CG01 - Diploma of Business

About Business

It’s all about management. At some time in your working life you will have to manage something. It might be a section or department of a company or corporation or in the government sector. It might be a hospital ward or it might be your own business.

This program is primarily focused on students intending to study part-time via distance education; however on-campus options are available in some majors. 

Whether you are just starting to consider your future career or have been working for some time, there is a CQUniversity business degree that can be tailored to suit your particular situation.

Your career or future career may be in accounting, consulting, finance, marketing or with a non-profit organisation; or you may be more interested in actually managing the work force.

Study Mode

Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available

Career Opportunities

There are no limitations to where a business degree can take you. Graduates choose from a broad spectrum of occupations including administration officer/manager, economics advisor, quality manager, accountant, human resources manager, marketing manager, logistics manager, purchasing and materials manager – just to name a few. A business career offers diverse employment opportunities and the ability to advance from an entry-level position to supervisor, manager, consultant or senior executive within business, government or non-profit organisations in the industry of your choice.
