New AGSM Graduate Certificates place emphasise on developing in-demand leadership skills
AGSM @ UNSW Business School has launched a new suite of Graduate Certificates that offer students the opportunity to gain specialist post-graduate business credentials in contemporary fields including Digital Innovation, Strategic Management, Leadership, and Technology Management.
“The AGSM Graduate Certificates have been designed for today’s leaders who want to accelerate their leadership skills and knowledge in order to lead teams, projects and organisations more effectively by tailoring their own learning experiences to meet their development needs,” said Dr. Michele Roberts, AGSM Academic Director.
These flexible programs are facilitated by world-class academics and industry practitioners who create dynamic and interactive learning experiences for a virtual and/or face-to-face mode of delivery. Students are immersed in active learning experiences and exposed to the practical tools and skills needed to not only succeed, but to thrive in today’s accelerated world.
“AGSM Graduate Certificates are a flexible, omni-channel approach so students can study in a mode that suits them. Whether you choose to study your courses either fully online or face-to-face or you choose to study in a blended delivery mode by selecting courses in online and face-to-face modes,” Roberts said.
Graduate Certificates are a unique part-time qualification that allow learners to develop subject matter expertise within a specialised contemporary field in high demand, including innovation, entrepreneurship and digital technology.
“These Graduate Certificates include a number of key benefits as they have been designed to offer maximum flexibility and convenience so you can fit in your studies around your current life-style,” Roberts said.
“You’ll develop a valuable business network through AGSM’s collaborative eLearning platform, and engaging classroom experiences, working with other talented individuals who’ll bring a wealth of experience to the digital and face to face classrooms.”
Students will be able to immediately apply the concepts and tools they learn during the program to their work to accelerate their current career or use their new skill set to discover a new career path or launch their own enterprise.
Each program consists of four courses each worth six units of credit meaning students can complete a qualification in two terms.
“Students will also gain stackable credentials that can be articulated into one of our world-ranked MBA programs, if you choose to continue your study. Students are encouraged to study their chosen Graduate Certificates core course first, as this will create a student support network and will help you throughout the program and maybe even into an MBA,” she said.
Graduate Certificates will appeal to business professionals who are looking to develop subject matter expertise with a specialist credential in a contemporary area of growing demand. Students will also learn the practical skills, techniques and knowledge to achieve success in their organisation while building a collaborative learning environment and developing valued relationships
