    Course Summary

    Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s School of Business also offers a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration program in which you can qualify for a Diploma in either Global Business Management or in Green Business Management and Sustainability.

    The Global Business Management diploma will see you gain a deep practical and academic understanding of the modern, globalised business world as well as the management and leadership tools they will need to thrive in it. You’ll learn more than business procedures and leadership techniques, though. You’ll be able to explore advanced modules in the kind of skills you’ll need to operate a business on a global level. 

    The degree program includes opportunities to explore leadership and management on the commercial level, as well as several different co-operative and experiential learning options. Some of the courses may even include a service-learning component, where you will apply what you have learned in the Vancouver Metro Area.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    To really make the most from this program, students should be eager to learn about the modern competitive environment, and prepared to research their specific interests in depth. You’ll also gain experience applying your new skills in practice. You should have a firm interest in intercultural communication, international business and fostering increased globalisation.

    You should already have good written and verbal communication skills, as well as a basic business education.

    • Change Management and Digital Transformation for Business
    • E-commerce Design and Digital Marketing

    Learning And Teaching

    KPU’s Business Administration program is delivered primarily through lectures, skills workshops and business simulations. Some modules may be available as distance learning or blended learning programs. In addition to learning in the classroom and the studio, though, you’ll have access to experiential learning (internships, practicums, and co-operative courses), extra-curricular learning where you can meet new people and gain experience both on campus and off, and co-curricular experiences which can dramatically improve your employability.  

    Career Possibilities

    Many recent graduates of KPU’s Business Administration program have in fact gone on to study leadership, management or business administration at higher levels, or have sought professional certifications of various kinds. However, even more have gone directly into the job market, turning their Graduate Diploma in Business Administration into a thriving career. They have accepted roles as purchasing managers, advertising, marketing, and public relations managers or corporate sales managers, or taken roles in business management consulting.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration.

    Applicants to the Business Administration program must first be admitted to the Business School. This will require a good first degree in any field.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
