Strategy Execution Education in Graduate Management Education

The Business Architecture Guild and the MBA Roundtable conducted an online survey of graduate business schools to
accomplish the following:

  • Determine the propensity for strategic execution courses within graduate business programs
  • Gather documentation for strategic execution course curriculum taught in graduate business programs
  • Assess the business school professional community’s knowledge and understanding of business architecture

In July 2021, email invitations were sent to contacts in the MBA Roundtable distribution list. Two subsequent requests were made to participate in the research. When data collection concluded on July 26, 78 individuals representing 72 universities responded to the survey—a 4.6 percent and 17.6 percent response rate, respectively.

White Paper:  Strategy Execution: An Incomplete Component of Business Education?

The MBA Roundtable and Business Architecture Guild® have partnered to better understand how the topic of strategy execution is approached in graduate business education today and suggest possible reasons why strategy execution remains elusive in many organizations today.  Together we developed a short survey designed to better understand how strategy execution is taught in business graduate programs.  The main focus of the survey was to learn (a) if strategy execution was taught as a required component of business graduate programs and if so, (b) how strategy execution was taught in these programs and the associated topics covered.  Join us to learn more about the research results along with an additional review of the strategy course syllabi that were submitted as part of the survey as we try to address the question - Strategy Execution: An Incomplete Component of Business Education?
