COMR 493 - Strategic Management in Business (formerly COMM 493)

This course is taught from the perspective of a senior manager. It is a “capstone” course in that it builds on the knowledge that you have acquired in the many business and economic courses that you have already studied. It places emphasis on approaches that have been proven to work effectively. It is an opportunity for you to experience first hand, and participate in, the type of environment that you will encounter in the business world.

Learning objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

  • be able to analyze a business situation using relevant tools and models effectively.

This change was made to distinguish Commerce courses taken for the minor from courses taken for the BCom program. This is an administrative change only; course content remains the same. COMM 493 and COMR 493 are equivalent; credit will be granted for only one of the two.
