Frequently Asked Questions
There’s no single correct answer, as it depends what business studies you undertake: for instance, you could choose the Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management and study topics as diverse as developing and implementing business and strategic plans, how to lead organisational change, marketing plan development and managing risk. No matter where you are in your career, business courses at TAFE NSW are a great way to progress.
Courses can vary in length, from a short course over days or weeks to brush up on specific skills or satisfy new compliance regulations, to a three-year fulltime degree. No matter your goal, we have the course that can get you there.
Again, courses can vary in cost, depending on the length. A short course could be fully government subsidised (ie: fee free), right through to a full three year qualification. With possible scholarships and fee help available, a TAFE NSW business course could be the very thing you need to launch a successful career.
