About

The School of Management provides a range of high quality programs in management education, international business, entrepreneurship and human resource management.

Here in the School of Management, we focus on management in context. We're committed to the principles of socially responsible management and entrepreneurship, and to sustainable work from a global perspective.

We carry out applied research on ‘wicked problems’. Our research strengths are in the areas of People, Organisations and Work, Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Social Change. We also host the Centre for People, Organisations and Work (CPOW).

The development of all our programs and activities is informed by our Industry Advisory Committee of prominent alumni and members of the business community, who give expert advice on ensuring our programs are relevant to industry requirements. We also have a number of active adjunct professors from industry and academia who contribute to the development of the work of the School.

All of our programs incorporate Work Integrated Learning (WIL) which means that students are work-ready by the time they graduate. This embedded industry perspective places them ahead of their competitors in the job market and provides an invaluable opportunity to start developing social and professional networks during their studies.

We also connect with the local Victorian community, professional bodies, businesses, research centres, governments and secondary schools in Australia to run projects, provide services, host conferences and provide networking opportunities for business leaders and alumni.

The Centre for People, Organisations and Work

The Centre for People, Organisation and Work (CPOW) is an interdisciplinary centre located in RMIT’s College of Business and Law. CPOW is a lively collaboration between passionate and engaged researchers committed to social justice. Our community of researchers use a range of critical conceptual frameworks and methods in analysing contemporary problems in the world of work.

Our research agenda is based on principles of fairness, equality (especially gender equality), sustainability and social justice. It is worker-centred and focuses on people at work and in their communities, particularly those who are vulnerable and marginalised.
