The Graduate Certificate of Social Impact is designed for high-performing students who are looking to build skills and advance careers in the philanthropy and not-for-profit sectors, social enterprise and entrepreneurship, and social innovation-facing positions in the commercial and public sectors.
The course addresses social investment and philanthropy, social entrepreneurship and innovation, creativity and design, and corporate responsibility and accountability. You will learn the core capabilities required to lead people effectively in a changing social economy and business environment and to develop innovative responses to complex social and business problems. The course allows articulation into the Master of Social Impact.
