Signing Up To Our Diploma of Business Course

There are tens of thousands of businesses in Australia – and hundreds of thousands in the wider world. These companies can come and go, but in order to maintain their credibility and services they will need to stay on top of the times. And how can they do that you ask? By employing an expert that can boast a Diploma of Business, of course! At Westbourne College this diploma is one of our most popular – and with it you could go on to help with complete market domination.

What does this diploma involve?

Being part of a business is one thing, but knowing how to maximise its productivity and functionality is something else entirely. That is exactly what this business diploma can help you with and with it, you could go on to pursue a career as a manager that’s able to reap the rewards of a successful enterprise in a way that your competition simply couldn’t hope to understand.

How long can this course take?

In most cases you could be awarded with a Diploma of Business in the space of a single year. Some of our students prefer to pace themselves, so we’d suggest allowing up to two years for completion – but this will depend on the time that you have available, as well as whether or not you’d like to speed the process up.

Being able to study online can be a huge advantage and this course has had its curriculum specially developed to ensure that you can enjoy the potential of an online college, without needing to attend any formal assessments, or even sign up for work experience within a physical working environment. We consider it our job to make your online education as quick and easy as possible, whilst offering the most extensive results in the country.

Are there any particular careers that can be pursued with this diploma?

The great thing about business is that it encompasses an incredible variety of possibilities, industries and sectors. With this qualification, you could go on to do any number of things relating to the management of a business. You could:

  • Establish and run your own successful business
  • Offer your services as a business consultant
  • Provide business development strategies and services
  • And much more

What types of assessments will this course include?

The curriculum that we have developed for our business diploma course is one of the most versatile out there. It enables our tutors to remain flexible as far as assessments are concerned, whilst still ensuring that you, as their student, will get the most from your education. Assessments can take on the form of written exams which can be submitted online, as well as case studies and assignments – all of which can be proposed at the discretion of your tutor, allowing for even more flexibility.

Is this course solely online?

To answer this question it might be best to say that if you want to study online then you can, but if you’d prefer to obtain experience in real-life, then this is an option as well. Our business diploma course is ideal for those that have a few spare hours in the evening, or those that want to study in between working days, or whenever they have some time available. That being said, there’s no harm in receiving physical education if you’d prefer – simply to complement your education.

What can you do with a Diploma of Business?

What can’t you do should be the question! Business is business – and it’s as wide as it is varied.
