GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration enables students to develop a firm foundation of the understanding of the context and environment of management and organisations in general and enables the students to do this within a standalone postgraduate award.

This course enables managers with extensive relevant experience, but without a prior undergraduate degree in a business discipline, to advance their management thinking through four foundation courses, as a stepping-stone to more advanced courses within the masters.
