Management is about taking a leading role – planning what needs to be done to achieve organisational goals, organising the resources to reach those goals, motivating and mentoring people, and measuring performance, amongst other things.
At the School of Management, we aim to provide you with the skills you’ll need to tackle managerial and leadership roles in any industry or sector. Our graduates work as business managers, entrepreneurs, environmental business managers, foreign affairs officers, human resource managers, management consultants and more.
We’re engaged in the discovery, development and dissemination of management-related knowledge, with particular emphasis on developing a diversity of ideas, innovative and entrepreneurial approaches, and lifelong learning through our research, industry links, and regional and global alliances.
Our undergraduate, postgraduate and research programs are focused on services management, which is centrally important to the Australian and world economies. We place a strong emphasis on work-integrated learning, providing you with opportunities to engage with industry throughout your studies through initiatives such as real-life projects and internships.
We continue to evolve education and research in the field of management, focusing not only on the essential core areas but also on those of growing importance. This is why we provide courses in fields as diverse as entrepreneurship, international business and our new MBA (Global).
The School of Management strives to ensure all of our courses and research are relevant to industry and its needs. As a school, we continually seek to collaborate with industry in the pursuit of delivering the best possible outcomes for our graduates. We aim to deliver research that is relevant and useful, particularly in the globalised business environment.
Contributing to the practical and applied nature of our courses, we’ve developed strong connections to industry bodies and other professional organisations. As a result of these, you can benefit from professional placements and internships, as well as opportunities to undertake projects for real clients in your related field. You’ll have exciting opportunities to engage with industry while you’re still studying, giving you a professional edge that means you’ll graduate career-ready.
Our links with industry are further strengthened by our advisory board, comprised of business leaders in the management field. They help to keep us informed of the latest advancements in government and industry. Our courses are regularly revised and updated to reflect these developments, ensuring you’ll graduate with skills and knowledge relevant to the real world.
