The Graduate Diploma in Business Administration (GDBA) provides foundational knowledge and skills needed to be successful in TRU’s Master of Business Administration, Master of Environmental Economics and Management, or Master of Science in Environmental Economics and Management.

The GDBA may also be of interest as a stand-alone program to those students who just want an overview of business management. Professionals in fields such as medicine and dentistry, for example, can study management at the graduate level to better operate their businesses or practices.

The TRU GDBA is one of the most flexible programs of its kind in Canada. Customize your studies to your learning style, your work demands and your personal commitments.

  • Complete in as little as eight months

  • On campus, online or a combination
