Double Major Overview

Description

In the Global Business major, students will learn to identify the key external and internal factors that influence the management of global organisations, and demonstrate how major management functions and skills vary as a result of managing organisations globally. Students will be able to recognise why and how ethics and corporate social responsibility vary when managing organisations globally as well as identify the key contextual issues affecting the formulation and implementation of a global business venture, and articulate appropriate responses to specific global business issues. Students will demonstrate an understanding of how personal and cultural values are related and differ within and across countries, and evaluate how people and their consumption are shaped by their environment and personal experiences and communicate and work with people from diverse cultures;

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) Evaluate key concepts, theories and practices important to the management of multinational organisations; (2) Identify possible solutions for the unique challenges that stem from operating in different global contexts simultaneously; (3) Demonstrate an understanding of cross-country diversity with respect to cultural, economic, legal and political characteristics; (4) Demonstrate an understanding of how managing employees varies as a result of different cultural backgrounds; and (5) Explain how principles of ethical behaviour and social responsibility differ and are applied across different cultural contexts.

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.
