More about this course

The world of credit management is an extremely dynamic environment demanding ever-changing skills and knowledge base in areas such as trade, commerce and export credit, as well as related areas such as collections, credit reporting, credit insurance and insolvency practice.

The CICM course is designed for anyone wishing to move into or progress in a credit role. The Level 3 diploma course aims to provide a sound understanding of the concepts, processes and techniques that underpin best practice across a range of credit environments.

What our students say

“The classes are quite small and allow for group discussion, and the quality of the teaching is first class. I have found the accounting module very comprehensive in particular, and because of the quality of the teaching I have decided to study further in this area.”

After the course

This valuable professional qualification will enhance the career prospects of anyone wishing to move into or forward in a credit role.

It also provides a springboard to further study, such as a Diploma in Management Studies or an MBA.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

On the MSc International Management (Human Resource Management) course you will develop an understanding of a range of global businesses, their operations, and the cultural differences you will meet in the practice of international management. You will study the various business functions, such as marketing, finance and strategy, taking into account global environmental factors (economic, political and social) in which international organisations operate. You will also develop a specialism in key areas of Human Resource Management; the business function which many would argue is the most important in the sense that it delivers to the organisation the human resource without which nothing would be achieved.

One of the big differences on this course is the focus on acquiring the skills you will need to work in international organisations. You will learn about a range of international organisations and develop your general management skills and intercultural management skills. You will develop your specific Human Resources Management skills in this same international context. You will gain practical experience by working on a live consultancy project for a commercial or not-for-profit organisation and have the opportunity to take part in field trips to study organisations in other countries.

With this master's degree, graduates go on to successful international careers with a range of commercial and not-for-profit organisations around the world.

Effective project management skills are in great demand in an increasingly complex global organisational environment. This MSc in Project Management aims to provide graduates with a broad range of specialist technical (hard) and interpersonal (soft) skills that will equip them to develop successful careers in this demanding and rapidly expanding field.

A strong theme of project and programme complexity will weave throughout the course and will provide a framework to explore fundamental and contemporary theory relating to leadership, cultural diversity, operational management, strategy, systems and complexity itself. This coupled with an in depth exposure to cutting edge practice across a range of sectors will enable graduates to deliver successful projects in an increasingly uncertain and complex global organisational context.

The structure of the course reflects the need for graduates to be adaptive practitioners by removing the barriers between technical and interpersonal skills and focusing on equipping them with the tools to recognise and understand the need to adapt practice, both in terms of leadership and management, to different contexts and demands. To this end the course structure will span leadership, management & strategy, risk management, contract negotiation, project finance, current issues, tools & techniques and law.

These programmes provide a coherent theoretical framework for the various subject areas, but the emphasis throughout is on advanced practical application of business management and financial techniques in a real-world setting.
