The Graduate Diploma in Accounting allows you to add a specialisation in accounting with an elective option in project management, strategic management and more to further your career.
You will use your existing graduate skills or extensive experience to start your business study at the equivalent level to the final year of a business degree.
The Graduate Diploma in Accounting is a great option if you are seeking promotion in your existing employment, wish to widen your skills and knowledge base and keep ahead in the knowledge game or if you are considering a career change, including self-employment.
Your studies will see you process and evaluate a full set of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting practices in New Zealand. On completion, you will demonstrate a technical, analytical and conceptual understanding of the role of accounting in the business environment.
The Nelson Technical School (the forerunner of NMIT) was set up in 1904 and the building was designed by Stead Ellis, a trained architect and secretary to the Nelson Education Board. The doors opened in 1905, initially offering classes in cookery, engineering, woodwork, commerce, craft, secretarial and plumbing.
The land that the building sits on was donated by Nelson City Council and construction was led by John Scott Jnr at a cost of £1124. In 1930, the Technical School was merged with Nelson College with many part-time hobby classes and a few vocational courses being offered. Nelson Polytechnic officially became a technical institute in 1971.
