Course Overview

Equipping you for business life in the fast lane.

As a driven university graduate in a hurry to get to the top, you leave university with good technical knowledge and start your career with little or no business experience. The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PDBA) is aimed at fast-tracking high-potential young graduates into the world of business. By combining a broad understanding of business concepts, practical applications and immediate transfer of learning to the work environment, PDBA students are at an advantage.

Through a combination of classroom lectures, case studies, business simulations, business field trips and syndicate projects, you will gain immediate insight into business. PDBA students are able to access online interactive learning material covering the fundamentals of selected courses from the GIBS website.

​​​​The programme also gives you the opportunity to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills, to manage risks and uncertainty, and gain analytical and financial expertise.

​​​​The PDBA covers the same fundamental business principles as the MBA (Master of Business Administration). It offers six full credits towards the GIBS MBA, which is conditional on students attaining a 65% aggregate in these subjects and commencing the MBA within five years of completing the PDBA.
