This paper describes an innovative approach to teach strategic management to undergraduate students. This new approach was designed to overcome the difficulties stemming from importing contents and materials primarily designed for the MBA market and not adapted to undergraduate cohorts. Based on our experience with executive education and the training and development programs of strategy consultants, we have devised an experiential approach focused on students understanding of and ability to apply the discipline’s fundamental concepts. We present the results of a survey of students expectations and experiences during the strategic management undergraduate capstone that provides support for our approach in terms of student satisfaction and learning.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
