Online Graduate Certificate in Co-operatives Management and Organisation

The University of Newcastle (Australia), offer a "Graduate Certificate in Co-operatives Management and Organisation". Unlike business courses aimed at those in the for-profit sector, this looks at social enterprises. The not-for-profit sector is normally thought of as very small organizations run by well meaning, but poorly skilled part timers. However, the not-for profit sector makes up a significant part of the Australian economy, employing staff and providing important services. The Certificate is offered online and while I could not quite work it out from their website, I assume the courses for this can be credited to an MBA.

ps: Given the revelations of misconduct from the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry, perhaps the for-profit sector needs some education into thinking about the customer, rather than just profit.
