    Graduate Certificate in Business Studies - International [35A1]


    The Graduate Certificate in Business Studies is designed to ensure you are equipped with the skills and knowledge to succeed in postgraduate business programs. You will cultivate your skills in critical thinking and analysis, reflective practice and professional presentation, as well as developing an understanding and knowledge base of contemporary business theory and practices around marketing, accounting and organisational management.

    This Graduate Certificate is ideal for those students who intend to undertake postgraduate coursework programs with the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics, but have never studied at university before. For more information about this course please refer to the

    The Professional Accounting suite of courses are primarily designed for graduates with an undergraduate degree, from disciplines other than an accounting major, to develop skills to meet the entry requirements necessary for Associate Membership of the professional accounting bodies.

    Students are treated as adult learners with a wealth of experience and with no accounting knowledge. The course utilises a ‘flipped” classroom to deliver content, with workshops used to develop student learning, communication and application skills. The accounting profession now places a strong emphasis on the importance of “soft skills”, and these as well as critical problem solving skills are best practised in a workshop environment.

    Through this context, students develop skills to question and find solutions by applying their technical knowledge and ability to research authentic situations in the accounting context. Students also learn to interact within diverse groups and communicate their findings to both accountants and non-accountants through the most appropriate method.
