Objectives of the program

Contemporary managers deal with a range of complex issues. They are expected to make business decisions against a backdrop of changing economic and social events, while relating global changes in markets and business activities to local needs. Managers are increasingly expected to exercise strong ethical judgements, and be dedicated to a process of continuous learning about their work. Managers are also expected to work well with those around them in a variety of organisational structures from lose teams to highly formalised decision processes. Flexibility and the ability to work with others are critical capabilities. They are concerned with planning what the organisation will do, organising its activities, managing and developing staff, and co-ordinating a range of activities through the effective processing of information.
The Bachelor of Business: Management or BBus (Mgt) program is focused on developing a range of business capabilities which will assist you in relating your own skills and abilities to the needs of business and organisations.
