The Graduate Diploma of Business allows you to build on your knowledge and acquire expertise in your chosen area of business practice. The course is suited to people who want to pursue further graduate business studies at a master’s level. In addition to developing your leadership and organisational skills, the course will give you the opportunity to explore key areas of business.

An additional feature of the program is the ability to direct your studies in the area of health and economics, by studying selected health, pharmaceutical and policy units delivered by Monash Business School’s Centre for Health Economics.

Our Graduate Diploma of Business 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 generic skills, including leadership and collaboration.

This program will also give you a taste of graduate study, and can be a pathway to a master’s degree. You even have the opportunity to focus your business studies towards health, with a range of units offered by our Centre for Health Economics.
