Engineering Business Management and Operations

Engineering Business Management and Operations incorporates two themes: Management Theory and Business Concepts.

Management theory addresses contemporary management concepts stemming from changing organisational structures, complex environmental conditions, new technological developments and increasingly diverse workforces. It highlights critical management issues involved in both managing and being managed including: components of organisations, environment, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people and outputs and managerial decisions.

The business concepts theme focuses on providing a context for the management issues in the engineering/industrial sector by examining the sizes and structures of different industries, the types of organisations, as well as global trade and commercial issues.
