What will I learn?

Do you see yourself making decisions that influence organisational direction?

Business leaders need to know how to anticipate, formulate, resolve and communicate high-level strategies within an organisation. The Bachelor of Business (Leadership and Management) prepares students for specific managerial responsibilities. Students will be given direction and integrated exposure (via Work Integrated Learning) towards important leadership and management concepts. Students will study the theories, principles, processes and practices of strategic management, change management, business ethics and organisational analysis.

The Bachelor of Business (Leadership and Management) aims to equip students with high level career and work-ready skills in communication, problem solving, negotiation, teambuilding, organisational analysis and strategic thinking skills. Students are prepared for careers in the management of large, medium and small organisations, in the private and government sectors, both domestically and internationally.

The course is structured to provides students the opportunity at each year level of the course to apply disciplinary knowledge and skills, through individual work and group work to research, analyse and resolve global, ethical, sustainability, entrepreneurial and leadership challenges, typical of those facing business today.

The course is delivered in a context of globalisation, business sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical behaviour.
