This course is the first of three, comprising the Integrating Core in the BBus degree. The Integrating Core courses aim to systematically develop the critical thinking, research and problem solving skills that are required for success in business environments.  This course presents management as a profession that is founded on research.  It outlines the broad range of activities that constitute management and shows how different management activities can be supported by different types of research.  It aims to develop managers who use research evidence to support decision making and policy making.  In this course, students learn how to locate and critically analyse information in the management research literature. The course has a particular focus on developing Graduate Attributes and intellectual skills which may be applied to enhance understanding and performance in other courses in the degree.
