DEVELOP YOUR EDGE AS A STRATEGIC THINKER AND VISIONARY LEADER

While specialist training is helpful in the early- and middle-phases of a career, complementary generalist training allows an aspiring mid-level manager to transit into the upper ranks of management within a company. Unlike other MS specializations, Lubin's Strategic Management program provides students with the skills to become effective general managers:

  • Understanding of general organizational performance
  • Knowledge of the interplay of competitive, corporate, global, and public-sector strategy
  • Soft skills to subjectively analyze a company's outlook
  • Familiarity with strategy tools by top consulting companies

Gain Specialized Skills And Practical Experience

The MS in Strategic Management program is well suited for those who aspire to senior executive positions. In this program, students gain the tacit skills of subjective decision making with a generalist perspective. Senior managers routinely face complex business problems that cannot be solved through specialized formulae. Those specialists who are able to also acquire a generalist perspective are likely to become strong candidates to transition from senior functional managers to corporate executives. The Lubin MS in Strategic Management offers:

  • Broad business analysis skills, such as framing abstract problems and interpreting competitor signals
  • Decision-making skills to subjectively assess complex problems,
  • A generalist perspective (in contrast to a specialist perspective)
  • Speed to completion
