The starting point for this qualification is addressing the 5 core units.

Core units are mandatory for every student completing Advanced Diploma of Business. When you look at the core units you can see that these key competencies sit comfortably with having oversight of an organisation. The core units highlight the application of critical thinking in solving the complex problems in an organisation.

There is management of finances and the development and implementation of business plans. In a reflection of modern business values, the core units also look at the leadership in corporate social responsibility and the importance of overseeing the digital strategy an organisation adopts.

Once the core units have been addressed, you complete your Advanced Diploma of Business with a balance of elective units that focus on issues senior managers are responsible for:

  • Managing the organisation’s knowledge and information
  • Navigating organisational change

  • Communication

There are 2 pathways to meet these mandatory pre-requisites to the Advanced Diploma of Business.

  • You can have two years equivalent and relevant full-time experience in a workplace with an operational or leadership role OR,
  • You can have previously completed a Diploma or Advanced Diploma from the BSB Training Package (current or superseded equivalent versions).

For example, you might hold a Diploma of Leadership and Management or a Diploma of Business.

The list of suitable qualifications is wider than these two qualifications but they give you an idea. If you have a qualification that has the code BSB then is followed by the number 5 (so it looks like this BSB5xxxx) then you are going to meet the requirements.
