Core courses

MMGT6001 Managing Yourself and Others

Managing Yourself and Others is a compulsory starter course for the AGSM Master of Management and will be delivered as an intensive, providing a cohort experience. For professionals to be successful in an organisational environment, they need to develop an understanding of their own abilities and areas for development. They also need to develop an understanding of the approaches that can tale to working with others in their team(s), across the organisation and across organisational boundaries. Drawing on insights from management, leadership, organisational behaviour and human resources disciplines, this course provides students with an understanding of key principles of self-management and working with others. Working in small groups they will develop these skills and will have the opportunity to apply them outside the classroom. Students will put together a personal development plan that they can use as they start their business careers.

Then five from the following

MMGT6002 Financial Management

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.

MMGT6003 Business Economics

It is important for managers to understand the broad economic context within which their organisations operate as well as some of the economic principles that impact the behaviour of economic actors in the context of the firm. This course draws on core concepts from both macro and micro economics to equip students with the knowledge and frameworks they need to help them understand the economic context in which they are operating and how this might affect their organisation. They will have the opportunity to apply these principles to real world examples and will develop an understanding of how core economic principles can be used to help provide insights and shape effective strategies in a business context.

MMGT6004 Principles of Marketing

Marketing is concerned with the creation, communication and delivery of value to customers with a view to create exchanges that build customer relationships and satisfy individual and organisational goals. While the tools and techniques available to organisations to market their products and services are changing rapidly, there are important underlying principles from consumer behaviour, marketing research and marketing strategy that can inform the most effective use of these tools and techniques. This course introduces students to these core concepts and provides them with the opportunity to identify how as a marketing team they would use them to create, communicate and deliver value to customers in different settings and contexts by focusing on a real-world case.

MMGT6005 Law, Regulation and Ethics

Businesses exist within a complex legal and regulatory environment that shapes how they can and should operate. Beyond what is legal, organisations and individual managers also need to understand the ethical issues associated with the decisions that they and their organisations make. This course provides students with an introduction to core principles of business law, an overview of the various forms that regulation takes in a contemporary economy and introduces them to a variety of ethical frameworks that can be used to guide business decision making. The course introduces these concepts by focussing on contemporary cases and business examples and equips students to recognise legal and regulatory issues and equips them with ethical frameworks that they can apply in their professional lives.

MMGT6006 Strategies for Disruption

Rapid changes in technology and the emergence of new business models are disrupting many, if not all, industries. Increasingly managers need to understand the sources of disruption and the strategies they can adopt to confront and take advantage of the current wave of disruption. Drawing on lessons from disruptors like Uber and AirBnB, as well as examples of established firms that have been able to adapt to major disruption, students in this course will be introduced to key concepts in business strategy and will have the opportunity to apply this understanding to identify successful strategies across a range of industries and sectors.

Students will have the opportunity to pitch their venture to a panel of entrepreneurs and professional investors.

MMGT6104 Communicating Value

To be successful managers increasingly need to be able to communicate value to internal and external stakeholders. Drawing on the literature on bargaining, negotiations and persuasion as well as cross cultural communication and storytelling, this course is designed to help students develop the communications skills they need to be successful in the contemporary business context. Focus will be given to a range of contemporary business situations including engaging with clients, building understanding with internal stakeholders as well as developing compelling business cases.
