About this course

The Level 4 Business Management programme has been created to develop and reward the business managers of today and the future, and to continue to bring recognition and professionalism to the management sectors. This diploma provides an introduction to the main facets and operations of organisations and the challenges faced by modern day businesses. Furthermore, we look to create learning that advances the thought leadership of organisations, offering conceptual and practical insights that are applicable in the companies of today and tomorrow

The Level 5  Business Management programme deals with complex and challenging organisational issues and opportunities. The units are closely linked to current day real world and work challenges and the qualification will test and develop learners’ workplace experience and abilities. Learners will be required to make judgements and provide creative and practical solutions and ways of responding to organisational challenges and problems. The Level 5 units are also designed to dove-tail into a top-up undergraduate year at a UK University. The qualification is made up of six mandatory units.

This programme will give you a solid foundation in business and management theory, as well as the opportunity to develop the practical skills and analytical techniques used in different sectors. Graduate and you’ll be more than ready for the professional workplace and the challenges of the business world. During the course you’ll study and practise all the main areas of management, including human resources, marketing, accounting and finance, and information management. Modules on contemporary issues such as globalisation, sustainability and social and demographic change will put it all into context – as will content looking at commercial strategy and behaviour.
