  • Why study this program?

    In the current business environment, it is no longer enough to specialise in a particular area. Employees are expected to have a broad understanding of multiple aspects of a business and their interdependencies, with the ability to implement practical solutions.

    At The University of Notre Dame Australia, we take pride in the individualised education and personalised attention we give to our students. With all subjects taught by leaders in their field, our postgraduate programs are relevant and contemporary, embracing today’s rapidly changing global environment while maintaining academic rigour.

    The Graduate Certificate in Business is a one year part-time (or half year full-time) program taught by a team of industry leaders and academics who are passionate about sharing their knowledge. Throughout the course of your studies, you can choose to explore topics such as strategic management, organisational dynamics, leading change and leadership. And, upon the completion of this program, you have the option to progress to a Diploma of Business, Master of Leadership, or MBA.
