Graduating in June?

Apply for the Post-Graduate Diploma in Management Studies

Applications will be accepted from September 10, 2018 until June 30, 2019 for September 2019 intake.


What is the Diploma in Management Program?
Are you starting to ask yourself the question “What am I going to do after I graduate?” Have you ever considered complementing the knowledge and skills from your undergraduate degree with some business education but aren’t sure about the benefits?

This program is ideal for students who have minimal or limited background in business studies, and provides students with the opportunity to learn and apply the foundations of management. The Diploma in Management Studies at Brescia is a post-graduate opportunity that delivers real life learning activities in the classroom, including cases, live client projects, and in-class exercises. As well, Diploma students may apply to a 4-month paid work placement, where they can apply what they have learned in their studies to a real organization.

For more information regarding this program, please see our Program Information Sheet.
