7 Core subjects
  • 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.
  • Business Environment | MGT501 

    This subject introduces the student to the foundations of business. The focus of this subject is on providing fundamental concepts and context for students to enrich their mastery in subsequent studies while developing as a reflective practitioner. Students will examine the functional operations of business and the environments in which it operates. This may include analysing the economic, social, political, legal, technological and ethical influences on contemporary businesses. Students will also examine the viewpoints of internal and external stakeholders.

  • Business Communications | MGT502
    This subject introduces students to the concepts of business communications and transferrable academic skills.  This subject presents an analysis of the types of communication processes, which occur in the internal and external business environment, including an examination of the theoretical underpinnings of communication in business.  Emphasis is placed on writing skills, reports and presentations and on using technology to communicate.  The subject introduces students to research skills, information literacy, critical analysis, writing and language techniques.  The aims of this subject are to provide knowledge and skills needed for success in Higher Education, to help students manage their own success and to assist them in reaching their academic potential.  
  • 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.
  • Marketing | MKT600
    21st Century professionals who aspire to hold a leadership position must have a clear understanding and appreciation of the importance of marketing. This subject is designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of marketing theories and the practical application of marketing concepts and marketing strategies in various contexts including profit and not-for- profit organisations, including government. This subject equips students with marketing strategy formulation and the use of strategic marketing mix elements in developing and maintaining a market orientation and assessing organisational performance in relation to ethical and socially acceptable business practices.
  • Management, People and Teams | MGT600
    Understanding organisational behaviour, politics, dynamics and environments and how they impact on the role and legitimacy of the management function is the core of this subject.  This subject helps individuals understand the constraints they face as managers and emerging leaders and how they can develop strategies to leverage advantages and overcome constraints and barriers in their organisations.  The subject also focusses on developing some of the advanced communication skills necessary in management and leadership roles, and the ability of the individual to influence others.  The subject introduces students to the concept of naturally occurring data and qualitative analysis.  This subject also focuses on the development of knowledge and skills to enable students to identify, analyse and make effective decisions to resolve people-related issues in organisations, facilitate employee development, and develop and sustain effective teams in complex, diverse, and increasingly global operating environments.
  • 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).

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.
  • Innovation Creativity and Entrepreneurship | MGT607
    This subject seeks to build the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to succeed as an ethical entrepreneur or entrepreneur.

How these are contextualised internationally is explored.
  • 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.

  • 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. The value of such activities is critically analysed to ensure that the effort expended is appropriate to the size of the risk.
  • Corporate Sustainability | MGT613
    This subject is underpinned by notions that are measured by the triple bottom line: economic, social and environmental costs and benefits. The subject explores the competitive advantage to be gained through sustainable practices and requires students to develop a sustainability strategy for an organisation of their choice. This subject explores the issues of social justice and human rights more fundamentally than other subjects as sustainability issues for the future.
  • Technology Strategy | MGT614
    Technology impacts on most everything that we do in organisations, how we do deliver and perform, and how efficiently we manage our operations. Technology strategy therefore focuses on making the right decisions about the deployment of technology in line with business strategy and the risks associated with making the wrong technology decisions. The subject employs a range of research methods to draw up scenarios for decision making, and requires the students to present the case for a technology innovation strategy to a board of stakeholders.

This subject will prepare students to better understand the technologies that are disrupting and transforming society both now and into the future.
  • Requirements Engineering | MIS604
    Requirements management is a method of defining, using, modelling, documenting, maintaining, and measuring requirements throughout the software process. This helps developers explore requirements management and how it supports systems engineering and software engineering life cycles. Develop techniques for eliciting requirements and identifying good requirements. Represent requirements graphically by utilising powerful unified modelling language (UML) diagramming techniques. Develop skills to effectively manage requirements changes and techniques for measuring requirement quality through quantitative metrics.
  • Systems Analysis and Design | MIS605
    This subject introduces students to activities, techniques, and methodologies a systems analyst uses to design information systems that, when built, enhance the organisation’s ability to meet its business goals via available technology. These include define requirements for system, model high-level behaviours of system, and design blueprint, that is, planning and implementation and will move through object-oriented approaches to analysis and design, the transformation of user requirements to system design. User empathy is promoted in this subject, using the unified modelling language (UML).

    There are different pathways for different courses. For example, we offer a range of diploma courses which pathway into bachelor degrees in Business, Design and Creative Technology, Health and Hospitality. We also have graduate certificate and graduate diploma courses which pathway into masters courses in Business, Global Project Management, Sports Management, Health, Education, Design and Hospitality. 

    For more information on different types of pathways available, visit study pathways.

  • How can I pay for my course?

    Payment information will be outlined in your offer letter but there are a couple of different options:

    1. Upfront payment via credit card, BPAY, cheque or overseas bank account transfer
    2. Full or partial payment via FEE-HELP Government Assistance (domestic students only)

  • 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.
