Course Overview

Just as the rewards of strategic alliances are many, so are the options and their associated legal, financial and operational implications. 

In a world of constrained resources and intense competition, the challenge of developing strategically focused, cooperative relationships lies in designing and managing them to create value and knowing and mitigating the factors can result in alliance failures. 

In this highly collaborative program, you’ll learn how to create and manage a variety of strategic alliances, both domestic and international, including joint ventures, licensing agreements, buyer-supplier partnerships, and consortia. 

You’ll examine the specific conditions under which alliances are preferred to other growth strategies, develop a better sense of the related costs and benefits, and leave with practical tools you can apply immediately.
