About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Management stimulates initial development of critical thinking in applied management through extending undergraduate achievement in areas related to their original accomplishment. The programme enables recent graduates opportunities for academic achievement in advance of their undergraduate qualifications and to make a solid start in higher level, constructive and functional applications of knowledge and initial management experience. The programme enables people already working in management roles to commence applied professional development related to their employment context and potentially of direct improvement impact on those businesses. This qualification is suitable for students who want to enter the Master Programme, but who do not meet the entry requirements, or students who only want to obtain a specific body of knowledge without a research project. All courses in the Master of Applied Management programme at level eight are available to students enrolled in the Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma in Applied Management.
