Management and Marketing
Bachelor of Commerce (Management) & Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) – Double Major – BCom(Curtin)
Management knowledge and skills are valued and needed in small-to-medium enterprises, not-for-profit organisations, large corporations and government, both locally and globally.
Management is about taking a leading role: supervising and mentoring staff, balancing budgets, and ensuring tasks and projects are completed successfully, together with recognising issues such as values, ethics and sustainability. It means taking responsibility, being entrepreneurial and getting things done, and making the most of your staff and resources.
A management qualification can create opportunities in a wide range of careers. Curtin’s management graduates may receive recognition from a range of professional bodies.
Marketing is one of the most important functions in a successful business.
Firms use marketing to differentiate their products and services in the marketplace, effectively communicate with their intended audience, and develop strategies to maximise consumer value, sales and profits.
Marketers blend advertising, promotions, digital and social media marketing, public relations, retailing and sales strategies to promote an organisation’s brand, products and services.
Your study will involve interaction with industry, as the marketing teaching team has strong industry connections. Units often feature real life clients; students develop strategies to solve real business problems and present their ideas directly to management representatives.
