Progress your career in business management and leadership with entry from your diploma

Chisholm's Business programs combine the work-ready elements of diplomas and advanced diplomas with the broad business knowledge and expertise gained through studying a higher education degree.

The Business (Management & Leadership) program provides the opportunity for real-world learning. Students build skills in the vital areas of strategic management, change management, global management, entrepreneurship, risk management, decision-making, and leadership, as well as providing a sound grounding in accounting, finance, economics, marketing, business analytics, information technology, and law. Students also get the chance to engage in team-based work-integrated learning projects, solving real industry problems and benefiting from real-world learning.

Our Business (Management and Leadership) program is three phased, with phase one consisting of a Diploma. The second phase of the program delivers the Associate Degree over one year. Students can receive additional credit via entry from an Advanced Diploma of Business. Students have the option to leave the program at the conclusion of this year with a recognized Diploma (or Advanced Diploma) and an Associate Degree of Business (Management and Leadership).

The third and final phase of the program consists of a further year of study and the completion of the Bachelor degree. Students who complete this phase leave the program with a Diploma and a Bachelor of Business (Management and Leadership).
