Graduate Certificate in Applied Business

Independent Schools Victoria (ISV), in partnership with Swinburne University of Technology, delivers accredited leadership programs. This partnership provides participants with an opportunity to achieve units towards the Graduate Certificate in Applied Business. These units have been contextualised to meet the specific needs of Independent schools.

Completing the Graduate Certificate in Applied Business as a qualification in its own right is a rewarding experience that will enrich participant’s management and leadership knowledge and skills. It is also a first step and pathway towards a Master of Business Administration (MBA).

The Australian Professional Standard for Principals sets out what contemporary Principals are expected to know, understand and do to be successful leaders of innovation and change in the management of a school. These programs are designed to further develop Principal’s capabilities and prepare senior leaders and aspiring leaders for future senior roles.

Completed through a series of four-day workshops per unit and incorporating relevant workplace-based projects, the course aims to support participants in their personal development and learning and to have immediate impact in their current role, while recognising the demands of busy school schedules.
