MB106 / BU8601 Fundamentals of Management

Acad Unit: 3
Pre-requisite: NIL

Course Description:
To function in an organisation, technical skills by themselves are insufficient; they have to be supplemented by management training. Success in an organisation depends as much on general management skills and understanding operational systems as on technical expertise. Hence, students need a firm foundation in management skills. This course is designed for non-business students and aims to equip them with the knowledge, skills and competence in various aspects of management, including: the role of management and managers; decision making, planning and strategy; managing organisational architecture; managing individuals and groups; and controlling critical organisational processes.
