Summary

Careers in management are available in nearly every industry and offer diverse opportunities for people with the right knowledge, skills, and credentials. If you are ready to advance your career in management, earning a Bachelor of Business (Management) at Unitec will prepare you with knowledge and skills relevant to today’s competitive business environment.

Management is about relationships - the art and science of people and process. Study the Bachelor of Business (Management) and you'll gain an understanding of how business operates and how to effectively manage resources and operations. This programme is designed with teamwork and project based coursework to best prepare you for success in the workplace. The second year narrows your focus on your choice of either Human Resources or Operations, and you will then apply what you’ve developed in your Internship Based Learning (IBL) work placement, so you get practical experience before you even graduate.

Human resource management focuses on understanding people and relationships at work, and how these can be moved and changed as needed. You’ll learn about human resource (HR) strategy and planning, recruitment, selection, training, development, performance management systems and employment contracts.

Operations focus on designing and controlling processes. You’ll learn about a broad range of operations functions, including forecasting, inventory management, process improvement, work methods, production planning, quality and supply chain management.
