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
