The Department of Management comprises the largest grouping of management researchers in Australia. Our main research strengths include organisational behaviour, leadership, human resource management, work and employment relations, ethics, operations and supply chain, and public management and governance.
Our research informs our teaching and makes a significant contribution to the body of management knowledge and has beneficial impacts on individuals, organisations and society.
In the latest Federal Government's 'Excellence in Research for Australia' (ERA 2012) assessment, we were rated 'above world standard', for our research in management. Researchers regularly publish in top ranked A and A* journals.
We are currently working on research projects supported by more than $2 million in external funding. In the last five years researchers have won significant funding from the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery and Linkage Schemes, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and Australian Aid (AusAid) programs. These projects are focused on key issues both in Australia and overseas.
Three academic groups manage our learning and teaching:
- Human Resource Management and Employment Relations
- Governance, Leadership and Organisation
- International Business, Operations and Strategy
Our teaching programs in Human Resource Management have been accredited by the Australian Human Resources Institute after a rigorous process of validation.
