If you’re in business and want to be promoted, this is for you. This Diploma covers Marketing, HR, Admin and Finance topics in enough depth to give you a strong understanding of business practices. You’ll gain pride, confidence, knowledge and, importantly, respect, for completing this Diploma.
The Diploma of Business is a more substantial course, which is broad enough to cover areas of business you’ll need to know, yet deep enough to give you a solid understanding of business practices. It’s designed for those who may already have years of experience in any business environment, who want to further develop skills across a wider range of business functions in order to step up to a promotion or take that higher-level job. You could also start this course as an entry-level student and aim high, but you’ll need to be pretty keen and committed, as a lot of the material will be new to you. If you have that drive and ambition, that’s good! … you’ll need that in business. And, remember, if you get stuck, we’re here to help you through.
As this is a higher level, you’re expected answers to assessments should match the increased depth and breadth of the content. This is a highly respected qualification – and will take pride of place on your resume. It tells an employer that you have the skills, knowledge and ability to control high-level projects.
Pride. Confidence. Recognition. Skills & Knowledge. Firstly, you’ll learn how to analyse problems in business, find strategies to overcome them, manage projects, delegate to others, and work to time and budgetary deadlines. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, you’ll find your confidence, and you’ll take pride in achieving this qualification. It’s not easy – it stands as a real credit to those who complete it – but you will earn status, ability and recognition for being a top-level Manager… with all the trimmings that come with that!
In this course, you can learn how to manage and lead a team. Feel comfortable to try a few things, get some real feedback from our Mentors, and then become really good at this before you take on the role. Or, if you have the experience, but not the qualification, then this is a perfect way to get the recognition you deserve. Then, you can then talk to your Manager – confident in your new, recognised abilities from your Qualification – and ask for that promotion, pay rise or both!
In addition, if you’re thinking of starting your own business, then this a great qualification to do. If you have the ideas and enthusiasm, this course will teach you about Admin, Marketing, Human Resources, and Project Management. All things a budding / growing business person needs to know.
Who's It For?
If you just love the feeling of working on a business, and leading from the front, then this is for you. You’ll learn how to manage, operate and control the functions of business at a higher level. This is a more challenging course, designed for those who already have some work experience in business, and / or who are ambitious enough to start with a substantial course. There’s no pass or fail … we just stay with you until you have the skills and knowledge.
