Whilst the competencies prescribed in the training package for BSB80215 Graduate Diploma of Strategic Leadership are presented and assessed in the course, students and trainers are expected by Aerospace Institute to extrapolate the course scope to ensure the contemporary business strategies, organisational learning and the development of people are studied and examined.
