BSB50120 Diploma of Business


Our nationally recognised BSB50120 Diploma of Business provides students in Years 11 and 12 with an opportunity to fast-track their university pathways and business careers.

The Diploma of Business will provide you with an ATAR equivalency of approximately 84-86, 8 QCE points, and up to 8 credits at James Cook University or Central Queensland University towards a Bachelor of Business.

Students can study online or attend classes on Wednesday and Thursday engaging with like-minded students from a number of schools. Throughout the program, there are a variety of excisions and guest speakers and students participate in a JCU Mentoring Program.

Schools that wish to discuss an in-house program are encouraged to arrange a consultation with one of our VET IN SCHOOLS Consultants.

It provides a wide range of real practical skills that are immediately transferable in the workplace.
