The Graduate Certificate in Enterprise Skills enables University of Melbourne students to complement academic studies with the professional skills needed to energise their careers.

After completing two online series in Employment Fundamentals and associated exams, covering fundamental topics like financial management 101, data literacy and legal issues, you will be eligible for an intensive two-week program held on campus. Under the guidance of a professional facilitator, you will collaborate with a team in a simulated workplace to create a time-sensitive project, putting into practice your problem-solving skills and tackling unexpected challenges.

With the option to undertake the online series alongside your existing studies and the intensive course shortly after completing your University of Melbourne degree, you can gain an additional qualification and the confidence needed to succeed in your future job.
