A theme for the term

Somewhat coincidentally, four of the seven subjects I have selected in this term together form a theme - one of exploring the very basis of a business enterprise and investigating the 'deep determinants' of the growth of both a business in particular, and an economy in general. A course in strategy called Applied Theories in Strategy and Competition deals with various theories which try to establish a basis for the existence of the firm and the managerial actions carried out. Corporate Restructuring and Mergers & Acquisitions look at the basis of growth strategies of firms and particular ways in which such growth may be achieved, from a financial and strategic point of view, respectively. Finally, Business Environment looks at the fundamental forces in the environment of a business enterprise which affect its managerial actions.
