Management is the art and science of planning, coordinating and leading group efforts. It is the mobilizing of human and material resources to achieve organizational goals. Effective managers make socially responsible decisions both in the short and long term whilst providing inspiring and motivating leadership that can affect all levels of the organization.

This degree

After a common first year in business, you will major in Management to gain a sound understanding of the framework of organizational structures, be able to analyze quality and risk management, and analyze business strategies. Careers in management include company manager, operations manager, workforce planner, general manager: and strategic development executive.

You will also undertake a final-year capstone subject that lets you apply everything you've learned up to that point in collaboration with students from other disciplines. Plus, you have the option of applying for an internship that provides work-integrated learning.

What you will study

You will learn how to manage – strategically and ethically – both physical and intangible assets for organizational success and employee wellbeing. You will do this by gaining a sound understanding of the framework of organizational structures, including the local and international environments in which they operate. Final year subjects enable you to identify and analyze quality management systems, strategically manage risk and develop international business strategies.
