This involves administering, managing and operating a variety of businesses and other organisations, including 'non-profits' and government agencies.

Studying management includes learning about employment practices, business strategy, operations management, international business, planning, leadership, etc.

Management also includes learning about 'organisational behaviour' – the psychology and sociology of workplaces.
