Why study this course?
In a context of rapid economic and social change, managers are increasingly required to implement transformational change within their organisations. Managing organisational change is the process of planning and implementing change in organisations and minimising employee resistance and loss to the organisation, while simultaneously maximising the effectiveness of the change effort.
With a focus on the fundamental issues related to change management, students will explore and examine key theoretical and ethical foundations for managing change. These include the role of organisational culture and behaviour, the impact of organisational politics on culture and the management of change, and management of sustainable business.
CSU has an excellent reputation for providing quality education delivered by dedicated academics with relevant industry experience. Our lecturers are supported by well researched curriculum and teaching methods. Our online educational environment offers a broad range of technological platforms dedicated to teaching and learning in addition to facilitating communication and collaboration among students and academics.

CSU's Graduate Certificate in Organisational Change has a strong workplace focus and will allow you to develop skills and knowledge that can be readily applied in your professional life. The course provides rigorous assignments that have both a theoretical base and a strong practical emphasis. Assessments are designed so that students are able to directly apply their learning to the workplace. These assignments are tremendous learning opportunities which enable students to test their knowledge and ideas, and receive expert feedback.
It is this focus on application, experimentation and feedback which is essential to developing your business and leadership knowledge and skills.
In many cases, assignments may require you to act as a consultant or business manager to identify business issues and problems and develop creative solutions to overcome these challenges. Throughout their studies, students may undertake assignments requiring the development of a strategic marketing or management plan for the organisation or identifying human resource management problems and recommending solutions for implementation.
