Graduate Certificate in Social Impact

Swinburne University of Technology

The Graduate Certificate in Social Impact (GCSI) program focuses on building the professional capacity of managers and entrepreneurs of the future, across the corporate, government and third (not-for-profit) sectors. Studies enhance students' capacity to lead organisations creating social and environmental value, and their ability to operate in a changed cross-sector social landscape, where the dynamism of the market is also directed at social innovation. The Graduate Certificate in Social Impact is offered by the Centre for Social Impact in partnership with three founding partner business schools from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), University of Western Australia (UWA) and Swinburne University of Technology's Faculty of Business and Law.

Beyond that, we prioritise your learning experience above all else. Swinburne was ranked in the top three in Victoria for student satisfaction, outstripping the national average (QILT Student Experience Survey 2016). 

With that goal in mind, we recently launched the Bachelor of Engineering Practice – Australia’s first engineering degree that uses project-based learning, while eliminating lectures and exams. And that’s just for a start.
