MMGT6001 Managing Yourself and Others (6 UOC) - Compulsory intensive Core

  • Managing Yourself and Others is a compulsory starter course for the AGSM Master of Management. It is delivered in an intensive mode over two weekends, and via a videoconference, to provide an AGSM cohort experience.

    For managers to be successful in an organisational environment, they need to develop an understanding of their own abilities and areas for development. Drawing on insights from the management, psychology, leadership, and organisational behaviour disciplines, this course provides students with an opportunity to develop their management capabilities through the application of a broad range of evidence-based practical concepts and tools. These capabilities include core skills in managing others and the self-management skills required to be an effective manager. A broader goal in the course is to equip students to be ‘in learning mode’. This entails using a proactive, mindful and systematic approach to learning from their experiences throughout their Master of Management program and career. The course includes an opportunity for students to systematically analyse their career values and preferences, to clarify their career goals and describe them in a compelling manner, and to develop their skills for launching and navigating their preferred business career.

MMGT6002 Financial Management (6 UOC) - Weekly Core

  • Financial Management provides an introduction to core concepts and principles associated with the financial management of organisations. Drawing on financial and management accounting and aspects of corporate finance, this course will introduce students to core business skills including the ability to read and interpret financial statements, an understanding of sources of revenue and drivers of costs as well as insights into the ways that organisations are financed and how this impacts the business. They will also be introduced to principles of extended reporting, such as triple bottom line, that seek to provide insights into not just the financial performance of organisations but also their social and environmental impact. Students will have the opportunity to apply the concepts covered in this course to real world examples and will gain an appreciation of how these concepts can be used to help shape business decisions. By the end of the course they will feel confident in using accounting and financial information and have the ability to use this information in a compelling non-technical manner.
