People are an organisation's most important asset. Studying management teaches you how to develop those assets and ensure an organisation remains competitive. As a manager, your tasks may be varied and can be driven by the type of industry you work in. However, being a manager generally involves setting objectives; finding the right people to undertake the work; organising work and assigning that work to the right people.
If you specialise in management, you will be well-positioned to apply for roles across a number of industries and sectors. This includes consulting, media, government, publishing, retail, small business, manufacturing, supply chain operations, tourism and the not-for-profit sector.
