|Year||2016 unit information|
Trimester 2: Burwood (Melbourne) Intensive
(For Doctor of Business Administration students only)
Unit is taught face to face intensively in blocks during the trimester; that is, classes are not held on a weekly basis. Attendance is required at each all-day seminar as specified below:
Management and organisational consulting is designed to equip DBA students with an understanding of the nature and purpose of management consulting and to equip them with skills and attitudes needed to work in the management consulting field. The unit will integrate theory from several fields of management study – organisational psychology, organisational change and business-to-business services marketing – and will draw on research and case studies which specifically address management consulting.
It is designed for doctoral-level students who are interested in working as internal or external management consultants in a variety of organisational settings and industries, or who are already working in such roles. However, it is also suitable for those doctoral students who may not wish to work as a consultant in a formal capacity because the knowledge and skills students will acquire in this unit will be valuable in a range of other positions that require the ability to deliver services and advice.
