About this course

The Graduate Certificate in Commerce has been designed to equip you with highly regarded formal qualifications in finance, accounting or information systems, and provide you with the know-how to move into senior management or financial roles.

You'll study 3 of the 4 foundation courses, and can study one course that is a specialist course or a foundation course in the field of your choice (accounting, information services or finance).

The graduate certificate is usually taken by students who want to get a taste of university life without committing to the full master's degree. Often, students can progress into the master's program after completing the graduate certificate if they meet a certain level.
