ENM309 Managing Projects and Resources (8)

Abstract

This subject focuses on the critical performance outcomes, skills, and knowledge required to work effectively within an organisation or business environment. Its focus is teaching critical and strategic thinking regarding the allocation of resources, quality assurance, and project management. It is conducted as a role play where students apply their prior learning in environmental studies to the cut and thrust of day to day management. As such it is a capstone subject (i.e. a subject that integrates your prior learning in other subjects) and should be taken towards the end of a student's candidature. There is no residential school associated with the subject and on completion, students have a range of administrative skills and an in-depth understanding what it means to be a professional in terms of their vocational aspirations.
