Course Overview

The Graduate Certificate of Global Management (GCGM) is a 4-month full-time course designed to equip students with foundational knowledge, skills, and a global perspective in business and management. This graduate certificate serves as both a stepping-stone towards further education in the Master of Global Business (MGB) program and a standalone certification for those seeking to gain expertise in managing businesses within a global context.

Through the GCGM course, students will develop a solid understanding of management theories, concepts, and practices applied in a global setting. They will acquire the necessary skills to navigate complex business environments, including critical thinking, problem-solving, and effective communication with diverse stakeholders.

Upon completing the GCGM course, graduates will be well-prepared to excel in business executive and managerial roles, offering pathways for career advancement and professional growth.

Student Boardrooms

Teams will meet daily in Student Boardrooms (SBRs) to discuss, analyse and present findings on course material and case studies using techniques we teach you in class – scientific methods, logical reasoning, critical thinking and decision-making. SBRs are a core part of our teaching, and they hone teamwork and presentation skills that you can apply to any professional situation.
