Overview

This new, innovative management development programme is aimed at existing or aspiring managers in any industry, business and/or public and voluntary sectors. It updates our popular Certificate in Management Studies Programme, which has run successfully at the College for over 30 years. This qualification is designed for middle managers and those aspiring to senior management who want to develop key skills such as managing resources, managing performance, recruitment and information management.

The modules focus on a range of key management areas, which together provide the essential tools to enable students to become effective managers. The participative and engaging class-based sessions provide a blend of theory and practical application, and allow learners to develop knowledge and skills that can be directly applied to their work.

If you're determined to reach the top rung of the career ladder then this course, coupled with membership of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), is a must. CMI state:

"By choosing to join CMI not only do you gain access to a wealth of management resources and support, our research shows positive impact on employability, earning potential and competence. Whether you're a member or studying member, you'll reap the rewards by aligning yourself with the only institute warranting the Royal Charter in management and leadership."
