Your student journey


Skills recognition

Use your existing work experience to attain a Graduate Diploma in Strategic Leadership via Skills Recognition. Simply provide evidence of your competency against each unit of the qualification, and you'll be issued your Graduate Diploma.


Unit exemptions

Once you've achieved your Graduate Diploma, you'll be set to achieve maximum exemptions of up to 6 units off your MBA from an institution of your choice. The units of this qualification have already been matched with those of the MBA, so all the hard work has been done for you.
