Topic description

This topic introduces students to the knowledge and skills required to manage people and organisations in the global economy. It provides an overview of management in organisations and helps develop communication and organisational skills required in the professional workplace.

Educational aims

This topic aims to provide students with an introduction to principles, practices and issues relevant to the management of organisations. Since this is a core topic for several degrees, activities and assessments are designed to enable students to develop generic skills relevant to academic study and employment.

On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Recognise and use the basic language of management
  2. Explain basic management principles and related theory
  3. Relate basic management principles and theory to actual business scenarios
  4. Demonstrate basic effective (spoken and written) communication skills in an academic context
  5. Contribute to effective performance of groups and teams

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
