MANAGEMENT Vision and leadership for people and organisations
WHY STUDY MANAGEMENT? Discover how to use management skills to improve communication, lead teams, manage projects and adapt to change, develop people, set business strategy and navigate the effects of technological change. WHAT IS MANAGEMENT? In today’s dynamic and global business environment, management is vital to organisational success and employee wellbeing. Managers must provide vision and leadership to develop and motivate employees to work together towards sustainable organisational success. People are an organisation’s most important asset. Managers lead by inspiring teams to maximise their performance to achieve individual and organisational goals. A strong management team can be the difference between a business that struggles to function efficiently and one that is successful and has a great work culture. The role of a manager varies according to their level and the industry they work in, but it typically involves providing leadership, setting business goals and objectives, finding and retaining the right staff and allocating resources.
WHERE WILL MANAGEMENT TAKE YOU? Studying management will prepare you for a leadership role, in business or government, or the not-for-profit sector, social enterprise as a start-up entrepreneur, an executive, team leader, or small business owner. Managers offer organisations strategic and visionary thinking, confident decision-making in difficult circumstances and can manage relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including employees. Many of our graduates go on to play significant roles in business management, human resource management, business administration and commerce, or establish and run their own businesses.

“As part of my degree, I’ve been able to study a range of interesting subjects. In Marketing, I’ve learnt about retail, brand management, sales and distribution and in Management; human resources and inclusion diversity. I recently worked on a project where I helped leverage an organisation’s work culture and human capital. It’s made me passionate about inclusiveness and diversity and think of more ways to foster community in my everyday life and work. The academics at Monash facilitate very open discussions on topics, rather than repeating what textbooks say, and I think that really enhances students’ learning experience. Through flipped classrooms, problem-based learning and internships, there’s a definite focus on understanding business in a practical sense. I’m about to learn about business strategy and events project management, and I can’t wait to get started.” JENNY HOANG Bachelor of Business Administration majoring in Marketing and Communications and Management practice
