About Business Administration

What is business administration?

Business administration is about managing a company’s daily work and planning for its future. This field involves optimising the use of a company’s resources, finances, and technology to achieve its objectives. It combines theoretical knowledge with practical application, aiding in making informed decisions, leading teams effectively, and fostering an environment where innovation and efficiency are appreciated.

Whether you want to move up in a big company, run a small business, or start your own, knowing the basics of how to manage a business is key to doing well in the fast-moving business world.

How do you get into business administration?

In New Zealand, you have a variety of study options to gain the right qualifications for a career in business administration. One pathway is a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. This typically requires three years of full-time study or six years part-time.

For those aiming for higher roles in business, pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a logical next step. Entry requirements for an MBA usually include a bachelor’s degree or a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, along with two to five years of work experience, though specifics can vary by university.

Alternatively, if you’re not ready to commit to a degree or are still exploring your interest in administration, a short course or certificate in business administration can provide you with essential skills without the need for a graduate certificate.

These courses are especially beneficial for gaining practical skills applicable in various workplaces, helping you understand the fundamentals of business operations.

Which course is best for business administration?

They teach you the basics quickly and guide you toward the course that best aligns with your professional goals.

If you want to become a manager or leader, getting a bachelor’s degree in business administration is better. It covers more topics over a few years, making you more knowledgeable and more likely to get a good job.
