Managing Connected Enterprises (EMBA6003)


Today's business leaders need to be able to operate in an interconnected business world. They not only need to understand the fundamentals of managing a business (strategy, marketing, accounting, finance, operations, human resource management, and international business), they need to understand how to operate in a world with high levels of uncertainty, ambiguity and complexity. Their business models are being disrupted more frequently and more significantly. This module uses a project from a global growth area for Australia (Agribusiness or similar) to provide students with a base for learning about business fundamentals within a context of disruption. The module also develops students┬┐ understanding of the importance of food, water and soil security in sustaining populations and the impact of food systems and distribution of income on health and well-being of different socio-economic groups. The project gives students the opportunity to continue to develop their team skills as introduced in EMBA6002 Reframing Leadership.
