This program was developed by Griffith University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence and funded by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). Without the support of the ACCC the University would be unable to offer this course free of charge, so we thank the sector regulator for their generous and on-going support.
Pre-Entry Franchise Education Program Overview
Each module provides a combination of informational videos and short written documents to help you with your decision processes when deciding to enter into a franchise business, with each module following on from the previous one.
