Anti-requisite(s): 21880 Leading People and Change



In this subject students explore the complexity of management, considering three interrelated issues: how to organize collaborative efforts; how to lead responsibly, enabling individuals and organizations to flourish; and how to cope with change, both planned and emergent. Using an experiential approach, students are asked to reflect on their experiences as members of organizations, and to use theories, ideas and diagnostic tools from management studies to expand their capacity to assess situations, consider alternatives and make managerial decisions. Moreover, students are invited to experiment with new ways of working and managing, and to reflect on what they have learnt in the process.

The subject includes a structured learning journey, alongside a repository of ideas in form of readings, lectures, interactive simulations, analytical tools, etcetera. Students are also able to use this repository of knowledge as a 'tool box' from which they can draw different resources, depending on their specific interests and needs. Reflecting UTS philosophy as a public university serving collective wellbeing, the subject also aims to prepare MBA students to be agents of global citizenship, promoting social justice and respect for diversity.
