Management - Department of Management at Launceston and Hobart

Management and marketing skills are essential to business and professional activities. A wide range of units in these areas is offered by the Department of Management which operates on a cross-campus basis. Most units offered by the Department can be studied on campus in either Launceston or Hobart. Each semester a selection of units is offered by distance education. The Department is responsible for all undergraduate Management, Marketing and International Business units and several of the business law units offered within the Bachelor of Commerce degree and in the Management BCom Honours program. It is also responsible for units offered in the Graduate Diploma in Business Administration and the Master of Business Administration; and provides academic supervision for a number of higher degree students.

Aspiring to first level ranking among Australian University Management departments, the Department is committed to quality teaching, research and scholarly activities; and aims to provide a supportive working environment for students. Students in other faculties are encouraged to undertake units offered by the Department as electives.
