Students will also demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the global environment in which business is conducted. Students will learn through independent research, interaction with unit materials, unit coordinators and fellow students, and will be assessed using case analysis of both hypothetical and real-world examples, workplace learning by analysing and applying theory to their own workplace, theory-based assignments and via multiple assessment modes.
Communication skills are taught, practised and assessed throughout this course.

This graduate attribute is taught, practised and assessed throughout the course using scenarios requiring students to use advanced cognitive and critical thinking skills to identify business issues, and to critically analyse and evaluate the relevant theories and concepts to construct business solutions.

Students need to reflect on the principles of professional and social responsibility and critically apply these to a range of ethical issues and scenarios.
