Purpose: The purpose of this module is to establish a foundation for the study of business management; and to develop the learner’s understanding of the concept of strategic management and of the specific management tasks (planning, organising, leadership, control).
Business and management degrees range from broad and comprehensive to highly specialized programs, spanning subjects including accounting, finance, business administration, economics, marketing and management – each of which provides further opportunities for specialization.
Most individuals obtaining management doctorates take the programs to obtain the training in research methods, statistical analysis and writing academic papers that they will need to seek careers as researchers, senior consultants and/or professors in business administration or management.
