If you are a graduate that wants to study selected courses in business, the Postgraduate Certificate in Business (PGCertBus) may be suitable for you.

You may want an introduction to postgraduate study in the Massey Business School. Or you may be looking to study specific courses for your own professional development. Or perhaps you need to gain prerequisite postgraduate courses for another programme. For all of these options the PGCertBus will allow you the flexibility to study in the areas that you choose.
