Credit Points: 15
BES1100 Foundations of Business Knowledge

This unit builds and expands upon BES1100 and further develops student knowledge and professional skills. Students will develop interpersonal skills required for effective personal and business success. This in turn, will lead to the development of an e-portfolio that will be developed during the student’s course. Issues will be examined that relate to teamwork and team building, and giving and receiving feedback. Students will further develop to understand the role of multiple perspectives in problem solving and decision making. Students will further develop their searching skills, learning to summarise and synthesise information into various business and non-business documents. Software will be used to simulate business processes to broaden students’ knowledge and understanding. Students will also be asked to apply ethical principles or rules to various scenarios, using higher order values to inform judgement. At the conclusion of the unit students should have a critical understanding of themselves and people from diverse backgrounds.
