Deciding to pursue a degree and return to school is a significant life achievement. You want to be confident that your chosen certification is appropriate for your needs.
An MBA (Masters of Business Administration), while impressive, is a significant investment of your time and finances and may not be suitable for those at the start of their careers. A Diploma of Business BSB5012 is a perfect entry-level qualification for those looking to upskill within their industry and start the road to higher management positions.
Is it better to get a diploma or an MBA?
A Diploma in Business will provide comprehensive foundational knowledge of the subject of business and focuses on practical skills that are immediately relevant to any position or role.
An MBA, however, draws on previous credentials, qualifications or work experience in senior management. Much of the learning is theory-based, focusing on advanced management topics that might only apply to a handful of senior organisational administrators.
Starting your career journey
Your Diploma will put you on the fast track to a career in business management and provides a broad range of skills you need to thrive in any administrative role.
Obtaining an MBA may, without relevant business experience, make it more difficult to land the initial roles you want, leaving you stuck between being overqualified and under-experienced.
Our qualification also allows you to combine your Business diploma with another valuable diploma, such as the Diploma in Leadership & Management (BSB50420).
Planning for the future
The rise in pay that comes with a diploma will help you save and prepare for a future MBA should you require it. Your certificate will also open doors to positions that will provide you with the necessary job experience to complete your MBA more quickly, saving you money in the long run.
A Diploma has the best blend of core and elective tutorials.
An MBA is a more extended programme than a Diploma because it requires you to study subjects such as economics and accounting, which might not be interesting for some people. Overall an evidence-based approach towards learning can help advance one’s business career goals in addition to acquiring valuable skills needed by top managers today – all this takes time investment and provides long term payoff concerning how successful they will eventually become within their field! A good way would consider getting started right away is by earning yourself both academic credentials.
