Description:In this course, students will learn how to successfully conceive, position, and launch products, with special emphasis on strategic analysis, understanding market and competitive dynamics, and determining the best scope of company operations. Based off six weekly modules, students will view lectures, read The Strategist’s Toolkit and case studies, and take weekly quizzes. For an exam, students will submit a strategic analysis of an organization.

Review: “I did this course in parallel with my live ‘International Management’ and ‘Management and Strategy’ courses at KU Leuven. You won’t believe, but Coursera format seems to be much more effective in learning theoretical concepts, whereas case discussions are more productive live. For me personally course contents were quite easy, nevertheless engaging. Highly recommend for anyone planning a career in business.” For additional reviews of this course, click here.
