How a Graduate Certificate Can Start You on the Road to Success

Earn a postgraduate business qualification in just 4 months.

Students of Ducere’s and the University of Canberra’s Master of Business Administration are able to gain postgraduate qualification after their first project.

This Graduate Certificate exit point enables students to commence the program with the knowledge that if their circumstances do change, they can still receive a postgraduate qualification which is highly regarded by employers.

Students engage specifically with the academic subjects of Ethics and Decision Making, People and Culture, and Finance and Administration. Students also explore the themes of innovation and leadership through the completion of an industry project working on strategic issue with a major organisation in the corporate, for-purpose or government sector.

Current students are working with on projects with senior executives at Ducere’s Industry Partners including:

  • KPMG
  • PwC
  • NAB
  • Telstra
  • Save the Children
  • Commonwealth Treasury
  • Commonwealth Department of Education

This enables student to acquire sort after knowledge and leading thinking in key areas vital to successful organisational management, as well as adding a high level project with a major organisation and a postgraduate qualification to their CV in just 16 weeks.

A percentage of students embark upon the program specifically with this intention, achieving a postgraduate qualification well suited to considerations of time or money. These graduates are then in a position to return to the course at a later date if they decide they want to go to achieve their full masters qualification. Often this experience spurs students on to achieve their full masters with confidence in both their ability to succeed at postgraduate level and in the value of the course itself.

Ducere’s courses also provide unique access to Ducere’s Global Leaders Faculty, delivering theoretical and practical insights from over 250 of the world’s most prominent leaders. Students could be applying management insights from the founder of Linfox, or entrepreneurial theory from the founders of SEEK. The faculty includes former Prime Ministers, CEOs, Nobel Prize winners and global entrepreneurs.

As well as these lessons being integrated into online content, students get the opportunity to attend in person MBA cohort days with prominent industry speakers hosted by our industry partners. Current students have attended events at KPMG, NAB and PwC. View a video of our event here.
