Today's dynamic manufacturing environment demands certain skills to create and keep competitive advantage. This course is about manufacturing firms' strategic management, where both new and established methods and tools within strategy planning, implementation and evaluation are being used. By means of case studies, where students will go through each step in the strategic management process in a manufacturing firm, students get an understanding and a direct linkage between the course literature and the actual every day work in the industry.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
