  • Financial Management | FIN600
    This subject is focused on how to use accounting and financial information for decision-making purposes. It is designed for the leader/manager who will be using, rather than producing accounting and financial information. This subject also addresses the various types of financial decisions that leaders must make, and the strategies necessary to anticipate the alternatives, evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each and recognise the tradeoffs inherent in each alternative. The objective of this subject is for students to learn how to apply accounting and finance theory and principles to the analysis of important business problems, further developing their skills at using numerical analysis and research to support a line of argument.
  • Dynamic Leadership | MGT601

    Leadership in modern organisations is a way of thinking and behaving.  It is not necessarily a position in a hierarchy.  Leadership is a process of energising, influencing and motivating others: up, down, sideways and diagonally.  Becoming an effective leader requires self-awareness, self-management and a strong set of interpersonal communication skills, a set of capabilities that are often described as Emotional Intelligence (EQ).  In addition, effective leaders think and act strategically, they build a climate for creativity and innovation, and are culturally sensitive and comfortable with ambiguity. 

    This subject focuses on developing your leadership capability and not leadership as a theoretical concept that applies to other people.  It helps you explore your own leadership development and self-image, using the techniques of reflective research and supported by a mentoring partner.  It guides you through the preparation of plan for your continued leadership and professional development that is consistent with your personal values, anchored by the academic literature and enables you to be authentic, confident and resilient in leading productive work places for the future.

    Dynamic Leadership provides learning at the cognitive or intellectual level and at the affective or emotional level.  It develops explicit knowledge of leadership (know-what) and the often-neglected tacit knowledge (know-how).
  • Business Decision Analytics | MGT602
    Today's decisions have to be made quickly, individually and in groups, with what often appears to be ambiguous or too much data. How does one select, observe and distil the most pertinent data sets to make decisions that will positively impact tomorrow's firms and communities? This subject engages students in the nuances of data collection, how to filter data and how to use it most effectively in decision-making. The subject develops the student's qualitative and quantitative research skills, and digital literacy.
  • Systems Thinking | MGT603
    This subject builds on systems theory and introduces students to a holistic view of the organisation and the broader ecosystem it operates in. It also introduces students to the basic principles of operations management in the context of Systems Thinking. Students will be exposed to Systems Thinking tools to diagnose and propose innovative solutions to contemporary business issues.
  • Strategic Management | MGT604
    This subject explores sustainable approaches to managing the symbiotic relationship between organisations and their environments. Organisations are increasingly facing disruption and the basis for delivering products and services is rapidly changing. Sustaining performance requires careful management of business processes, fostering corporate competencies, and aligning the firm to its internal and external environment. The student will learn and then practice strategising through a number of theories and practical settings.
  • Employer Based Project | MGT606
    The Employer Based Project subject is a 4-unit postgraduate subject designed to facilitate work-integrated learning in the student’s current employment to be included in the volume of learning for the student’s currently enrolled program. Like any other subject, there is an expectation that the student will engage in 120 hours of active learning above and beyond their normal employment duties. This subject requires the student to undertake and document an original and new project that will be sponsored by and benefit the employer as well as demonstrably bridge the theoretical–praxis gap in the student’s knowledge. If approved, the student will be allocated an academic supervisor who will support the student in bridging knowledge and practice for the duration of the unit.
  • Business Law and International Contexts | MGT608
    This subject introduces students to the law, the role of the law and the impact the law has in its operation on managerial and business practice. Contract, tort, intellectual property, agency and employment law are considered, as well as means and methods of considering dispute resolution. How these are contextualised internationally is explored.
  • Managing Information Systems | MGT609

    Managing information systems is critical in business decision-making. Using a systems perspective, in this subject you will explore the role of information systems in the business administration context, the impact of technological innovation on the management of information, and the risks associated with poor information management.

  • Organisational Best Practice | MGT610
    Benchmarking and the ability to collect, analyse and present benchmarking data to influence organisational decision making is a core competence for many organisations. This subject develops students’ analytical skills and understanding of benchmarking processes and procedures before supporting them in a benchmarking exercise of their own.
  • International Business Strategy | MGT611
    As business becomes increasingly global with the use of the internet making all goods available everywhere, the better prepared an organisation is for international markets, the more successful it is likely to be. This subject focuses on the risks, strategies, and implementation of international business plans, requiring students to both evaluate current practice and develop an international strategy for their own organisation or organisation of their choice.
  • Risk Management | MGT612
    The subject focuses on risk management, risk assessment and risk mitigation plans, including the necessary communication plans and skills to ensure that incidents and risks are managed as safely as possible in a controlled manner.

  • What are the semester and term dates?

    Torrens University Australia has three main intakes each year, usually during February, June and September. There are also a range of accelerated intake dates available, meaning if you just miss the start date, you don’t have to wait until the next intake.

    You can apply any time throughout the year for the next intake start date – or a future start date if you are planning ahead. Different semester dates apply for Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School as well as some of our other courses.
