MGTS1301 – Introduction to Management 43.9

I didn't enjoy this course, I found most of the content taught is common sense surrounded by buzzwords. The tutorials are helpful to re-enforce the content and are easy marks but not really enjoyable. The Everest simulation was interesting but writing an assignment on it? The assignment outline was very structured but it was hard to actually draw links to the course content as was required.
Easy 6/7 not really an enjoyable course though.

MGTS1301 – Introduction to Management 87.6

This is one of the easiest courses you'll ever do, granted its a first year course but still, an easy 7 if you watch a few of the lectures and go to all the assessable workshops and tutorials.

Textbook is somewhat necessary as major points in the lecture are back but each chapter (ie week 1, chapter 1).

Great assessment weighting to maximise your grad before going into final exam.

MGTS1301 – Introduction to Management 82.1

As other reviews cover most of what this course is about, I think it's best to write how to easily achieve a 7 in this course.

- Attend 10 tutorials for 10%.
- Attend practical assignment - it was Mt Everest for me, quite fun. Also % for this, I don't remember how much.
- All lecs were recorded for me, so seeing lec recording was enough for a 7. BUT attending the final lec is important as April gives out highly useful hints about the final exam and summarizes most of what is examined.
- For the written part of the assignment, make sure to listen carefully of what April requires, many failed to get full marks for getting side tracked into writing irrelevant things.
- Broad theory more than depth

Above was all for my semester so things may be different.

MGTS1301 – Introduction to Management 95.8

An easy 7 if you go to all of the tutes. They prepare you well for the final exam. No need to buy the textbook - the lecture slides cover everything you need. Lectures were a bit boring, you'd probably learn the content faster if you read through the yourself. April is a good lecturer who makes herself available and is willing to help. The Assignment is an easy way to go into the final exam on a good footing.

April is a very energetic lecturer who applies all of the management theory in the course to real life situations. Her enthusiasm for the course adds a lot to the course.

A little less focus on group work would be good. However the integration of group work in the course was in no way to the detriment of the course.

April does a great job at teaching people the basics of business management. As I progress through my degree, I see how wise she really is. The topics this course exposes you to are built upon later in your degree and are ever useful.

This course is even great for people not studying business. Seeing as this is a very general course, it has useful information for literally any field/specialisation.

I definitely recommend this if any of you are considering it as an elective.

I cannot say the same for the second semester lecturer though.
