Why choose this program?

This program enables managers with extensive relevant experience but without a prior undergraduate degree in a business discipline to advance their management thinking through four foundation courses as a stepping-stone to more advanced courses within the Master of Business Administration. Griffith's business administration programs are built on three core values that are crucial to doing business in the 21st century: responsible leadership, sustainable business practices and an Asia-Pacific focus.

Griffith University offers a number of study options for Business Administration. Find out more about our Business Administration programs.

Attendance information

The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is offered full-time on-campus at South Bank (Trimester 1 intake) and at the Gold Coast (Trimester 2 intake) and is also available full-time online in both trimesters. Alternatively, the program can be completed part-time at South Bank, Gold Coast or online in both Trimesters 1 and 2.

The program delivery is designed to be flexible to enable students to study courses online or at other campuses if or where the program structure allows. Students will be able to access course materials, participate in learning activities, lodge assessment items and access support services via Learning@Griffith. There is no requirement for on-campus attendance and access to a reliable computer with internet connection is essential.

Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week, as well as in intensive mode (several full days in a row, often including at least some weekend class time). Sufficient classes will be scheduled in the evenings and in intensive mode to accommodate part-time students with employment or other responsibilities that limit weekday course engagement.

You will be classed as a part-time student if you are enrolled in less than 30 credit points per trimester.

Student Income Support

From 2017, to be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.

Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.

Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.

Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
