Management major

The Management major provides you with a comprehensive understanding of managing organisations effectively within different economic, social, political and legal contexts. You will develop conceptual and practical skills in the areas of organisational behaviour; leadership; operations and project management; information systems management; learning and innovation; management in local and international environments; small business management; entrepreneurship; and strategic management.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) evaluate and understand key concepts, theories and practices important to the management of organisations; (2) diagnose organisational situations and problems, and identify appropriate managerial actions that will enhance organisational effectiveness; (3) understand principles of ethical behaviour and social responsibility as they apply to management decision making in contemporary organisations; (4) use effective communication skills, both written and oral; and (5) engage in research-based enquiry into management-related issues, topics and problems.

To plan the first year of your study without nominating a degree-specific major, you are advised to choose units that will pave the way to two or more degree-specific majors that are of interest to you. For examples of the choice of units available in first year, search the first-year study plans .

To fully understand the structure of an undergraduate course, read the course structure information and the Undergraduate Degree Course Rules.
