Experience & Impact

Agility and being able to anticipate competitor moves is a business imperative in any global business, but especially in a growing economy such as India. The most dynamic leaders are those who execute strategy while bringing forth the full leadership capacity of their top team and beyond. These leaders also know how to simultaneously drive change while remaining vigilant about countermeasures by the competition.

Strategic Thinking and Leadership — India focuses on these competitive and leadership truths while providing a strategic framework for developing and sustaining competitive advantage in an increasingly global business environment.

You’ll not only gain the skills you need to lead and execute a strategic plan, but also benefit from the latest industry insights into why organizations succeed and fail in global markets. You can then put this new knowledge to the test in a leadership simulation.

Professor Harbir Singh, an expert in corporate strategy, applies his field-based research and the latest business insights to help you lead from a basis of market knowledge and, as a result, deliver greater shareholder value.

Through this highly engaging, real world–focused program, you’ll be able to gain new insights on business strategies to drive growth initiatives for the greatest competitive advantage, even as you become more proactive in anticipating and responding to competitor moves.

Session topics include:

  • Strategy Formulation and Development of Business Plans
  • Identifying, Creating, and Sustaining a Competitive Advantage
  • Corporate Growth via Acquisitions and Alliances
  • Selecting Leaders and Developing Talent

Key components of the program are the case discussions, where you’ll have the opportunity to apply techniques and tools learned in the classroom. You and your peers will also examine how to identify and pursue growth opportunities that put you ahead of your competitors.
