What is it about?

The Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Business Leadership is designed to enable Indigenous business sector practitioners to build on their own leadership and business practices. This course will teach you to adopt an interdisciplinary, international and evidence-based approach to respond to the complex and growing challenges faced by Indigenous business leaders working in a range of fields/industries.

Subjects are taught by leading academics in the fields of Indigenous business leadership, analytics, accounting, economics, research, finance and marketing. Students from across Australia will be provided with opportunities to work together to address the increasing challenges and opportunities in the Indigenous business sector with a key focus on the practice of Indigenous leadership.

The course requires completion of 50 credit points of study, including a compulsory and intensively taught subject over a week in the winter term, focusing on Indigenous business leadership. Otherwise, the course is offered on-line providing flexibility to design study times around other work and family commitments and study preferences.
