For franchisors, the Graduate Certificate in Franchising might make your franchisees or staff more willing to listen and accept your business decisions.
Or, if you work in a franchise head office or are a consultant for one, the Graduate Certificate in Franchising is likely to add to your credibility.
Whatever your situation, it will at least equip you with the skills to really succeed in franchising.
Gain entry on your experience or qualifications
Unlike other franchise training options Griffith University’s Graduate Certificate in Franchising is the only university-accredited franchise qualification and entry can be gained based on your work experience, not just previous qualifications.
Complete Framing Franchisor Andrew Scott hadn’t studied since 1978 and successfully completed the degree. He enrolled in the Graduate Certificate to gain credibility in the sector, particularly with his franchisees. (You can learn about his story in the Information Pack).
And, all business programs offered at Griffith University are internationally recognised by the world’s most prestigious business education accreditation body, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), giving your qualification international standing.
With the Graduate Certificate in Franchising, you will:
You can also choose to study either entirely online (from wherever you are) or face-to-face in Brisbane.
Lectures are run after hours or on weekends, so you can still work full-time while you study. And, if you do choose to study face-to-face you can still access all the course materials online, so if you can’t make a lecture you don’t fall behind.
Franchise expertise shared
Not only is Griffith University internationally recognised as a leader in franchise research and education, Professor Lorelle Frazer is also recognised as one of the world’s leading franchise researchers.
You will also have the chance to learn from industry practitioners, including Franchise Advisory Centre Director Jason Gehrke and a number of current franchisors and franchisees.
Studying alongside other franchise industry professionals you’ll also have the opportunity to exchange ideas and solutions, and draw on each others’ experience – there’s no better way to learn!
