What is the Diploma in Management Studies 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. The program is a post-graduate diploma and provides students with the opportunity to learn and apply the foundations of management. Students in the program are provided with opportunities to apply their knowledge in real world learning activities in the classroom including through case studies, live client projects, and in-class exercises.

The program consists of 5.0 courses including courses in marketing, business communications, organizational behaviour, leadership studies, financial accounting, managerial accounting, operations management and strategic management.
