Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Many university graduates aim to become managers, either of their own business, or as part of the management team of other entities. A critical attribute of management is the ability to incorporate financial and non-financial data in a range of decisions, such as pricing products, setting budgets, and evaluating performance.

However, the majority of these people have not studied accounting and information systems. This unit aims to address this gap by showing you how to identify, obtain, manipulate and analyse data to make informed business decisions.

This unit is co-taught with 11009 Business Decision Making.

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Apply a systems approach to facilitate business decision making;

2. Evaluate a range of behavioural factors and demonstrate how they influence decision makers;
