Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) The Diploma in Management Studies (DMS), is designed for those managers who want to develop and accredit their professional competence and knowledge base.

The usual route to the DMS is via the Postgraduate Certificate in Management or through the possession of an equivalent qualification such as the Chartered Management Institute's level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership, or a masters in another discipline.

On successful completion of the DMS students can proceed to MPA or MBA with accreditation of prior learning against four units. Students progressing on the Executive MPA will be eligible for a fee discount.

Modules

Management and leadership
Strategic human resource management
Enterprise and business planning
Projects and operations management

Residential weekend

A residential weekend takes place in Semester 2. It is essential for all DMS students and is focused on the development of management coaching skills.

Assessment

Modules are assessed by assignments, two per module. It is a requirement of the course to attend and contribute to the residential weekend.

As part of the ever evolving curriculum, all lecturers on the course strive to ensure that assignments are relevant and innovative, firmly linking them to the needs of you and your potential employers. As part of your studies, you'll take part in a weekend residential where you'll engage in various activities that have practical and theoretical use. As part of your learning you'll undertake an improvement project directly linked to your work. This project is guided by a lead management expert. These activities link across the entire curriculum.

Modules are assessed using two types of assessment: Formative and Summative;

Formative assessment is any process whereby we concern ourselves with the process of learning and academic progress in order to assist development and knowledge acquisition, but without conferring a formal mark.Throughout the course there are various formative mechanisms, including group-work activity, learning diaries, action learning sets and the day to day advice and support from tutors and colleagues.

Summative assessment refers to the formalised marking of work, through examinations and the assessment of assignments. Although it is ultimately the summative assessments which confer a result, we intend that the formative processes should enhance the prospects of that result, and its meaning. Present students tell us that this shared engagement with learning has added considerably to their knowledge and confidence.

Teaching and learning

You'll be supported throughout your studies and have access to lecturers for 1-2-1 meetings and guidance. There is an active use of LSBU's Virtual Learning Environment, where all lectures and seminar activities are made available, along with other support materials, such as articles and reference materials. You'll be able to discuss any concerns they have during lecture and seminar sessions and will be encouraged to seek assistance and further clarification on topics and/or assignments.

Employability

If you are not already working in a managerial role, upon completion of this course you'll have certainly increased your chances of securing such position. This course provides a broad understanding of the organisation and how it works with clearer insight into the diversity of cultures and preferences within a team. You'll also posses a greater ability to assist others in development and address performance problems with a clearer understanding of the needs of 'customers' and stakeholders.

Students have come from a vast variety of industries and both private and public sectors. These have included individuals from various managerial positions within the NHS, local government, private companies within the entertainment, finance and other industries

Academic progression

Students who successfully complete the programme become members of the professional body, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and often progress on to a masters degree such as the MPA or the MBA

Course detail

The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers, tutors and your fellow students.

The CMS is run over two terms, and the DMS over three terms, usually between 4.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week. The MA course runs over four terms, usually with entry points in September and May.

As the course focuses on core management skills and practice, it is relevant to both public and private enterprises, the profit and not for profit sectors and small to large organisations.

Additionally, prospective students who have an equivalent level qualification or who have substantial Senior Management experience may be eligible for entry to the MA via the process of Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). In either case, course members will normally be required to currently hold a management position.

Assessment

Courswork, including written reports, assignments, presentations and case studies. Additionally, for the MA, a Management Research Report is required of 11,000-15,000 words. This typically takes six months to complete.
