Business and Management courses

Combining practical skills training with a Christian ethos, these courses help students to succeed in all they do. Certificate programs can be completed in a semester or one year (full-time equivalent) and can lead into a diploma or a bachelor degree. Diplomas can be completed in two years (full-time equivalent) and can lead into a bachelor degree. Practical experience form part of most of our vocational programs.
