Overview

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDipBA) offers an entry pathway to the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme. It consists of the core courses of the MBA programme. Students attend the same classes as MBA students, but do not enrol in elective courses or complete a consulting project.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration gives you the chance to upskill or prepare for a new career in a year and with no prior experience in the subject. A part-time study option is also available.

UC's MBA is accredited by AMBA which is the global standard for MBA's. Only the top two per cent of business schools internationally offer AMBA accredited programmes. Te Kura Umanga | UC Business School is also accredited by AACSB and EQUIS; only one percent of business schools in the world have attained all three.
