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.

You can now choose from an increased range of subjects taught by leading Indigenous academics in the fields of Indigenous business leadership, Indigenous business ecosystems and the Indigenous philosophy of business. Students may also choose a subject in analytics, accounting, economics, research, finance or 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. This includes three compulsory subjects – Indigenous Business Leadership, Indigenous Business Ecosystems and Indigenous Philosophy of Business.  The fourth subject is an elective in topics ranging from marketing to analytics and finance. All subjects are taught online to provide flexibility.
