Course content

This short course aims to provide suitable learning and development opportunities for students who wish to enhance their existing degree-level knowledge and understanding in a business or management area. The Advanced Diploma is a stand-alone qualification, and therefore it does not transform your existing qualifications, but it will enable you to develop your business knowledge base and strengthen your academic skills in research, critical analysis and written expression in business studies. As such it will be especially suitable for those wishing to subsequently enter a Master's programme in a business subject, for example, on successful completion of this course you will be able to commence the MA International Business Management starting in January or choose from a suite of Business and Management programmes starting in October.
