The Graduate Diploma in Business Administration is designed to develop and integrate the broad-based, functional knowledge needed for career development. As a result, this program will be of particular interest to graduates from non-business disciplines and working professionals seeking the required business skills to aid them in the commercialization of an innovation, the expansion of an entrepreneurial endeavour or the pursuit of a managerial position. Successful students have the opportunity to transfer into the MBA program.
This is not a funded program.
You can begin the full-time and part-time GDBA program in September or January. Part-time students may also begin in April.
Course-Based – Eight months / 10 courses (full-time)
