What will I learn?

The Graduate Diploma in Management is an 8-unit program which takes approximately 1.5 years to complete.

The Graduate Diploma in Management challenges managers and leaders to develop more effective and ethical processes and strategies in their organisations. Our postgraduate units incorporate Biblical and Christian intellectual perspectives in the world of strategic management. The Graduate Diploma in Management is especially relevant to managers of profit and not-for-profit organisations who need to develop their management knowledge and skills. The Graduate Diploma in Management is delivered via a concentrated model, where students undertake one unit per study period of six weeks. This allows students to focus on one unit at a time and gain in-depth knowledge and skills.
