Program overview

The Graduate Certificate in Business is an online course comprised of four foundation subjects which provide introductory studies in a range of business disciplines including finance, accounting, economics and management. As a graduate of this course, you will become a critical thinker and problem solver, an effective decision maker, knowledgeable in the areas of management and evaluation of evidence, and be able to articulate management issues, ideas, theories and solutions to a range of audiences.

As a graduate of an online course you will gain the same qualification and graduation certificate as an on-campus student because you will achieve identical learning outcomes from the same academics that teach our on-campus courses. Students who complete the online Graduate Certificate in Business are also welcome to apply to join an on-campus Master of Management program with credit provided they meet the entry requirements.
