The level 6 Diploma in Management is a 120 credit size qualification, equivalent in size and level to the third year of a bachelor’s degree.
In a time of ever increasing degree fees, the gap between those who are able to afford access to a university education and those who are not is widening. This Level 6 Diploma is part of a flexible suite of level 6 management qualifications that allow learners to work around their financial or lifestyle constraints to earn recognition for their achievement.
The core content of this qualification is for those entering a strategic level of management. With a key emphasis on making that progression from an undergraduate to a graduate mentality, including an understanding of the research skills and personal development expected of a senior manager.
For information on the suite of level 6 awards and certificates please refer to Level 6 Certificates & Awards in Management.
