Graduate Certificate in NDIS Business Development

The implementation of the NDIS is a major social change in Australia. UNE, along with relevant stakeholders, has developed a specialist program for appropriate personnel in disability organisations to help them navigate
the legal and business frameworks to deliver client focused services. The Graduate Certificate in NDIS Business Development has been developed in consultation with well-established disability organisations, to ensure that the
degree provides the skills and knowledge the sector require.

The Graduate Certificate in NDIS Business Development (GradCertBusDev) will equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to effectively identify, analyse and resolve management issues through a
program of study to enhance their understanding and appreciation of the issues affecting the disability sector.

UNE is the first university in Australia to offer this qualification and is proud to be at the forefront of disability reform.
