Diploma in Business
You take four core courses that cover fundamental business concepts:
You also choose four major, minor, or elective courses depending on your chosen major and minor(s).
You develop in-depth skills and knowledge in an area of business, and take courses from a range of other disciplines, either within business or from another AUT degree.
You deepen your skills and knowledge in social impact with the Part 2 core course:
You complete the courses that contribute to your chosen majors and minors.
In the final course focusing on social impact, Design for Value Creation, you work in multidisciplinary teams to address a complex real-life problem.
The Capstone course – a workplace experience, applied project or a new business venture – is the final part of your degree and takes place in your final semester.
The outcomes for graduates of the Bachelor of Business are outlined in the Graduate Profile below.
Add an additional major or a minor to your bachelor’s degree and study another area that interests you. You can choose from a wide range of additional majors or minors.
Other double degree combinations may also be available. Contact your faculty to discuss your options.
You study two degrees at the same time in a single programme of study. It’s usually possible to complete two three-year degrees in four to five years. You need to maintain a B grade average across all courses and do courses from each degree every year.
The difference between double degrees and conjoint programmes is that in the double degrees you apply for and enrol separately in each of the two degrees. If you’re considering doing this, it’s important that you contact AUT to discuss your plans. Double degrees can be completed either one after the other or concurrently.
