Final Year Modules

To achieve a complete MA in Business Management Degree, you need to accumulate 60 credits in addition to the 120 credits accumulated from our Level 7 Extended Diploma in Strategic 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.
