The Curtin Graduate Certificate in Business will provide you with a solid foundation in economics, financial decision making, leadership and organisational behaviour.
This course is relevant for managers at all levels (emerging through to middle/senior levels) who want to formalise their business knowledge and may not have a university qualification, or who have an undergraduate degree in a non-business area.
