To be advised


The Graduate Diploma in Business is designed for students who wish to extend their knowledge in general business principles and practice. The program is flexible in structure, allowing students to take a number of broad business units, or to take a sequence of units relating to a specific discipline.


The learning goals associated with this course are to:

  • develop analytical skill in a business discipline
  • introduce relevant theories which can be applied to real world issues
  • enhance oral and written presentation skills
  • provide the foundation for ongoing studies in business.


Students must complete a total of eight graduate units with a minimum of six units from the Faculty of Business and Economics.

In order to proceed to a masters degree with full credit for the eight completed units, these units must include at least four core units from the relevant masters degree. Students should consult their course director regarding their specific choice of units.

Progression to further studies

Students who successfully complete the Graduate Diploma in Business with a minimum of a credit (60 per cent) average may be eligible for admission to a masters program in the Faculty of Business and Economics.
