Purpose of the Program

The Graduate Certificate in Marketing is an early exit point for those enrolled in the Master of Marketing. The program aims to broaden knowledge and skills for students entering with a qualification in an unrelated discipline, while students from a related discipline will deepen their existing knowledge and skills.

Marketing is critical for success in competitive, dynamic and increasingly complex business environments. People with marketing skills and knowledge are important to businesses, helping them work out how to create, capture, communicate, and sustain customer value, and promote continued growth and competitiveness. This program addresses the need for specialised marketing expertise particularly for those whose career development and interests are leading into marketing, product and brand management.

The Graduate Certificate in Marketing draws on contemporary practices, strategic thinking, branding, design, creativity and innovation to build your marketing knowledge and skills.  As a graduate, you will not only develop discipline-specific knowledge and skills, but also learn to draw connections across different fields of knowledge and relate this knowledge to complex real world situations. Using integrated theory and real world application, this degree will expose you to a range of interactive learning experiences such as seminars, guest presentations, strategic cases, social media technologies and e-learning, and applied industry projects.

This program is delivered on-line.
