The Dual Diplomas of Business and Leadership & Management are the ultimate in business focussed qualifications. You’ll learn how to manage a business and a team of staff in depth and across a range of fields. With your acquired skills and knowledge, you’ll confidently create systems and processes, control operations, and delegate responsibilities to others to implement.

There are no prerequisites to study the Dual Diplomas so it is possible to start the courses with limited experience, but it is advisable to have some working experience and even some experience in leading a team and/or managing a section of a business. By completing these qualifications, you’ll earn massive respect and recognition. You’ll become the go-to person when decisions need to be made.

You’ll build confidence in yourself. Our Mentors will be with you all the way through the courses, giving you feedback, steering you towards the right answers, and building you up. There is no pass or fail in the courses, and we stay with you until you can demonstrate the competence to act in a managerial role.

Many students do this course for the recognition. They already have years of experience and feel very comfortable managing a department but, without these qualifications, they may not attract a bigger salary or get that promotion. So, these Dual Diplomas prove that you are capable and that you deserve your rewards.

Other students are keen to start a business but don’t feel they have enough skills and knowledge. Through these courses, you will explore case studies of other businesses, learning from their mistakes and successes across a wide range of situations, and using this information to apply to your own dreams.

These Dual Diplomas will earn you respect, as you manage a team of people with grace and calm assurance. Your people will look to you as their leader, and they will draw on your knowledge and experience as their inspiration.

As this is a higher level, you will be challenged to study hard and earn your qualifications. Your expected answers to assessments should match the increased depth and breadth of the content.  This is a highly respected qualification - and having both of them on your resume will fill you with pride and prove that you have what it takes to lead and manage a business.

The Dual Diplomas of Business and Leadership & Management are higher-level courses, which means you’ll be at (or near) senior management. With some good experience, these qualifications will prove and complement your skills. In business, there are always people at the top who create, organise, lead and manage the processes. This could be you! Some of our graduates head down these paths;

  • Office Manager

  • Property Manager

  • Human Resources Manager

  • Marketing Manager


    Franchise Operator


    Customer Service Manager


    Business Owner

You’ll naturally get credit for what you do in this course. Upon completing the Dual Diplomas of Business and Leadership & Management, you can continue your studies through to a bachelor’s degree. The credits you earn in this course can mean it will be quicker and cheaper to complete higher qualifications. Some Universities will give automatic entry to those who have completed these Diplomas.


There is no start time and no scheduled classes to attend. So, you have the flexibility to get going when you’re ready and to study when you’re able.

The average dedicated student should expect to do 1 unit every 4 weeks. In the Dual Diplomas of Business and Leadership & Management, there is a minimum of 12 units to complete. So, you should expect around 12 months to complete. It’s OK to take longer, but there is a maximum time frame of 24 months.

There is no minimum time period, meaning if you have the time to apply yourself, you can complete this course as fast as want.

What you will study

In a Dual Diploma of Business & Leadership and Management, you’ll apply knowledge, practical skills, and experience in business, leadership, and management across a range of enterprise and industry contexts.

You must study 12 units to obtain your Diploma of Leadership and Management (BSB50420) and Diploma of Business (BSB50120). After completing all 12 units, you will have achieved both Diplomas.

What others have to say

I would like to express my gratitude for giving me the opportunity to receive my business certificate. Yours, Maddy's, Vickie's, and the team of Edmund Barton's College's cooperation and effort in preparing and delivering the course is truly appreciated. I couldn't have done it without you!

The online modules made the process very manageable and stress-free, as the learning was also very interactive given all the checkpoints. I am glad to have completed the course through Edmund Barton College as it was extremely convenient to my timings and I was able to complete it within a few months before school had started. Once again, thank you for your outstanding support!

The course was very educational and at the same time very fun. I loved (my Mentor) Michelle's comments. She made me feel very special (and smart!!). I enjoyed every moment of it!

I would like to say thank you to the team at Edmund Barton College, I know every time I have contacted the college the employees have been amazing with their customer service

Ashley G

Graduate - Certificate IV in Business Administration

"I have thoroughly enjoyed completely this Diploma, it was something that I thought was out of my reach. My Mentor’s kind words every step of the way has been encouraging and motivating. I certainly found the last two topics the hardest to get motivated to do, as life certainly got busier and procrastination kicked in. I have finished just in time for the festive season.”
