Healthcare Strategy (STRT-443-0)
1.00 Credit
TCE BidStats

Description:

This course delves into the strategic issues faced by healthcare firms. We will use concepts from the core strategy course (STRT-431) as an organizing framework, and discuss where and why the healthcare sector deviates from the norm. For example, what is the role of competitive positioning when quality is so difficult to measure? How can you remain profitable if you compete against not-for-profits who don't face taxes?

Because a great deal of healthcare strategy relies on understanding the nitty-gritty of particular industries, we will spend time learning about several of these, including health insurance, hospitals, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. Although our focus is on private firms in the U.S., we will (of necessity) be discussing the role of the government in regulating and providing healthcare, and (time permitting) discuss some international issues. This is a lecture and case-based discussion course with group projects and a final exam.
