The importance of managing people and of management processes generally means that the study of management is relevant to most if not all students. Management study is of central importance for all those who wish to contribute and succeed in the business or organisation world and also supports other specialist responsibilities. For example a school principal is a teacher and a manager and a head chef is both a chef and a manager – both managing people and processes to ensure organisations are run efficiently.  Management is relevant to a wide range of areas, and is an excellent subject to combine with others in a double degree or major.

The problem-solving and analytic skills you'll acquire throughout management study will prepare you for an exciting and successful career - wherever you choose.
