Program Description

Need information on our business programs? Start your search at the UNSW Business School website.

The Graduate Certificate in Change Management (GCCM), offered by AGSM MBA Programs, is specifically designed for practising managers with a particular interest in managing change. The GCCM structure is designed to be flexible, with courses being available in 3 sessions each year. Typically, in each session students take 1 or 2, but if other commitments make it difficult to take a course in a particular session, students have the liberty to take no courses. To graduate with the GCCM students need to successfully complete 4 courses which can be completed within 1-2 years part-time.

Program Objectives and Graduate Attributes

The objective of the GCCM is to develop effective agents of change. You and your course colleagues will learn how to influence organisational change, both through your own actions and those of others. The program provides the theoretical foundation for understanding organisational change and the practical skills to facilitate the development and implementation of change statistics successfully.

Benefits to match your interests:
  • to learn the practical skills, techniques and knowledge to achieve successful change in your organisation
  • to develop personal capabilities as a leader and change agent
  • to build re-shaping capabilities in your organisation to enable sustainable change
  • to avoid the common de-railers of change
  • to use new organisation change strategies to ensure sound theory underpins your practice
  • to develop a critical understanding of group and team dynamics
  • to apply the learning immediately with job-specific solutions to current business problems
  • to gain a future perspective on change that will prepare your organisation for tomorrow’s challenges
The GCCM is centred around action learning (also called ‘experiential learning’) which involves drawing on your personal experiences to formulate new concepts. The focus is on students as opposed to instructors. Course exercises and issues relevant to your organisation form the content of the GCCM program. Readings from the course materials and online discussions with study colleagues encourage you to analyse your job experiences in a structured way. The aim is to develop your capacity to formulate new concepts and apply them to course projects and your workplace. Study and research time is optimised through flexible online learning in a collaborative learning environment.
The program is delivered completely online using eLearning technology.
