Management in Practice - WORK3601

This capstone unit bridges the gap between theory and practice in management by integrating knowledge and consolidating key skills developed across the major. It aims to provide students with practical experience in identifying, analysing, and solving contemporary business problems by examining the emergence, significance and challenges associated with management within contemporary organisations. The unit brings together and consolidates the theories, practices and debates covered in the Management major drawing on national and international practical examples in what is an experiential and problem-based learning approach. Students ensure their career-readiness by demonstrating their ability to apply concepts, theories, frameworks, methodologies, and skills to authentic problems and challenges faced in the field of management.
