Graduate Certificate Professional Management

The Graduate Certificate Professional Management has been designed to provide students with a highly practical and applicable learning experience. Lecturers are real world managers and successfully combine recent studies, theory and practice to challenge and develop students. 

The Graduate Certificate Professional Management is designed for aspiring middle and senior managers who wish to upgrade and formalise their skills and experience. 

Qualification content
The Graduate Certificate Professional Management consists of four foundational units:

We recommend the above sequence of units is followed. However, applicants may gain entry into any one of the units of their choice if doing so supports individual learning and professional development needs. 

Assessments may include: reports, plans, projects, and presentations.

Learning time period
Students have a maximum of four years to complete the Graduate Certificate Professional Management from commencement of first unit of study. However, students generally complete one unit per trimester; this ensures the qualification is completed in four trimesters (16 months). 

AIM recognises that the decision to undertake study is not one made lightly and for many busy managers a work/life/study balance is difficult to achieve. For this reason we have fostered a supportive environment where students are recognised as individuals, with an onsite library and bookshop, professional lecturers and strong peer networks. 

Successful completion
Successful completion of all four units results in students achieving the Graduate Certificate Professional Management. This entitles the recipient to use the postnominals Grad Cert Prof Mgt. A Graduation Ceremony is held once a year for students to celebrate their achievement.
