Course details

Summary

The Diploma for Graduates (DipGrad) can be used for many purposes, and in some cases, effectively provides an additional major. It requires you to do at least seven papers, of which at least four are at 300-level or above. The programme is designed for graduates and may be completed by full-time candidates in one year or by part-time candidates over more than one year.

A DipGrad is a great way to retrain or to update existing qualifications. Many students also find it a convenient way to continue learning and that it is a useful bridge to postgraduate study.

In recent years the sports industry in New Zealand and elsewhere, has grown exponentially and become increasingly business-orientated. Its development extends across many sectors of the economy from sports-oriented marketing, law and tourism, and event management to the personal fitness industry and athlete/sport management. There is a growing need for qualified managers for sport, recreation and leisure organisations and businesses - careers available to students who are enthusiastic about sport, and academically qualified in both business and sport-related subjects.

The University of Otago offers courses in the Schools of Business and Physical Education that provide strong business skills, business acumen, and a scholarly and practical understanding of sport, recreation and leisure, for graduates seeking careers in sports-related fields of business.
