School of Business & IT
Graduate Certificate in Business Administration
Awarded by The University of Newcastle, Australia
The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration offers a grounding in fundamental business areas such as accounting, finance, organisational behaviour, economics, marketing and management.
Analytic and problem solving skills are emphasised through an applied understanding of the theoretical framework within which today's managers must operate, as well as the acquisition of practical skills in teamwork, writing, presentation and time-management. The ability to cope with rapid organisational and technological change is developed through an understanding of organisational behaviour, information systems and organisational change and development.
This generic course is a stand-alone award, or a pathway to the Master of Business or the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, and is designed to enable students to tailor their subject selection to their areas of interest.
