Course content

If you’re seeking a way to gain essential business skills and knowledge while keeping your future study options open, our short postgraduate certificate course in business and management is a great choice.

You will begin the course with a critical introduction to the main principles and practices of contemporary management and organisational behaviour. Our optional modules allow you to create a personalised course that caters to your interests and career aspirations, with areas of study including:

  • the key concepts that underlie marketing and how to develop a strategy
  • theories of leadership and how they apply in practice
  • human resource management and its distinction from personnel approaches
  • financial decision-making in the short and long term

Throughout your studies you will be collaborating with your fellow students and tutors through interactive discussion forums, live Q&A sessions and completing thoughtful and well-researched assignments. These will help you develop many of the key transferable skills that will take you far within the ever-changing business world.

After you complete your studies, you have the option to progress onto our postgraduate business pathways in management or finance.
