Management used to be about organising, directing and controlling – but the world has changed. Today’s managers are facing new challenges, often with teams working across a range of locations and a constantly changing set of challenges to handle.
You’ll learn how to identify opportunities, assess challenges and find the best solutions to real-world management issues. You’ll work with organisations on real projects to develop the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful manager.
Five out of the top 10 highest paying jobs in WA are in management roles*. But if money is not your main motivation, you can use your management degree to follow an exciting career path and make a real difference to not for profit and charity organisations across the world.
