MGT100 Organisations and Management (8)

The subject offers an overview of management approaches and methods, and principles of organisational behaviour. This subject will build students' appreciation that there can be a variety of understanding surrounding organisation activities and events and that there will rarely be a single 'right way' in responding to any organisational situation. It examines various key management theories and models in the areas of planning, organising, communication, teamwork, ethics, corporate social responsibility, leadership, decision making, motivation and controlling. Students will apply theoretical concepts and models to management problems and issues in the context of the global business environment.
