Job promotion tips. Boost your career at a lower cost.
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.
Roads Less Travelled Executive Services director Greg Malone has an MBA from Monash University and has also completed short management courses at Monash and Melbourne universities, North Western University (Kellogg Business School) in the US and IMD (Institute of Management Development) in Switzerland.
An experienced employee and employer, Mr Malone looks for short courses on CVs as it shows the applicant is up to date and has focused on a particular area. “They’re fantastic,” he says.
Australian tertiary institutions offer an array of “mini-degrees” across most disciplines, including business, humanities, arts, engineering, environmental science, law and computing.
