This qualification is inspired and based upon the Masters in Business Administration which is a world renowned higher education qualification which encompasses all the core competencies required of a senior business manager.
On the QCF at level 7 which is equivalent to MBA level, the ATHE Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management is recognised by a variety of UK universities as equivalent to their own MBA content. (Please see, Management progression routes for more information.)
