Diploma in Business
Why study the Diploma in Business at UNE?
Our Diploma in Business is not just a qualification; it will help you navigate the world of business across a range of industries and occupations. You will develop skills in creative thinking and critical analysis, communication and business decision making. You will be able to develop and lead ethical, social and environmental solutions to meet business challenges.
You will study 8 units from the Bachelor of Business, chosen to give you a solid foundation in accounting, economics, finance, organisational development, and marketing.
We use real business case studies to analyse business data, strategy and management practices. Our units use current business research and industry experts to understand regional and global business trends. We value what you already know about the world of business and through our program of study help you to take your learning beyond the University into your chosen career.
There is also the option to complete a major in Indigenous Organisation Management, which has been specially designed for those employed or associated with an Indigenous organisation. The units in the Diploma have been based on areas identified as being fundamental to the diverse operational aspects of Indigenous organisations - e.g. financial accountability, business law, management, group dynamics and leadership skills.
Pathway: If you complete the Diploma in Business, you can progress into the Bachelor of Business and receive advanced standing for all units completed in the Diploma.
You will graduate from a Diploma in Business as a flexible, all-rounder - your career pathway may include small and large business management; administration or management; Indigenous organisation management; banking; government agencies; human resources; project management; entrepreneur; or business consulting.
