To achieve competitive advantage in today’s global business environment, managers require skills in problem anticipation, identification and solving, along with abilities to work with and in teams and engage in ethical decision making. Thus, critical and self-reflective thinking is central to success in both postgraduate study and professional business careers.

This course is designed as a foundation core course in the Master of Commerce program. Drawing on these thinking skills, students will develop an understanding of how the functioning and contribution of teams and ethical practices in wider organisational contexts are related to competitive advantage. The course adopts a multiple perspectives approach which encourages students to develop these skills.
