Moderation of NZ Diploma in Business prescriptions

This page contains national external moderation information for tertiary education organisations (TEOs) accredited to offer courses based on New Zealand Diploma in Business (NZDipBus) prescriptions.

Change to the moderation process for the New Zealand Diploma in Business from 2017

In January 2015, the New Zealand Diploma in Business (NZDipBus) (NZQF Ref: 9003) was replaced by new Business qualifications arising from the nationwide mandatory review of the Business qualifications.

New students must not be enrolled in NZDipBus version 3 after 31 December 2017.

Providers that continue to deliver this expiring qualification will be contacted individually by NZQA regarding delivery plans, moderation requirements and transition arrangements to the new Business qualifications.
