Management focuses on how organisations operate – what they do, their employment practices, ways of managing and their business strategies. It is the process of achieving organisational goals and demands an understanding of the economic, social and environmental context.

Marketing is about understanding customer needs, resources and networks to create value for the customer and for the organisation. MBS marketing graduates are known for their perceptive understanding of business issues, skilful communication and strong leadership. Graduates are employed in a variety of industries, including in communication and customer strategy, international business, consulting and analysis.

Our Department is also home to the Centre for Workplace Leadership, a research centre dedicated to leadership research, improving the quality of leadership in Australian workplaces, and developing leaders.
