Business - B4001


Graduate certificate

Our Graduate Certificate of Business gives you the chance to boost your skills or even take your career in a new direction and explore a variety of business areas.

We’ve curated a selection of units around contemporary business themes for you to explore. Alternatively, you can curate your own experience and select four units from the wide range of units offered by Monash Business School. If you choose to do this full time, you can complete the program in just six months.

Most units are offered outside business hours, off-campus or in block mode - so you can balance your work and study. As you’ll be studying master’s level units, a Graduate Certificate of Business can also lead to a master’s degree, if you decide you want to take your studies further.
