Flexible online learning
Business NSW (Murray-Riverina) believes in the power of continuous learning and development. That’s why we are proud to support Charles Sturt University’s new Graduate Certificate in Small Business Management.
The online course has been designed to help small business owners and managers develop the management knowledge and skills required to run and grow their businesses, and takes a flexible, industry-focused approach to provide study opportunities with minimal disruption to your business.
Online subjects include marketing, human resources, strategy plus an additional elective subject. Course fees may be tax-deductible, so talk to your accountant or the Australian Tax Office (ATO) to find out if that applies to you.
Business NSW (Murray-Riverina) is a ‘Supportive Employer’ with Defence Reserves Support (DRS). That means we embrace a supportive position for any employee who volunteers for the Australian Defence services. We also keep our member businesses informed about the many employer benefits and employee opportunities that come with your support of the DRS.
