Forget years of study for an MBA or expensive degree, recruiters are increasingly looking for short courses.
With the cost of university degrees set to skyrocket, short courses could soon be the way to go for those wanting to upskill or start a new career.
In fact, a Melbourne executive consultant with several short courses under his belt swears by them and says he now looks for them on CVs when hiring.
