Corporate Development (CDEV)
Corporate development is about managing the scope of a firm’s activities. In what businesses should the firm compete? How can value be created across the firm’s businesses? What is the best path for firm growth – internal development, acquisitions, or alliances? The goal of this mini-course is to equip participants with tools and frameworks to help answer these and other questions related to strategies, decisions, and processes of managing firm scope. Specific topics include vertical integration, strategic alliances, diversification, mergers and acquisitions, and divestitures with an emphasis on managerial issues rather than on transaction features. The focus will be on established firms and the perspective will be an internal one that centers on the resources and capabilities they use to compete. Class sessions include case analyses, interactive lectures, and presentations. The course is designed to be of particular interest to students pursuing careers in corporate strategy and business development, general management, management consulting, or as investment analysts.
