Graduate Certificate or Diploma

Introduction
TAFE SWSi delivers the Graduate Certificate in Management (Professional Practice) and the Graduate Diploma of Management (Professional Practice) in partnership with Charles Sturt University (CSU) through the Australian Graduate Management Consortium (AGMC). The AGMC is a unique joint initiative between Charles Sturt University and TAFE NSW, offering a dedicated pathway for TAFE graduates with supervisory / managerial experience and other professional attainments to undertake Masters level studies. Students are not required to have completed a bachelor degree as AGMC programs are designed to progressively help build strong foundational knowledge, operational skills and strategic capabilities in management.

AGMC programs are delivered face-to-face at Liverpool and Granville Colleges. Class times are tailored to suit busy professionals.

AGMC programs take an applied approach and students will be challenged to draw on their professional experiences and solve management problems within their own organisation.

“I did a Diploma in Management and a teacher encouraged me to look at the AGMC. I loved the program and found it very encouraging. It’s a place where you can build relationships and build a network that will support you throughout your study and perhaps through life.
 
The AGMC course has changed the way that I manage today. It takes the blinkers off and allows you to get lateral management skills. The organisation I work for has seen the benefits and they’ve rewarded me with quite substantial pay increases”.
