Description

An introduction to the fundamental principles of management related to the functional areas of planning, organising, leading and controlling, as well as an introduction to how organisations are linked to the New Zealand and global business environment.

The objective of this course is to introduce students to the principles of general management theory and to explain the interface between management and the business environment. Key aspects of the functional areas of management will be introduced (i.e., planning, organising, leading, and controlling the use of economic and human resources to accomplish organisational goals), and the nature of organisational processes will be explained (e.g., processes related to organisational design such as decision making, leadership and communication.) The interface with the business environment will also provide students with a broad introduction to the current New Zealand and international business conditions, organisational cultures, marketing, social responsibility and business ethics.

As a foundation course, MGMT100 covers the range of issues that managers face with respect to the administrative, socio-political and cultural challenges of management. The concepts introduced are relevant to all aspects of managing an organisation including: Human Resource Management, organisational planning and design, strategic management, operations management, and marketing. These concepts reflect the organisation’s ability to deliver goods or services that customers want as a result of the decisions and behaviours of all its members: top managers who plan the organisation’s strategy, middle managers who coordinate human and economic resources, and supervisors and workers who are engaged in production activities.

The ‘45% rule’ does not apply to this course. That is, student does not need to reach 45% weighted average across invigilated assessments. Please refer to https://learn.canterbury.ac.nz/course/view.php?id=7744 for further information.

Assessment In Te Reo Māori
In recognising that Te Reo Māori is an official language of New Zealand, the University provides for students who may wish to use the Te Reo Māori in their assessment. If you intend to submit your work in Te Reo Māori you are required to do the following:

Read the Assessment in Te Reo Māori Policy and ensure that you meet the conditions set out in the policy. This includes, but is not limited to,

Notes

Departmental Academic Policies
A summary of Departmental academic policies on course grading, special considerations, etc. is available under: https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/business/departments/. The Department assumes that you have read this document.

You should also read the following:
• UC Business School Student Handbook on the UC Business School Students Learn page https://learn.canterbury.ac.nz/course/view.php?id=7744
General Course and Examination Regulations http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/regulations/general/general_regs_enrolment_courses.shtml

Dishonest Practice
The University of Canterbury considers cheating and plagiarism to be serious acts of dishonesty. All assessed work must be your own individual work unless specifically stated otherwise in the assessment guidelines. Material quoted from any other source must be clearly acknowledged. You must not copy the work of another person (student or published work) in any assessment including examinations, tests and assignments. Any person, who is found to have copied someone else's work, or to have allowed their work to be copied, will receive a fail grade for that piece of assessment and may face disciplinary action which may lead to a fine, community service or exclusion from the university.

IMPORTANT: Where there are concerns regarding the authorship of written course work, a student can be required to provide a formal, oral explanation of the content of their work.
