This course lays the foundation for a career in management. It not only exposes students to important theories and knowledge about the nature of management and organisations, it also introduces students to the process of self-reflection as a management activity. In the opening weeks of the semester, students are exposed to a range of context information surrounding management and organisations, including topics such as the historical origins of current management theory, and current issues in management including sustainability and management as an international phenomenon. In addition, students are offered training in self-reflection processes and theory. The second half of the course is devoted to a detailed coverage of the four core management functions identified by Fayol; planning, leading, organising and controlling.
