Course Description

The EduQual Diploma in Business Management (SCQF Level 11) is equivalent to an RQF Level 7 Diploma with 120 credits. It is designed to meet the needs of senior/middle managers in the running of their businesses, and to facilitate their progression to higher levels within their organisation. Managers need to be aware of issues, able to analyse their potential outcomes and consequences, and decide how to react. They do not have to be expert in all areas of business but they need to possess a general awareness of what specialist facilities and services exist, and how they can assist in carrying out that role.

The programme includes contemporary topics reflecting key issues within the 21st century business environment, as well as the latest developments in management research. The programme has been produced to conform to the requirements of the RQF, the SCQF, the National Occupational Standards for Management and Leadership (NOS) and the relevant Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) subject benchmark statements.

The aims of this programme will allow learners to:

  • Apply theoretical understanding of business and management to complex and current business issues and the impact of the external environment, with a view to improving business practice
  • Critically reflect upon own leadership and management skills and thereby allow learners to prepare for senior roles within their organisation
  • Develop a lifelong learning attitude to education and training
  • Gain a critical insight into contemporary research and leading-edge practice within the field of strategic management
  • Develop considerable autonomy in their learning and enhance their ability to plan, implement and evaluate consultancy projects in a group context
  • Demonstrate originality and enterprise in approaching complex business issues
  • Demonstrate self-direction, initiative and autonomy in research and scholarship towards solutions to organisational problems in a chosen field of management
  • Critically evaluate proposed solutions to business problems.
