BSB50415 Diploma of Business Administration

Great administration professionals are integral to business success, and always in demand. They grease the wheels and ensure daily operations run smoothly, be it in your own business or as an employee.


Recent changes to the Business Services training package will see the BSB50415 Diploma of Business Administration become unavailable and superseded by BSB50120 Diploma of Business.

Students are advised that this course will expire on 17th April 2022.

This provides the opportunity to complete this qualification before it is no longer available. To receive this qualification, students will need to complete all of the eight (8) units before the expiration date.

If not fully completed by the expiry date, students may be able to transition to the BSB50120 Diploma of Business, although, as it is a twelve unit qualification, additional assessments will be required.

The College will inform current students on final assessment submission dates. Contact our course consultants on 1300 887 991 for further information.
