BSB50215 Diploma of Business

Whether you are looking to start or enhance your career in the corporate world, or are a small business owner aiming to expand your own organisation, the BSB50215 Diploma of Business will benefit you.


Recent changes to the Business Services training package will see the BSB50215 Diploma of Business superseded by BSB50120 Diploma of Business.

Students are advised that this current version of the course will expire on 17th April 2022.

This provides the opportunity to complete this qualification before the newly upgraded qualification being required (the new version of this qualification includes twelve (12) units – an additional four (4) units). To receive this qualification, students will need to complete all of the existing eight (8) units before the expiration date.

If not fully completed by the expiry date, students may be able to transition to the new qualification, although additional assessments will be required.

The College will inform current students on final assessment submission dates and when the new qualification is available to transfer. Contact our course consultants on 1300 887 991 for further information.

Course Content

We wrote the course ourselves, authored by practitioners who are not just qualified trainers but who have worked in various management and leadership roles for many years.

Always check out the course content (and learning platform) BEFORE you enrol. Is it current, contextualised and engaging, or generic off the shelf content? Content quality will make or break your learning experience.

Trainer Experience

Our trainers work in the industry. They do what you want to do, and they will show you how it really works. (Check out the trainers and assessors of other providers, make sure they are not just academics or former students but have actually run businesses or held senior executive roles).

Having a great trainer is critical to graduating with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed.


Our Diploma has been reviewed and approved as providing credit for the University of Southern Queensland’s Bachelor of Business and Commerce, and Griffith University’s Bachelor of Business.

We also have agreements in place with the University of Canberra, University of Wales and Torrens University via Ducere Global Business School.

Check the other provider’s articulation agreements. Have they had their Diploma of Business reviewed and approved by a University?

But wait….there’s more!
