The Graduate Certificate of Business Administration is a must if you want foundational knowledge and skills to boost your career prospects or launch into further tertiary study with a Swinburne MBA.

The only constant is change, so the Graduate Certificate aims to develop your ability to embrace and deal with uncertainty and turbulence in your work environments.

The four foundation subjects are:

  • Business Information Systems
  • Management Analysis and Problem Solving
  • Business Sustainability and Social Impact
  • Future Management Skills
Course entry is based on your previous study and/or relevant full-time work experience. The qualification is usually completed through flexible online or on-campus study over six months.
