About Management, HR, and business administration

Management focuses on how organisations operate – what they do, their employment practices, ways of managing and their business strategies.

Within management you can choose to study Human Resources, which is the way organisations manage, administer, develop, supervise and recruit for the people talent that makes up organisations.

Studying Business Administration can further develop your career from an area of specialisation to stepping into a broader management function within the organisation. This will see you not only manage the performance of business operations but push the organisation to achieve its goals.
