Introduce students to strategic management with the market-leading text that sets the standard for this course. Written by today's most prominent management scholars and award-winning instructors, Hitt/Ireland/Hoskisson's STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT: COMPETITIVENESS AND GLOBALIZATION, 13E provides an intellectually rich, yet practical, analysis of strategic management.
