The program is designed with a large amount to flexibility to enable the participating organisation to structure the program in a manner that best suits their organisational needs. 

A general Executive Graduate Certificate in Business Management may be comprised from a selection of Human Resource Management, Marketing, Finance, Management, and / or Entrepreneurship and Innovation courses.
