What is this course about?

CSU's Graduate Certificate in Organisational Change is designed for managers who are looking for specific skills and knowledge they can utilise as agents of change.

In a context of rapid economic and social change, managers are increasingly required to implement transformational and frame-breaking change within their organisations.

With a focus on the fundamental issues related to change management, students explore and examine the key theoretical and ethical foundations for managing change. These include the role of organisational culture and behaviour, individual and group ethics and the integration of change within areas of business such as operations, human resource, marketing and finance are also embedded within the course structure.

The course covers these key concepts through three mandatory subjects. Students then have the choice of selecting a fourth subject from a selected list. This allows students to develop further specific areas of management expertise and skill.

CSU has an excellent reputation for providing quality education delivered by dedicated academics with relevant industry experience. Our lecturers are supported by well researched curriculum and teaching methods.  Our online educational environment offers a broad range of modern systems dedicated to teaching and learning in addition to facilitating communication and collaboration among students and academics.

The course provides rigorous assignments that have both a theoretical base and a strong practical emphasis. Assessments are designed so that students are able to directly apply their learning to the workplace. These assignments are tremendous learning opportunities that enable students to test their knowledge and ideas, and receive expert feedback.

As with all our courses, the Graduate Certificate in Organisational Change is designed and delivered with study flexibility in mind. You can choose between full-time and part-time study options so as to fit in with work and lifestyle commitments. You could choose to study just one subject in an academic session or with approval, fast-track your degree completion by undertaking four subjects per session.
