Study Business & Commerce at SIT

If you’re thinking of a career in business, or want to progress in your current role by gaining additional qualifications, we offer a wide range of business courses.

Degree and Postgraduate study

Our flagship business and commerce programmes are the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Enterprise, and the three year Bachelor of Commerce, which offers a choice of three majors - Accounting, Management or Marketing. Both programmes offer an unrivalled mix of academic and practical learning, and are delivered by top tutors. Final year Bachelor of Commerce students complete a consultation paper that provides a solution to a real need identified by their own employer or other industry beneficiary and PGDipBE students complete a dissertation on their topic of choice centered on any innovative business product, service, venture or facility, for which they develop a scoping study that is subsequently developed into a comprehensive, research based business or strategic plan.

Certificate and Diploma level

If you're a school leaver, changing careers or wanting to update your skills to return to the workforce, our New Zealand Certificate in Business (Administration and Technology) is a fantastic first step. Equip yourself with a wide range of practical skills and the confidence to begin employment in an office environment, or move on to further study in the New Zealand Certificate in Business and beyond!
