Details for undergraduate courses
  • Honours core unit in Management [Bachelor of Commerce (Honours)]
Students engage in a reading and seminar program that covers one or more of the latest advanced topics in management. This extends and broadens the student's knowledge of the discipline beyond the area of the research thesis. The areas of management covered, including strategic management, information management and organisational behaviour, address recent developments in topics in the streams within the management major. The academic objective is for students to acquire advanced knowledge of recent research in the management discipline appropriate to honours level.
Students are able to (1) demonstrate the acquisition of up-to-date knowledge of management theories and research findings; (2) organise information and present arguments about recent theoretical developments in selected management topics; and (3) critically evaluate through oral and written communications an understanding of management research and its application to practical management problems.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) workshop participation; (2) seminar critiques; and (3) research reflections. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
