Business Performance Frameworks - SMBA6121

Year - 2020

This unit equips students with an in-depth understanding of strategic frameworks, including their commercial application. The unit provides students with an enhanced understanding of the four main strategic framework categories, namely: (i) profitability frameworks, (ii) situational frameworks, (iii) mergers and acquisition frameworks, and (iv) capacity change frameworks. These strategic frameworks are delivered via an intensive teaching mode, using a case-study based delivery method. The unit exposes students to five Australian economic sectors, ensuring that MBA candidates understand how strategic frameworks can be applied in different contexts. This unit provides students with an opportunity to develop a multi-level perspective to complex commercial issues, apply theoretical concepts in multiple business sectors and integrate the business community in the delivery of the unit.
