The programme shall address the different facets of business and its operation including strategic understanding of the legal environment to improve a firm’s competitive advantage, leveraging regulatory framework in designing strategies to differentiate in a dynamic and disruptive environment, minimize organizational and financial risks and other aspects. Having a reasonable understanding of the regulatory framework will help the manager/executive in designing the strategies and counter strategies for competitive advantage.
