Omschrijving This course is aimed at enhancing students’ knowledge of the foundations of strategic management research. It is an introductory course especially indicated for future researchers in strategic management or related areas of inquiry, such as international business, organization theory, sociology of organizations, industrial organization, entrepreneurship, marketing strategy, and corporate finance.

Along the course, we will introduce and examine a broad range of theories and focus on different research topics informed by these theories. Overall, these theories and topics will help us to answer the fundamental question of strategic management research: Why firms differ in performance. Through the seminars, we will review the main explanations of performance differentials among firms, such as the industry-based view, the resource-based view, industry dynamics, corporate strategies, and issues related to the implementation of these strategies.
