Level of study: Postgraduate


If you already have a general understanding of business, a Graduate Diploma of Business will help you develop an area of expertise.

This program will allow you to explore the ideas, practices and theories that have already caught your attention, as you continue to develop your expertise in business disciplines as well as build on general business skills, including leadership and collaboration.

As part of this program, you’ll select eight units from the wide range of units offered by Monash Business School. Many units are offered outside business hours, off-campus or in block mode - so you can balance your work and study. But if you choose to do the program full time, you can graduate with a Graduate Diploma of Business in just 12 months.

The Graduate Diploma of Business will give you a taste of graduate study and an opportunity to develop an area of expertise. As the units you’ll be studying are master’s level units, you’ll also be a step closer to completing a master’s if you decide to take your studies further.

You even have the opportunity to focus your business studies towards health, with a range of units offered by the Centre for Health Economics.
