Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper explores the world of management in organisations and provides a realistic introduction to the essential functions of management. It reviews the manager's role in organisations today, together with an understanding of how managers and firms need to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Using the case teaching method, students develop a critical awareness that in every situation, issue, or problem, managing is a mixture of artful and scientific decision-making that requires the application of analytical and interpersonal skills.

This is a FLEXI paper which means the teaching is delivered on campus but is set up so a student can complete the paper without attending in person, including tests. It is offered face to face and in FLEXI mode.

Students will be able to make a choice on Moodle whether they will participate in the course face to face or online. However, If a student selects 'online' they are expected to join a group, communicate with the lecturer and tutor regularly and participate. If the student wishes to change their choice once the trimester has begun, they will need to email the Convenor for approval.

If you have any questions please email Dr Jason Mika at jason.mika@waikato.ac.nz

Workload

Edit Workload Content

This is a 15 point paper, which is allocated 150 hours of learning over a 16 week period (including exam/test time). There are 12 direct contact teaching weeks, 2 week teaching recess in the middle of the trimester, 1 week study at the end of teaching and 2 weeks for examinations/tests.

This paper equates to 9-10 hours of learning, per week, over the 16 week period. This includes the 2-hour lecture and the 2-hour scheduled tutorial during teaching weeks. The remaining time (approximately 6 hours per week) is allocated to self-directed learning, including reading relevant text and developing notes, completing group and individual assessment pieces.

Students are expected to still work through the teaching recess weeks which occurs mid-trimester, although no classes will occur during these two weeks. Students should ensure that they are meeting the required expectations of learning hours for this paper.
