitive performance.
Our group provides an integrated perspective on Strategy and Entrepreneurship. We do this by combining strategy tools and frameworks with an understanding of the process of strategy making and the working of general management.
Topics of interest in our research
- innovation and entrepreneurship within large firms
- the theory of the firm and corporate scope
- technological change and its impact on firm strategy and industry structure
- management of multinational corporations
- behavioural and cognitive foundations of strategy
- organisational learning
- the impact of informal and formal structures on firm performance.
