Unless special circumstances have been approved by the Director of Coursework Studies, the student must have successfully completed a minimum of two-thirds of the courses of any particular program (that is, eight courses of study in the case of a 12 course program), before enrolling in this course. This must include at least six core courses. It is also highly recommended that MGT8002 be the last course to complete in the degree.


As students draw closer to meeting the full requirements for graduating from the program, it is absolutely essential that they have the opportunity to integrate and synthesise the knowledge and competencies developed to date in relation to their professional and managerial responsibilities. This course allows students to identify and articulate the strategic issues that organisations are confronting. Students will be able to draw upon some of the critical concepts, techniques and information from other courses studied in order to develop informative and comprehensive responses to some of the key questions encountered in the strategic management of an organisation. This course provides a framework for analysis and integration by focusing attention on the development of an organisation's strategic directions, strategic capabilities and internal and external dynamics.
