Accelerate with management essentials

Our graduate certificate provides key business insights designed by a leading Australian university and is ideal for managers seeking an introductory management program or wanting to acquire new skills without a lengthy time commitment.

What will you do?

Through an interactive environment delivered face-to-face in Singapore you will:

  • explore the fundamentals of leadership and develop your own personal leadership philosophy
  • consider the nature of systems so you can influence their outcomes more profoundly
  • gain insight into the world of marketers and accountants so you can speak their 'language' to empower your decision-making.

The graduate certificate can also lead into our Adelaide Master of Business Administration, the only MBA offered by an Australian Group of Eight university on campus in Singapore.
