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. Cooperatives and mutual organizations are, technically speaking, profit making, but the profits go to members and customers.  The Certificate is offered online and while I could not quite work it out from their website, and 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 of this education on thinking about the customer, rather than just profit.
