The Executive Diploma in Leadership and Management is a 120 credit size qualification (UK), equivalent in size to the first year of a UK Masters’s degree.

It is designed for students who want to gain a greater depth and understanding of the core functions of management and business administration. It is designed to develop the skills, knowledge and competencies of managers and future managers who conduct business locally and internationally.

The Executive Diploma in Leadership and Management builds on the Institute of Management SPecialists traditional strengths and prepares students to compete and succeed at the global level.
