Graduate Certificate in Leadership

The Graduate Certificate in Leadership is a postgraduate program that is nested in the Master of Leadership. This is designed for senior leaders without a bachelor degree to begin formal studies at a postgraduate level. Leaders without a bachelor degree can apply for this course if they have a minimum of five years’ of relevant senior leadership experience.

Graduates will be equipped with not only a broad understanding of leadership principles, but also with critical and creative thinking skills which are valuable to any professional context. This award also provides the opportunity for students to explore the implications of their faith within their vocational and professional contexts.

The next intake for the Graduate Certificate in Leadership is July/August 2022.

“Far from information only, AC's leadership course was delivered with wisdom and compassion from proven and trustworthy leaders and punctuated often with heart-hitting facts. The highest objective was to shore up authentic relationship in Christ, so that the local Church would be strengthened and therefore the Kingdom of God advanced.”
