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.

A short course will develop your skills and knowledge in an area of personal or professional interest.

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across business and economics.
