There is a growing recognition that in addition to a common body of knowledge all managers need in order to succeed, there are critical specialist areas for managers which provide a sound understanding of all aspects of their work and a springboard for further career progression.
This is an advanced course aimed at experienced finance managers working in an organisation's finance department or those who act as financial advisors to charities and not-for-profit organisations.
This Charity degree course aims to equip students with a knowledge of:
• Specialist charity taxation and unique tax privileges • The distinctive financial accounting practice and management.
Students should be highly motivated managers and will normally have a good first degree, a related professional qualification or at least three years wholly relevant experience.
The Postgraduate Diploma is offered on a part time basis and is taught over a period of 12 months. The Diploma consists of four core modules, common to all Centre for Charity Effectiveness postgraduate courses. These modules provide the essential underpinning of management skills. You also study three specialist pathway modules.
Upon successful completion of the diploma, you will be given the option to continue to the MSc. This requires completion of the Research Methods for Managers module.
This can be followed by a further six months of personal, supervised research and the presentation of a 15,000-word dissertation.
Alternatively, you can opt to take a taught Masters which allows you to choose specialist modules from one of the other Charities programmes.
