Graduate Diploma in Commerce

The Graduate Diploma in Commerce (GDipCom) is offered in the School of Management in Human Resources and Industrial Relations, Management and Tourism.

The GradDipCom is a one-year full-time (or up to three years part-time) programme open to graduates, though students near the end of their degree may take some papers towards their diploma as long as they complete the degree before formally entering the diploma.

Graduate Certificate in Commerce
