Overview

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDipBA) offers an entry pathway to the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme. It consists of the 12 core courses of the MBA programme. Students attend the same classes as MBA students, but do not enrol in elective classes or complete a project.

As part of UC's Executive Development Programmes, the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration gives you the chance to upskill or prepare for a new career in a year and with no prior experience in the subject. A part-time study option is also available.

The UC Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), giving it a top five percent world ranking in business schools. UC ranks in the top 200 universities in the world for Business and Management Studies (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2017).
