The Graduate Certificate in Management can be completed in six-months.
The Graduate Certificate in Management will develop your capacity to pivot with purpose, to lead through uncertainty, and to manage your business or organisations through significant change. This AQF Level 8 Qualification is based on contemporary scholarly research, Biblical values, and the Christian intellectual tradition. Each unit of the four-units within the Graduate Certificate aims to develop your knowledge, skills, and worldview to lead and manage in difficult times.
The CHC Graduate Certificate in Management is delivered via a concentrated model, where students undertake one unit per study period of six weeks. Students who enrol in subsequent study periods will complete the Graduate Certificate in Management in six months. This Graduate Certificate is your pathway to further studies as part of the CHC Masters of Business Administration (MBA). The CHC MBA is especially relevant to managers of profit and not-for-profit organisations who need to gain management expertise, and for people in business seeking Christian input to do ministry in their business sphere.

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.
