Build a career across any industry

Today's top managers think differently, act differently and make decisions differently than their employees. The abilities that separate leaders from followers are the same for executives around the world and Griffith's got them down to a fine art.

If you like to plan, organise, lead and direct groups of people to achieve a specific goal, then studying management is a good choice for you. You'll learn about management's core functions: communication, planning, teamwork, strategy, human resources and self-development. You'll also develop analytical, communication and decision-making skills, which will enable you to add value to any organisation.
