About this course

The Graduate Diploma in Business Studies is useful if you wish to keep up with professional developments in your field and are short of time. Or you may have found yourself working in a different field of business to that in which you hold a qualification.

The Graduate Diploma in Business Studies enables you to study another subject without completing a second bachelor's degree. This is an undergraduate diploma, designed for those who do not have a degree in the subject you wish to pursue. You need to be a university graduate to enrol in this programme.

It is a bridging tool to gain the equivalent of an undergraduate major in a specific area so you can go on to postgraduate study.

Entry requirements

To enter the Graduate Diploma in Business Studies programme you will:

  • have been awarded or qualified for a bachelor's degree, or equivalent, or
  • have demonstrated equivalent practical, professional and/or scholarly experience.

You will need to provide verified copies of all academic transcripts for studies taken at all universities other than Massey University.

Career pathways

For those already working in the field, the diploma will give you additional skills and bring you up-to-date on theory and practice. It may also be useful if you have found yourself in a role outside of your key area of specialty and wish to up-skill.
