Time management is essential to any successful career in business. It incorporates skills that can be transferred into any area of your job and across all job roles, such as; Goal Setting, Prioritisation, Stress Management and Self-Motivation. It is required for effective work patterns, decision making, planning and organisation.
At the core of time-management is the ability to make plans and stick to them. The most successful planning strategies are built on established good habits that lead to positive rewards. However, making long-term goals can be daunting so it is advisable to set smaller short-term goals that lead on to greater long-term objectives.
The Galway Business School module “Learn to Learn” introduces our 1st Year Bachelor of Business students to the importance of time-management in their future business roles. The module teaches students the skills required to carry out effective time-management. Throughout the degree students can use the skills learnt to assist them in their studies and towards achieving better results. This provides them with a strong foundation for effective time-management in their chosen careers.
