Diploma in Business Administration


In comparison to a business management course, a business administration course will equip learners with more technical skills in running the daily operations of a business. It is a more specialized course as it explores the basics of managing an organization’s resources, time and people.


The ‘Diploma in Business Administration’, from DSH Institute of Technology, equips students with a comprehensive understanding of accounting, marketing, finances, human resources, and information technology, enabling learners to choose their specialization later on. The program consists of a combination of classroom activities as well as industrial placements in hotels, corporate offices, hospitals etc where students will gain first hand experience through learning from other business professionals.


At the end of our ‘Diploma in Business Administration’, at DSH Institute of Technology, students will be able to :

  1. gain comprehensive knowledge on the main domains involved in running a successful business such as accounting, marketing, finances, human resources and information technology
  2. be equipped with hands – on experiences, through industrial placements and learn the basics of business through observing other professionals such as marketing
    executives, human resource managers, accountants, graphic designers etc
