TUITION ASSURANCE

The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist and support students whose education providers are unable to complete the delivery of their course of study. While provider closures are rare, when a provider does stop delivering a course it can be a worrying and uncertain time for students. The TPS is in place to provide information and assist affected students. In relation to ICHM, the TPS provides assistance and support to:

  • International students on student visas

  • Domestic higher education students accessing the Higher Education Loans Program (FEE-HELP)

Students will have the opportunity to consider the variety of perspectives, complexities and challenges faced by businesses operating in a global economy.

    Key topic areas that will be covered include frameworks and strategies for operating globally, the legal, political, economic, financial and social-cultural considerations and the ethical and sustainable practices to adhere to.

    This subject helps the individual understand the constraints they face as managers and emerging leaders and how they can develop strategies to leverage advantages and overcome constraints and barriers in their organisations. The subject also focuses on developing some of the advanced communication skills necessary in management and leadership roles, and the ability of the individual to influence others.

    In addition, the subject also focuses on the development of knowledge and skills to enable students to identify, analyse and make effective decisions to resolve people-related issues in organisations, facilitate employee development, and develop and sustain effective teams in complex, diverse, and increasingly global operating environments.

    MKT100 Building Blocks of Marketing

    This subject is an introduction to marketing and will discuss the fundamental principles of contemporary marketing such as the marketing mix, the role of the customer, marketing research and survey techniques.


    The aforementioned principles of marketing are demonstrated using situations that students will encounter in their professional practice of marketing.

    ECO100 Economics Makes the World Go Round

    This subject aims to provide students with an introduction to economics as a foundation in business, focusing on micro and macroeconomics, but with an introduction to international economics. Business managers need to be aware of the economic environment in which they work, and the impact this environment has on their decision-making.


    Topics such as demand and supply, fiscal and monetary policy, and international trade will be some of the issues covered.

 

    ENT100 Venture into Entrepreneurship

    The aim of the subject is to introduce the theory and practice of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs as change agents.


    Students can gain an overview of the life cycle of ventures and the resources required. They also assess their own “mindset” and motivations for entrepreneurship to consider their future pathway.

    The subject also introduces the different challenges in entrepreneurship, including the “dark side” resulting from the pressure to succeed.

    ENT101 Entrepreneurial Thinking and Action

    The focus of entrepreneurship has long been how to build companies. Research of highly successful entrepreneurs has identified that they differ in how they think and solve problems and thus create viable ventures.


    In contrast to causal logic based on a goal in the distance, successful entrepreneurs use effectual logic, namely assessing their available means and affordable loss and finding co-creation partners to take the very next step, particularly in light of unavoidable uncertainty.

    Students learn how effectual logic complements causal logic, when both are used, and how effectual logic is foundational in applying the Lean Startup Methodology and design thinking.

    The culmination of the subject is the formulation of an individual learning plan which applies the principles of effectuation on the student’s emerging entrepreneurship future.

 

Study Period 2
    FIN200 Managing the Accounts

    This subject builds on financial literacy and aims to focus on the use of management accounting information to assist in key areas such as planning and decision-making.

    ENT200 Entrepreneurs as Change Makers

    Despite a long history of socially-minded entrepreneurs, the recognition of and interest in social entrepreneurship is a recent development.


    As society continues to be faced with major challenges, social entrepreneurship can play an important role in change-making to develop a more equitable society. Of particular importance in the study of social entrepreneurship is the concept of stakeholders which have a wide range of needs and expectations.

    The keystone work of this course is a framework for a social venture in which success parameters for major stakeholders are defined and measures are designed to ensure sustainability.

    ENT201 Experimenting for Entrepreneurs, not Scientists

    In contrast to the traditional business plan, the Lean Startup Methodology is based on the idea that it only makes sense to do detailed planning of a venture once a viable business model is established.


    The process begins with an overview of the idea in a Business Model Canvas and the formulation of a series of hypotheses and experiments to test the viability of the idea. As hypotheses are discarded or strengthened, the business model is adapted or even changed significantly or “pivoted”.

    The goal is to learn as much as possible quickly and without great expense. Students learn by doing, going through the Lean Startup process and applying it to a business idea, first in a group activity, then on their own, focusing on the learning which needs to take place.

    Only after the viability of the venture is reasonably secure does work go into “scaling”, namely building structures to grow the venture.

 

    BUS200 Innovate or Evaporate

    building knowledge, skills and attitudes required to succeed as an ethical professional. These knowledge and skills are then applied to identify and evaluate innovative high-growth product and service opportunities in the context of a start-up, a corporation, a not for profit or a government institution.


    The subject allows students to practice skills, including creativity, cash-flow modelling, business model analysis and lean experimentation. Students prepare a business plan for a new venture, or an improvement to an existing enterprise, enabling them to innovate and integrate their theoretical and practical knowledge.

    This subject will enable the student to understand the theoretical concepts underpinning the management of a customer centric organisation. Understanding customer needs and designing customer experiences through the application of a range of principles, tools, and frameworks that support the central focus of the customer for continued business growth.

    MKT202 Communicating Your Value

    Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) provides a framework to create and manage brands using a variety of communication initiatives and marketing elements. Students will learn skills to enhance a brand’s profile with new and existing consumers, increase market demand and maximise the cost effectiveness of using different media channels.


    This subject will provide students with the knowledge and skills required to understand and use IMC tools as part of the marketing mix to build a strong brand image and promote brand success. Media channels such as advertising, promotions, public relations, direct marketing and digital marketing will be discussed.

    Students will also have the opportunity to plan and develop an effective and socially responsible IMC plan for a brand whilst taking into account budget considerations and media channels used.

 

Study Period 3
    BUS300 Practising Responsible Business Behaviours

    This subject will equip you with a set of tools for managing the ways you lead and behave in organisations more ethically and sustainably. Explore aspects of ethical behaviour, sustainable development, corporate responsibility and stakeholder thinking.


    It provides tools to help you analyse how individuals and organisations impact on the economic, social, and environmental contexts in which they operate.

    Students will examine why organisations around the world are moving to reduce the adverse effects of business operations on their stakeholders and to become an asset to the communities in which they operate. It introduces you to some of the most common principles and practices associated with individual ethics, corporate ethics and sustainable business practices.

    MGT300 Leadership for Personal Growth

    Leadership in modern organisations is a way of thinking and behaving. Leadership is a process of energising, influencing and motivating others. Becoming an effective leader requires self-awareness, self-management and a strong set of interpersonal communication skills, a set of capabilities that are often described as Emotional Intelligence (EQ).


    In addition, effective leaders think and act strategically, they build a climate for creativity and innovation, and are culturally sensitive and comfortable with ambiguity.

    This subject focuses on developing your leadership capability. It helps you explore your own leadership development and self-image, using the techniques of reflective practices.

    WIL300 Professional Internship

    The professional internship provides a placement opportunity, enabling students to consolidate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in practical, professional settings. Students have the opportunity to achieve subject learning outcomes and complete assessments, integrating theory and practice, facilitate self-reflection and critical analysis.


    In addition to participating in the workforce, with either a host company as part of a structured internship or creating their own entrepreneurship venture, students will also complete a placement project on an issue of strategic value to their host company or own venture, as described in the next section.

    Students will critically reflect upon their own development plan and progress through the preparation of a reflective assessment, considering the impact of identified workplace experiences on their personal development and future career progression opportunities.

    This subject also allows students the opportunity to explore their professional interests; test their industry expectations or possible start-up creations and ideas; apply, practice and develop real world employability skills and form professional networks for future career success.

    Work Integrated Learning (WIL) phases will be utilised throughout the student’s placement experience. The following strategies will be implemented: 

    • Preparatory phase: group discussions of industry case studies, industry presentation, online presentation and pre-industry workshops. One on one discussions with members of the Industry and Career Development (ICD) division
    • Placement phase: industry interaction within the approved workplace, workplace observations and evaluation, online discussions and applied assessment strategies
    • Retrospective phase: reflective practices, applied assessment strategies, industry and ICD evaluation. 

 

    ENT300 Wicked Problems: Entrepreneurial Opportunities

    Poverty, climate change, natural resource management, political polarisation, discrimination, pandemic: there is no shortage of complex, wide-reaching and seemingly intractable problems faced by society.


    Entrepreneurs see opportunity in problems, so “Wicked Problems” are fertile ground for social and for-profit innovators, but they are faced with complexity, wide-ranging stakeholders, many potential scenarios and a sense of urgency. Students are presented with a variety of tools to analyse and address wicked problems and identify specific entrepreneurial opportunities.

    After completing an assessment of problems most relevant to their own interests, students analyse how an existing venture is addressing a wicked problem. All the course elements are then included in an integrated opportunity analysis and action plan.

    ENT301 Growing Your Venture

    Once the entrepreneur has taken their venture through the customer discovery and validation stages of the Lean Startup Methodology, the entity can enter into the scaling and growth phases.


    Students learn why the entrepreneur needs to pay particular attention during the growth phase to building robust governance structures which take the complexity of relationships and stakeholders into account. In addition, they gain understanding about the advantages and disadvantages of various internal and external funding sources needed to fuel the venture growth.

    Most entrepreneurial ventures evolve in a way that requires them to transition to a new phase of stock market listing, trade sale or in some cases, closure. Students learn how to recognise the signals for impending change and how to manage them successfully.

    BUS301 It’s a Risky Business

    MKT300 Marketing in the Digital Era

    This subject introduces students to emerging interactive and digital technologies, most notably social media tools, and discusses ways in which these technologies can be exploited by businesses to more effectively self-serve markets.


    The subject investigates how marketing-related functions are changed by the potential of these technologies, and how these new technologies can become key components of the organisation’s marketing efforts.

    MKT301 Brands Without Borders
