Professional programmes at Wellington School of Business and Government

We offer a range of flexible, tailored professional postgraduate certificate, diploma, and Master's programmes designed for working professionals.

Students are able to fit study in professional certificate, diploma, and Master's programmes around full-time work, either with evening lectures or intensive block courses.

While previous university-level study is an advantage, many programmes do not require it and prospective students may be admitted based on extensive practical, professional, or scholarly experience of an appropriate kind.
