BREAK INTO BUSINESS WITH AC
You’ll be trained by experienced business leaders, industry mentors and specialist lecturers in a supportive and small group environment.
Our courses uniquely combine business skills like management, leadership and accounting with a Christian worldview, so you can learn to integrate your faith with your vocation.
Church and not-for-profit leaders will learn about marketing, building sustainable organisations, understanding the legal environment today and how to be a good financial steward.
"Trust in leaders is eroding around the world and a different type of business leader is needed; the kind that can combine responsibility with integrity and a sense of purpose. AC can shape you into an effective leader, so you can do business differently, and make an impact in the world.
AC also works uniquely with industry by asking our partners, “What do you need?” and by remaining in listening posture, produce innovative and effective answers to big issues. For example, our partnership with schools to provide Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificates to high school students gives students an alternative path after their HSC, whilst still preserving the option of university should they wish to.”
Dean of Business, Arts, Social Sciences and Education

INNOVATIVE DOUBLE DEGREES
The first of their kind in Australia, the Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Ministry, and the Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Theology combine the best from our business and ministry/theology programs.
This is an integrative course which meets the vital need of developing and supporting Christian leaders for 21st century ministry and business. And at 3 years for a Bachelor of Business, why not add just 1 more year to complete a double degree?
“There are plenty of ways to make a difference in business. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if more people understood that having a successful business and finding solutions to realworld problems, especially environmental and social ones, aren’t mutually exclusive?”

"I’m working at two small business now, and my time in the Diploma of Business has helped shape me into someone who can add value above and beyond my job description. The teaching from AC on integrity in business and the importance of personal character have seen me find favour with both bosses and my co-workers."

"The reason I picked Alphacrucis is because of the quality of education it has, the Christian values it provides the students as well as the fact that it has been there for 70 years. The reason I have had such good employment opportunities is that Alphacrucis has taught me skills I never thought that I would have and the Christian values that it gives have been integral in making the right decisions in my workplace."
