What you will learn

The Professional Diploma in Management will be of particular interest to those aspiring to middle level managerial roles in large organisations and those who have a leadership role in smaller organisations.

The key to effective management and leadership lies in developing a critical understanding of your organisation and the practices of those who work in it, including your own. The professional diploma will help you meet this challenge, focusing on the management of teams, departments and projects.

To respond quickly and flexibly to rapidly changing markets and environments managers need a broad integrated picture of how their organisations work; they need to consider compromises, tensions and interdependencies between operational, accounting, marketing, information, financial and ‘people’ issues.

The study programme affords the opportunity to stand back from your current situation in order to concentrate on themes of understanding and improving performance, managing projects and change.

The emphasis is on your own professional development. Everything you study is related to the management roles and responsibilities you exercise. You can build on your experience and make direct links to your management development needs wherever you are in the world, whatever the size of your organisation and whether it is in the commercial or public sector.

The professional diploma is a recognised qualification in its own right but it is also Stage 1 of our MBA. Once you have gained the professional diploma you can go on to the second stage of the MBA.
