The Graduate Certificate in Business Futures is a highly flexible learning qualification that will help to upskill high-performing senior leaders and prepare them for uncertain business futures. With a range of learning experiences to choose from or create, this degree enables organisations to tailor their employees’ education to meet the demands of your business today and tomorrow.
The initial three units can be chosen or adapted directly from various Curtin offerings. This includes from our Master of Business Administration or a combination of our Executive Education programs. All students complete a capstone experience, which will position them to draw on the tools, frameworks and theories that have been covered in their chosen units or Executive Education programs, to design and implement a project that will transform their organisational work group, department or sector.
Throughout the course, students will learn how to develop innovative ideas and strategies to prepare for future changes, apply and maintain diverse perspectives in the workplace to stimulate business growth, and source and prepare data to help make more informed business decisions.
The Graduate Certificate in Business Futures can be used to pathway into further postgraduate studies if desired. Options to use existing accredited programs can be added as a credit towards this qualification and can be discussed as part of the initial co-design meeting.
Note: Unlike most of our degrees, the Graduate Certificate in Business Futures is not available for individual enrolment – but rather through organisations choosing to partner with Curtin and enrolling their employees in the degree.
