Diploma of Leadership & Management

The Diploma of Leadership and Management (BSB51915) reflects the role of individuals who are engaged to manage the work of others or to add value to or review management practices. Their role may be in any industry or organisational setting. Typically people in these roles will have considerable experience in their respective industries (and within their respective countries) or vocational areas and combine an informed perspective of specific work requirements with their managerial approaches.

The qualification requires a sound theoretical knowledge base and managerial competencies to plan, carry out and evaluate own work or the work of a team. The delivery format is one of sharing experiences and creates a truly international environment as students relate experiences and theories during discussions and group work. Nine of the 12 units are delivered in the classroom whilst three units are completed on-line.

Subjects:

  • Leading high-performing teams
  • Overseeing staff performance and development
  • Developing workplace performance initiatives
  • Nurturing important business relationships
  • Managing budgets and company finances
