A Diploma of Business qualification can lead to a variety of opportunities in today’s global economy in public service, education, health, manufacturing, service industries, e-commerce, mining and retail.
The Diploma of Business program is designed to provide a range of diploma level study options for students who either do not seek, or are unable to extend the time required, to complete a full undergraduate degree.
As well as having value in its own right as a stepping-stone into a number of career opportunities, students can also gain a streamlined pathway from the Diploma into the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degrees through credit exemptions. That is, once students successfully complete the core diploma units, they can gain direct entry into the second year of the Bachelor degrees.
