Blended Courses

These courses are popular for many reasons. They are flexible, so you can fit them around your work or family life. This is helped by the fact that many are entirely online, or involve blended learning, where you get the benefits of studying on campus, and online. 

Some of the courses allow you to study without qualifications. This opens up new opportunities to a vast number of people who thought that would never be able to go to university. 

Each programme of study significantly improves your chances of gaining employment, as there is great demand by employers for people who are qualified in the areas they cover.

Course overview: Your course begins by helping you develop broad knowledge in key areas of business management, including managing people and an introduction to how modern organisations function.

 In your second and third study levels you’ll explore subjects covering the development of high performance teams, talent management, rewarding performance, people analytics, and other key areas that you’ll find indispensable in the workplace. 

This degree has dual accreditation from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). Not only will you graduate with a recognised degree, but you’ll also receive a CMI Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership and an ILM Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management.
