What you'll learn

The Level 7 Diploma is as an MBA advanced entry course, giving learners 120 of the 180 credits needed to bag a complete MBA. After you graduate, you'll be a dissertation away from a full MBA from a British University of your choice. Each module comes with optional materials like recommended exercises, readings, online resources, and self-testing exercises. And guess what? You’ll have access to 24/7 support, tutoring, and a range of other support options.

This course goes beyond the basics into the core of Strategic Management and Leadership. You'll learn how to put together strong teams and make smart strategic decisions. By understanding how different parts of an organisation mesh together, you'll be on track to be a solid management professional, ready to tackle challenges anywhere.

The Level 7 Diploma doesn't just stick to textbooks - it brings in real managerial situations, actionable case studies, and practical exercises. This hands-on learning approach ensures you get a good grip on practical management skills, ready to face managerial challenges wherever they pop up.

With this course, you also gain membership to the Institute of Directors (IOD), opening up a world of networking and learning from seasoned directors.

Finishing this diploma course, you'll have a wide understanding of many managerial topics, from planning strategies to guiding organisational changes. You’ll also see how management theories play out in real life, helping you step into leadership roles and make a positive impact on your organisation.
