This Top-Up Master's  Degree course is designed to boost your career prospects by studying for a professional studies Master's degree alongside your current work.

Whether you're currently in a career which covers a breadth of subjects or you want to develop a range of transferable skills for your future career aspirations, our MA/MSc in Professional Studies course, wherein a majority of your learning will be art-based (for MA) and science-based (for MSc) can help you fulfil your professional and personal development ambitions.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don't have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position or you have high-level skills through experience that isn't reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer's objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.

You'll get to put the skills you learn to work instantly in your job, contributing to the success of your company. When you complete the course, you'll improve your career prospects and have the skills and knowledge to perform more effectively in your job.

Accredited by Chartered Management Institute (CMI)

LIBT Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership and Management is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), which means you can apply for Chartered Manager through Fast-track status on completion of your studies. The students will also receive a CMI Level 7 Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership Practise.

Course Content

To achieve a complete MA / MSc in Professional Studies Degree, you need to accumulate 60 credits in addition to the 120 credits accumulated from our Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership and Management, which can also include in-service training courses and qualifications as well as learning from on-the-job experience.

You can accumulate these additional 60 credits in two ways:

Work-based learning (WBL) projects

Most of your learning will come from work-based learning (WBL) projects. These are projects that are valuable to your employer, which you complete at work.

These WBL projects won’t involve activities you do in your day-to-day job as they need to involve new learning for you. You’ll do most of the work for these projects in your normal working hours.


Taught modules

You can study distance learning modules to expand your knowledge and understanding or to develop new skills in a more structured way.

Modules that previous students have studied include Strategic Organisational Excellence, Leadership Skills and Management, Resourcing, Learning, and Talent.

We use the best and most current research and professional practice alongside feedback from our students to make sure course content is relevant to your future career or further studies.

Therefore, some course content may change over time to reflect changes in the discipline or industry.
