Management is the process of planning, organising, leading and controlling the efforts of organisational members and using resources inside and outside the organisation to achieve set objectives. A Management major draws on subjects from a number of disciplines in the Business School and develops a sound understanding of managing the internal processes of organisations and the relationship between organisations and their environments.
