Postgraduate Certificate in Business Management (PGCertBM)

Start a career in business management in local and international business by completing this 60-point qualification.

Programme overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Business Management (PGCertBM) is designed for new and recent graduates from any field who are seeking a short qualification in business management. You will be able to acquire knowledge and skills that will equip you to enter or progress a career in fields related to business management in local and international business.

A specialisation in either Digital Marketing or Strategic Management will develop capabilities that will enable you to apply analytical and solution-seeking skills to organisational challenges.

The PGCertBM provides a pathway for graduates who are uncertain about committing to a masters programme, and for students seeking to qualify for entry to the Master of Business Management (MBM).

Courses passed for the postgraduate certificate can be reassigned to the 180-point MBM, provided you meet the minimum GPA entry requirement and the postgraduate certificate has not been awarded.

The PGCertBM also serves as an exit qualification from the MBM for students who are unable to meet the GPA requirements for progression to the advanced courses.

This programme will be offered from April 2021, subject to regulatory approval.

If you are keen to get started in 2020 and would like to discuss your options, please contact us.
