Qualifications required:

  • Applicants for the Certificate in Management should be in management roles with responsibility for a team of staff and/or for managing outcomes and functions. Typically students on this course will therefore have had several years in a management or supervisory role.
  • The students usually come from a range of sectors and sizes of organisations and this is a positive benefit in allowing learning and comparison of sometimes vastly different organisational practice.
  • A degree and two years as a manager or supervisor. Students who do not meet the standard entry requirements but are considered to have the potential to succeed on the course by way of professional experience will be required to complete a challenge assignment as evidence of their ability and interest.
