Diploma of Business (UniLink) (8 months)
Want to know how to become an innovative and invaluable player in the modern world of commerce? The Diploma of Business (UniLink) gives you an alternative pathway into higher education. You'll learn in a supportive and friendly university environment that prepares you to make a positive social impact in business contexts.
Study Business to learn about the entrepreneurial mindset. Better yet, you’ll gain practical skills that you can apply to a range of business operations. You'll learn how to do this as an individual, and as part of a team.
Get broad knowledge in key areas of commerce, like marketing, economics and accounting. Develop key skills in problem-solving, networking and communication. Learn about information systems and new technologies so you can keep up in a tech-driven industry. Gain expertise in key areas like financial reporting and management strategies for a successful business career. This diploma will prepare you for further study in the modern world of business and commerce.
Over 8 months, you’ll study content that is similar to a bachelor degree, but in smaller class sizes – so you'll have more one-on-one time with your teachers. When you finish your UniLink diploma, you can move straight into a Bachelor of Business at Swinburne, adding no additional time or money to your studies.
