The Graduate Certificate in Co-operatives Management and Organisation is the only program of its kind in Australia. Co-operatives, mutuals and member owned businesses (CMEs) have unique legal and economic characteristics that are much needed but have been neglected in the mainstream business and law curriculum.

A qualification in this field will provide you with an advantage if you are interested in pursuing a career in the member-owned (co-operatives and mutuals) and ‘for purpose’ (co-operatives and social enterprise) sectors.

The international co-operative principles and values have a long history of guiding co-operative leaders and managers to provide both economic and social benefits to their members and their communities. CMEs have proven to be some of the world’s oldest, most innovative and resilient businesses. There is a surge of interest in the co-operative model among millennial who are questioning mass consumerism, unequal wealth distribution, insecure employment, social exclusion and environmental degradation.

What you will study

The program will help you to understand the origins, principles and values, strengths and weaknesses of the co-operative business model. You will explore how this business model fits in relation to the sharing economy, and how it offers innovative solutions to solving economic, social and environmental challenges. You will:

Learn about co-operative law in Australia and some of the legal and regulatory barriers faced by co-operative businesses and recent steps taken to remove those barriers.

Build an in-depth understanding of social enterprises and new approaches to measure social impact.

Develop an understanding of organisational and technological innovation in the co-operative sector, such as platform co-operativism, seeking to use digital platforms to distribute rather than extract value from their members.

Career opportunities

The co-operative, mutual and member-owned enterprises (CME) sector is much larger than you might think and it continues to grow both in Australia and worldwide. There are almost 3 million co-ops worldwide with more than 1.2 billion members, employing near 10% of the world’s population. The largest memberships are currently in India (242 million), China (160 million) and the USA (120 million), however co-operatives and mutuals have a long history throughout Europe. Australia, has more than 2,135 CMEs, with 85% of Australian adults being a CME member.

Cooperatives and mutuals have shown strong resilience in the recent global financial crisis, and even under the current tight Australian economy the latest National Mutual Economy Report (BCCM 2017) report that Australia’s top 100 CMEs increased their annual turnover by 6.6%, and annual growth in assets were up 10.5%.
