There is an intrinsic link between UOWD and the business and government communities, from informing our programs to employing our graduates. Our executive training courses and knowledge exchange programs offer the opportunity for business professionals to collaborate directly with the university, to achieve individual or business development goals. We also welcome the input of industry professionals through guest lectures from executives representing a variety of business sectors.
UOWD offers a series of short courses that provide Certificates of Proficiency in professional disciplines such as accounting, marketing, management, strategy, quality, HR and project management. These short courses are specific modules drawn from UOWD’s postgraduate studies programs and may be counted towards postgraduate degrees at a later date. Please refer to the Short Courses page for further information.
UOWD collaborates with public and private sector partners on a range of knowledge transfer initiatives including collaborative research, knowledge exchange and business consultancy activities.
