Diploma of Business - Enterprise

Victoria University (VU)

The Diploma of Business (Enterprise) provides students with the opportunity to prepare for transition into university studies and further studies in the Bachelor of Business (BBUS) and/or for transition to the workforce at entry level. Students undertake a structured introduction to tertiary studies in a context in which they are introduced to a range of common business disciplines and in which they are supported in their studies through scaffolded learning and assessment. Upon successful completion of the Diploma of Business (Enterprise), students will be eligible to receive a guaranteed one year block credit into the Bachelor of Business (BBUS) qualification at Victoria University (VU). Students who decide to pursue an employment opportunity and not continue their tertiary studies will acquire a range of skills relevant in the business world to commence a successful career and will be eligible to graduate with the Diploma. This course is delivered in a blended delivery model which allows the students to increasingly take responsibility for their learning by accessing resources and completing activities in an online environment prior to attending a facilitated face-to-face session that progresses and applies the learning.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
