Development of NZ Diploma in Business prescriptions

NZ Diploma in Business national prescriptions have been developed, reviewed and authorised by NZQA as the need has been identified.  

For a list of current national prescriptions see New Zealand Diploma in Business prescriptions.

Local prescriptions have been developed by individual TEOs (and approved by NZQA) for content not covered by national prescriptions, but for which there is local industry demand.

For information regarding any of the following approved local prescriptions, contact the National Qualifications Services (NQS) team.

E-Business and Supply Chain Management 5
Introduction to Project Management 5
Macroeconomics and the Global Economy 5
Organisational Behaviour 6
Public Relations Practices 6

Prescription development or review

As the qualification expires 31 December 2020, there will be no development of new national prescriptions, nor approvals given for any new local prescriptions.

National prescriptions are being revised and new versions published only where there has been feedback from stakeholders and the national external moderation process.

The five existing local prescriptions are re-approved for delivery until 31 December 2020.

Note: In some cases, legislation that affects a national prescription may be enacted before there is time to revise the prescription. Lecturers/tutors need to be aware of such changes, and any changes required by new legislation must be incorporated into their teaching programmes. NZQA external moderation decisions are based on legislation, standards, regulations and industry/business practice current and relevant to the subject at the time of course delivery.

TEOs can provide feedback on approved national prescriptions by sending a prescription feedback form (DOC, 857KB) at any time to NQS.
