Course overview

This course covers a range of topics relating to aspects of organisational management and the development of core capabilities crucial to business leadership.

Fees and charges

The tuition fees you pay are calculated depending on the course you choose.

The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students completing this course within the same year in which they started. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the length of your course and any approved Credit for Prior Learning you have.

Each unit you enrol in has a credit point value. The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is calculated by adding together 4 credit points of a typical combination of units for that course. Four credit points is used as it represents a typical enrolment load for a Graduate Certificate.

You can find the credit point value of each unit under the Unit Description by searching for the unit in the Handbook.
