Business Administration

The study of business administration at CQUniversity is ideal if you are interested in gaining an understanding of how business foundations are integrated across key areas, such as accounting, finance, human resources, law and marketing.

The Certificate III in Business Administration focusses on developing business administration skills required to undertake common business-related tasks, like producing business documents, organising schedules, and creating and using databases. The Diploma of Business Administration prepares you for more complex tasks, such as planning and implementing administrative systems, managing payroll, recruitment and staff performance and undertaking project work.

Designed for emerging leaders, our Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma provide you with specialist leadership and management training, and add a valuable edge to your business skills. Highly sought-after, they are also a pathway into the masters.
