Become an effective manager

This Postgraduate Diploma blends theoretical knowledge, practical activities, and small-scale research to provide specialised insight and critical understanding of business challenges. You will enhance your independent research and personal development skills, bolstering your capabilities in managing people and workplace processes.

Learn strategies to boost your team's productivity, navigate organisational change, and handle social and organisational complexities. You will improve your performance monitoring techniques, leverage current and emerging technologies to achieve business objectives and develop skills in business information analysis, decision-making, and effective communication.

The programme offers up to 10 months of full-time study (or part-time over a longer period) with open entry for degree holders from all industries. You can study face-to-face on our Nelson campus and choose from different majors, subject to intake availability. 

Use recognition of prior postgraduate study or extensive work experience to skip courses where you already possess the necessary skills and knowledge. This comprehensive approach ensures that you gain the expertise needed to become an effective manager in your field.
