Overview

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.

8 reasons to study Management at Murdoch

  • Work with organisations on real projects, and complete internships through our work integrated learning program. Some of our students have interned with local governments, Myer and RAC Arena.
  • Gain the kind of management, negotiation and problem-solving skills that will help you in any career path you choose, in a rapidly-changing world.
  • Solve real business problems and experience the many perspectives you’ll find in the workplace as you work with other commerce students who are specialising in other areas.
  • Combine your degree or take on a double major in another area to expand your career prospects even further. You could choose to double major in with Global Business and Politics giving you insights into both the business and political world. This option is only available in a Bachelor of Commerce – and only at Murdoch.
  • You might be eligible for our MasterClass program, where you could complete a postgraduate qualification while studying your undergraduate degree. We are the only Australian university to offer this opportunity.
  • We understand you learn by doing and that’s why our commerce assessments are based on real world learning and application rather than theory.
