Business

Study business at AUT and you’ll develop the skills, knowledge and values needed to navigate today’s fast-changing world of business and work.

The AUT Business School is internationally ranked and globally recognised, and our graduates now have rewarding careers all around the world.

Professional postgraduate programmes

These programmes are taught in class, and are designed to accelerate your professional career or take it in a new direction entirely.

Research postgraduate programmes

These programmes involve advanced learning by conducting research, which will give you specialised knowledge in an area you've previously studied and transferable skills to stand out in the highly competitive employment market.

The Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Business don't include a research project, but can serve as a pathway into the Master of Business research degree.

A certificate or diploma will give you an introduction to your chosen subject and can prepare you for further study.
