Major Overview

Description

This major covers the foundations of business and organisational management. This major prepares students for job readiness through a breadth of career and employability pathways relevant to today's dynamic business industries. This major provides students with a grounding in essential business knowledge across technical and theoretical disciplines, including business reporting, economics, marketing and management principles, as well as key practical communications and data literacy skills. To further enhance employability, a capstone experience will be provided to students to put their knowledge into practice through a range of options including internships, industry projects or work-integrated learning. This combination of technical knowledge and skills mean students will be well-equipped to enter a wide range of business organisations upon completion.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) evaluate key concepts, theories and practices important to Business Management; (2) diagnose business challenges, and identify appropriate managerial actions; (3) demonstrate effective communication skills, both written and oral; (4) demonstrate project management skills and ability to work productively in a group; (5) provide potential discipline-based solutions to a business; and (6) demonstrate understanding regarding principles of ethical behaviour, and/or cultural, social and sustainability issues.

Broadening guidelines

All students studying towards a Bachelor's Degree at UWA are required to Broaden their studies by completing a minimum of four units (24 points) of study outside their degree specific major. Broadening is your opportunity to explore other areas of interest, investigate new disciplines and knowledge paradigms and to shape your degree to suit your own aspirations and interests. Many of you will be able to undertake more than this minimum amount of broadening study and we encourage you to do so if this suits your aspirations. Over the next few months you will find here some broadening suggestions related to your degree-specific major. While we know that many students value guidance of this sort, these are only suggestions and students should not lose sight of the opportunity to explore that is afforded by your Broadening Choices. Advice can also be sought from your Allocated Student Advising Office.
