About this course

The Graduate Certificate in Business at Curtin University offers you a foundation in leadership studies and business management. With a wide range of business topics to choose from, you can tailor the course your way and choose to specialise in oil and gas or business or to tailor your studies to suit your needs by choosing from a wide range of business topics.

You'll study organisational behaviour at an individual, group and organisational level, and explore issues that are changing how work is conducted, organised and managed in a contemporary context. You'll also have the flexibility to study online or face-to-face or opt for a blend of the two modes.

The course will give you a firm grounding in the basics of business theory and practice.
