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.


-Parts 1 and 2: CMS/DMS-

The whole DMS course consists of six taught modules in total with students taking two modules per term. The Certificate comprises three modules.

The modules build a general framework related to the core management disciplines and the strategic role of management applied to daily management activity.

When you obtain a pass on the existing Diploma in Management Studies you'll be eligible to proceed to the Masters in Management Studies. 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.


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.

What can I do next?

Many successful candidates from this course benefit from using their new found qualification and confidence to progress their careers with their current employer, or to use it to secure promotions or new employment elsewhere.
