What will I learn?
The Graduate Certificate will strengthen your ministry and the team you seek to build around you. This postgraduate business study will provide you with more breadth of knowledge and skills to challenge and inspire those around you as you lead change. The use of case studies and practical assessments can help prepare and launch new initiatives that will help you pivot in your next phase of your ministry. The Graduate Certificate in Management integrates contemporary scholarly research, relevant industry experience and up to date trends, Biblical values, and the Christian intellectual tradition. The Graduate Certificate in Management aims therefore to build your skill set and strengthen your values as you lead your ministry with a renewed focus.
Taking greater captaincy in your organisation
The Graduate Certificate in Management will enable you to master key business concepts including leadership, finance, governance, and strategy. Mastery of these concepts can help take your church, and para-church organisations, to the next level in terms of compliance and effectiveness. The Graduate Certificate in Management is the first step into an MBA program that will solidify your business fundamentals in the areas of marketing, human resources, and economics. These fundamentals and practical assessments will enable you to analyse the efficiency and effectiveness of your organisation, and help you report to boards and other key stakeholders including donors. This postgraduate business study is aimed to develop your captaincy in your organisation!
Supporting your academic pathway
It may be some time since you’ve engaged in online learning and/or perhaps you have never done any higher education study before. CHC MBA students are introduced to tools and techniques in core units of the course where they learn analytic skills and the practical application of those skills. Our teaching team is here to support your learning wherever you may be joining us from. It is important to interact with the teaching team and other students in our interactive discussion forums.
What to expect
You may not have ever considered postgraduate business education delivered online and in a concentrated 6-week format. It is important to gain clear knowledge of what is expected of you across the study period, including any key dates and deadlines. We would encourage you to invest upfront and set up a system that works for you. A set of subfolders with assessment tasks, lecture slides, and content can help maximise your investment into your own education. Our online orientation can assist you to be ready to go with assignment submissions, referencing guides, and student administration.
Providing you with flexibility in your learning
The CHC MBA is structured so that you can exit early if your circumstances change. You can be recognised with a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma return later to complete your MBA later. We know your schedule can change which is why our flexible study options are designed to suit your personal needs. Our program can be tailored around your ministry schedule.
