What Do Managers Do?

A Manager’s role involves the planning, organisation, leadership and control of both human and other available resources to efficiently attain the business or organisation’s goals.

While every management role varies, based on how a company or organisation wants to achieve these goals and how broad the scope of the role is, there are consistencies in the skills and knowledge required.

Managers are an integral part of a business or organisation and are necessary to ensure the staff that fall underneath them are performing their roles to an acceptable standard and are motivated enough to be highly productive.

Career Outcomes

Management qualifications can lead to a wide variety of career opportunities, including:

• General Manager
• Operations Manager
• Project Manager
• Office Manager
• Human Resources Manager
• Administration Mnager
• Executive Manager
• Branch Manager
• Business Manager
• Small Business owner

Job Outlook for Managers

If you’re interested in enrolling in a management course, you’re in luck! The management sector is very large, with an above average of job opportunities expected up until 2019. It’s also expected for over 10,000 new jobs to be created in management by 2019; with this number of openings possibly being as large as 25,000 new positions by the same year.

The majority of general managers are employed in information, media, manufacturing, professional/business and IT and science industries.

In terms of salary, the average pay for managers varies depending on experience and education; as well as the scale of the business they work for. The salary range is usually between $54, 200 for entry-level positions and $162, 000 for executive managers according to PayScale.

Types of Management Courses

There is a wide selection of management courses you can enrol in, depending on whether you want an introduction to this role or the skill-set and knowledge to equip you to advance further. Management courses are offered in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Australia-wide. With options ranging from short courses for beginners through to diplomas and undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, it’s often hard to decide where to start.

For those interested in a management career with no prior background or training, a short course, certificate or diploma would all be suitable study options. If you’ve already acquired experience in management but want to further your career and expand your knowledge and skill-set, then an undergraduate or postgraduate degree would be better study alternatives.

To help you ascertain which management courses are right for you, here is a brief overview of the different options available as well as a short explanation of each of these:

Short Courses

So you’ve never been involved in management and would like to see if it’s the perfect role for you? Then a short course in management is perfect for you!. A short course gives you a broad overview of a manager’s role and can enable you to specialise in a particular area of management. Short courses will vary in the length of time these take to be completed but can generally be finalised within a matter of weeks to months, with many short courses online.

Certificate

With certificates available that offer entry-level through to more advanced skills in management, this can be a great study option for those either starting in business or wanting to advance their background and knowledge after already working in the field. A Certificate IV in Leadership and Management can help you develop supervision and management skills in conjunction with operational, team building and leadership tasks.

Diploma

A Diploma of Management requires no pre-requisite study and provides you with a comprehensive background and skill-set in staff, resource and project management. You can also study a double Diploma to get a more in-depth understanding and range of skills in related disciplines, such as a Diploma of Leadership and Diploma of Business.

Bachelor Degree

For those wanting a detailed and in-depth background and skill-set in all facets of management, an undergraduate qualification would be a smart study alternative. A Bachelor of Business Management requires three years of full-time study and provides students with access to an extensive range of careers in the management field. Those who have studied a Diploma may also qualify to have their first year of study cross credited.

Postgraduate

To undertake a postgraduate course students need to have already undertaken a Bachelor Degree or equivalent. A postgraduate degree is the most advanced study in management available and allows students to specialise in an area of management they prefer. After completing a postgraduate degree, students also have the knowledge and skill-set to teach in management related disciplines.

If you’re thinking of embarking on a career in management and you have some of the following traits or behavioural characteristics, then there’s a good chance that it could be right for you

Are you the Type of Person Who is…?

  1. A good communicator and can give clear and detailed instructions of tasks that need to be completed. If others have done something well you are the first to give praise and you understand how important recognition is in building self-esteem.
  2. You’re always willing to take the time to listen to how others are feeling and work on increasing cooperation through avoiding grievances and alleviating tension. The majority of the time you’re able to stay calm and maintain yourself control, as well as act maturely and behave appropriately in a range of different scenarios.
  3. Delegation comes naturally to you, as well as being able to coach and teach others to grow their confidence and skill-sets.
  4. You have the ability to gain respect through acting honestly and fairly to all. Even if you get along better with certain personality types, you are able to be professional and avoid favouritism.
  5. Your dedication is shown through your consistent performance and you demand the same high standards of performance from those around you.
  6. You are approachable and easy to talk to, so others are comfortable discussing tasks, concerns or grievances with you.
  7. Even though you’re in charge, you’re always humble and show respect to all those around you, including those above you and underneath you. You also demonstrate an understanding of others instead of judging or always trying to moralise with them based on what you believe is right.

 

Find the course that’s ideal for you – it could be one of the best executive decisions of your career.
