In an increasingly competitive and dynamic marketplace, ongoing education is one way to mitigate risks associated with a changing market and ensure business sustainability, growth and relevance.
The Graduate Certificate in Small Business Management at Charles Sturt University (CSU) has been designed especially for small business operators. The online course consists of four subjects: Marketing, HR, Strategy, and one elective.
CSU has developed a strong industry alliance and partnered with the National Australia Bank (NAB), Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) and the NSW Business Chamber. NAB is offering three scholarships to cover full tuition to complete the Graduate Certificate in Small Business Management. Visit www.nab.com.au/csuscholarship for more information.
Feedback from current students studying the course indicates the utility of the course in helping them to increase business performance.
“I was looking for a university qualification as I believed it would be more in-depth than a TAFE course,” explains current CSU student Amanda White. “I wanted to challenge myself and as I have quite a strong business background I did not want to be learning things I already knew.
“I have gained confidence in my ability, and after completing Marketing for Small Business I feel I have a much better understanding of this subject that will greatly assist with running our business.”
