Overview

The Master of Management enables students to develop an enterprise-wide view of organisations embedded in a global society, integrating views from back-office/shop-floor to boardroom to town-hall meetings. Such a view is deemed essential to prizing the work, people, places and processes needed in a publicly scrutinized global business environment. Gain the knowledge, skills and conceptual frameworks to enable you to identify, question and, through deliberative processes, respond effectively to the complex and demanding issues. Public expectations of post-graduate managers are necessarily high in being prepared to make, defend and be morally accountable for their judgements impacting on people, communities and ecosystems.

This postgraduate course provides students with knowledge and experiences to enhance their professional and public responsibilities in leading and managing, and the stewardship of resources and enterprises. An innovative, flexible structure provides students with maximum choice in selecting subjects and programs of study tailored to meet their personal and professional needs.

The additional elective subject choices provide an opportunity to specialise more deeply in the management discipline and to further enhance students' skills, professional practice, specialist knowledge and capabilities.
