Deakin offers an integrated and progressive study of modern management theory and practice in an Australian and global context. Management refers to the procedures and systems used in an organisation to assess how individuals and the organisation itself can best operate.

Our management degree will challenge you to take responsibility for your own learning, to engage with people, with the community, with business and to see yourself as a global citizen.

Throughout your course you will learn management techniques and strategies, and gain the necessary personal skills to be a strong leader.
