Welcome to the School of Management and thanks for visiting our website. The School of Management is one of the newer Schools within the University of Tasmania established in 1992. The School has developed rapidly to be one of the largest and most diverse within the University. We now offer programs in Hobart, Launceston, Burnie, as well as internationally, and have a team of staff who are recognised around the world for their excellence in teaching and research.
Our undergraduate teaching program aims to provide an innovative educational experience that equips students with knowledge, skills and abilities relevant to a range of management-related disciplines. Students are able to study across the fields of business management, human resource management, marketing, entrepreneurship, tourism and international business. This eclectic mix means that our program offers a strong basis for enhancing students' intellectual development in several core business areas.
Our graduates are adaptable, well educated, and posses professional skills that make them very employable in today's rapidly changing business environment. In addition, the wide range of units offered in these areas, on a multi-campus platform, gives great flexibility to students and is supported by use of flexible delivery modes.
The undergraduate degree programs also lay the foundation for postgraduate coursework and research study. High-achieving students are able to complete a fourth year of research-oriented study to gain an honours degree in business or in tourism. In addition, the School contributes to coursework programs, from Graduate Certificate through to Master of Business Administration, Master of Marketing, and Master of International Business. These programs allow students from varying levels of work backgrounds to develop their management knowledge and skills. We also have an active research masters and PhD program.
The research activities in the School similarly represent a diverse mix. School staff participate in a wide range of research across our core areas. The School is associated with the Australian Innovation Research Centre, which aims to be an international driver of innovation policy research. The School is also developing research foci in human resource management and organisational behaviour, marketing, and tourism marketing specificially.
The School has ongoing links with relevant professional bodies, industry and government and these links are important to ensure that our teaching and research continues to be at the cutting edge.
Overall, the School aims to achieve excellence in research, teaching and service to the wider community. We are committed to providing a supporting working environment for students and staff alike.
