The subject examines the history and origins of management theory and application in the workplace. As this subject is linked to work placement, students are able to understand management theory and the application to real-world settings. During the subject students are exposed to managing through technological disruption, the impact of globalisation, managing diversity and changing concepts of theory and practice. Students undertake a major work-based assignment involving research in their sponsoring organisation, and apply the management theory studied to deliver a report and present to industry and peers on solutions found. Students submit a written assignment and present their work, either in person or via an audio visual presentation. The subject provides an understanding of professional, ethical and legal requirements when working in the corporate world.
