Management and communication skills BA1060
The aims of this course are to develop an understanding of the theory and practice of effective interpersonal communication - and how it relates to the process of management in the workplace.
This course is more than that. It’s also about essential life skills that will help you throughout your university career – and beyond into your career. We want to get you ready for the world of work in the second decade of the 21st century. We want you to see the class as a rehearsal for work and therefore managing your own performances in teams during the workshops and more importantly in the team assignment.
To that end the course has a number of organisational partners from industry and commerce, keen to help you understand the challenges involved. While a lot of their involvement is behind the scenes, they will be open to internship applications so you make the most of your long vacations by getting really challenging work experiences. They will also be providing the challenges that make up the group projects and helping with the feedback process.
On completion of the course, you should be able to demonstrate the practical knowledge, understanding and skills of the effective business communicator.
