Postgraduate Diploma in Commerce (PGDipCom)

The PGDipCom is a full-time course taken over one year, or part-time up to three years. It is flexible and can be structured to meet your requirements.

A PGDipCom consists of six 400-level papers (120 points), whereas a DipGrad typically consists of seven 100-level, 200-level and 300-level papers (120 points of which at least 72 are above 200 level).

If you’ve graduated with a BCom in Marketing (with a minimum B grade average across 72 points at 300-level), DipGrad or equivalent, this diploma offers you a chance to gain a higher qualification. Its status is similar to the BCom(Hons) degree but it is a taught programme which does not involve the completion of a research dissertation.

All our PGDipCom students are expected to enrol in six 400-level MART papers, from MART 448, and MART 460–470. Your choices are subject to the approval of Dr Mathew Parackal.
