Business is a vast and diverse employment sector, so whatever you can do to stand out from the competition is highly valuable. And the initial edge you need—along with a high degree of career flexibility—can be found in Swinburne’s Certificate IV in Business.

Enjoy developing an adaptable range of skills in a team environment. Build your practical organisational and technology skills with core studies around health and safety, emotional intelligence, proficiency in editing documents, analysing big data, using social media to connect with customers and communicating in a professional manner with stakeholders and colleagues.

The certificate has a strong emphasis on:

  • Customer experience (CX)
  • Marketing
  • Financial strategy
  • Problem solving
  • Teamwork
  • Digital technology
  • Data literacy

Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to proceed to higher education such as Swinburne’s Diploma of Business, or to take on the workplace in entry level and administration roles. Potential jobs include accounts clerk, customer service advisor, e-business practitioner, legal or medical receptionist, office administration assistant, student services officer or word processing operator.
