Description This subject addresses one of the key internal issues facing business today: understanding and using a range of business information to make strategic decisions. Students will use the knowledge gained from prior subjects to solve business problems, deal with unique situations or plan and manage changing circumstances. A multi-disciplinary approach to analyse business situations will be applied to enable students to recognise this inter-related nature of business disciplines. A simulated practice in the application of knowledge to complex situations will be applied to provide an experiential learning environment.
