What is a graduate certificate?

A graduate certificate is a short, focused postgraduate program designed to provide subject matter expertise in specific areas. At AGSM, our business graduate certificates can be completed 100% online or with face-to-face options in Sydney and give you the flexibility to shape your studies to suit your lifestyle and career goals.

Why study a graduate certificate?

Graduate certificates are ideal for professionals looking to enhance their skills quickly. Our business graduate certificates focus on contemporary challenges and focus areas across business and leadership, such as Sustainable and Inclusive Business, Change Management, Strategic Management and Digital Innovation. They provide a valuable stand-alone qualification but are often used as a stepping stone to an MBA. At AGSM, a graduate certificate gives you 4 course credits into the MBA.
