Course content

This suite of courses has been recognised by the The Chartered Management Institute, the UK's only chartered body that awards management and leadership qualifications.

This flexible course is a part-time Masters level course for those who wish to enhance their effectiveness and confidence in the workplace.

It provides a rounded introduction to the principles of management and is designed to have immediate relevance and application in your current role whilst also providing potential for future progression in both study and career.

The course allows you to achieve a Masters level qualification in three stages, or leave and re-join after the Certificate or Diploma stages. Once you have the Diploma, all you need to achieve the MA is to complete the module in Research Skills and a management research report.

The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers, tutors and your fellow students.

The CMS is run over two terms, and the DMS over three terms, usually between 4.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week. The MA course runs over four terms, usually with entry points in September and May.

As the course focuses on core management skills and practice, it is relevant to both public and private enterprises, the profit and not for profit sectors and small to large organisations.
