Business administration courses

A business administration course will arm you with expertise for a range of careers in several industries. It’s a broad discipline that encompasses accounting, organisational behaviour, finance, economics, marketing and management. 

Shorter qualifications such as short courses, and Certificate II or Certificate III provide students with a good base foundation of knowledge and skills to move into entry-level business administration roles. These qualifications have no entry requirements.

These courses usually include electives that allow you to specialise in areas such as business management, strategic thinking, problem solving and decision making. 

Some students choose to continue on with further study, completing an advanced diploma, graduate certificate or bachelor of business.

Is a business administration course right for me?

Our business administration qualifications are delivered online by TAFE RTOs and reputable providers. Online courses allow for flexible, self-paced learning and usually allow for both full-time and part-time study.
