How to become a Business Services Manager


SEEK Learning
While Business Services Managers are not required to hold formal qualifications, extensive work experience is an advantage and related qualifications may be looked on favourably.

  1. Start in a junior role in an administrative function and work your way up, gaining knowledge and experience on the job.
  2. Consider completing a degree in business or business administration. You’ll need to have completed year 12 to a satisfactory level or apply for flexible entry.
  3. If you already have a degree but in an unrelated field, consider a Master of Business Administration (MBA). Entry requirements vary, but generally you’ll need to have completed an undergraduate degree and have significant work experience.
