Drawing together key skills from a number of business subjects, Business Operations (Strategy and Application) provides students with the opportunity to take part in a simulated game where teams compete to manage a successful business over a period of eight financial years. You’ll need to make decisions surrounding investment, production, marketing, and finance, and discuss current business issues, strategic and operational, to achieve long-term business success.
This online unit, offered by RMIT University and Open Universities Australia, teaches you how to understand, plan and articulate professional pathways in real business. It also gives you the skills to manage complex resources and organisational tasks, connect internal and external factors that affect your business, and understand economic, financial, marketing, accounting and legal knowledge.
This practical unit also incorporates theory surrounding the ethical, social and environmental implications of business processes and practices – a vital part of the modern business world. You will also come away with excellent communication skills, including how to listen to and engage with clients and employees, and how to speak persuasively.
