The Graduate Diploma in Business Administration concentrates on the primary functional areas of organizations and their interrelations. At the end of this diploma, students will not only have a solid understanding of the functional areas within an organization, but will also appreciate how those areas inter-relate.

  • Identify, analyze, and propose solutions to issues within and between fundamental areas of business
