2 Welcome Manchester Met Business School, part of the Faculty of Business and Law, is one of the largest Business Schools in the UK.

Our education provision also includes degree apprenticeships, undergraduate degrees and bespoke commercial training for a range of corporate clients. We share links with over 25 industry body associations, with the majority of our Masters programmes carrying dual accreditation, allowing you to gain additional awards or exemptions from professional qualifications.

About the course Designed to build on the practical knowledge and skills you have developed through your experience of management, this dual award course is ideal for managers wishing to demonstrate that they not only understand theory, but how it can be put into practice.

3 The course in detail This is a Pre-Masters, dual award development course that invests in managers and leaders. The course leads to enhanced productivity, improved business performance and enriched professional development. Providing both an academic and professional award for those who have significant work experience but no formal university business qualifications, the Pre- Masters Certificate in Professional Studies is not only a pathway onto Manchester Met s extensive Masters and MBA programmes, but also a formal recognition for personal and professional development in the workplace. Underpinned with the latest techniques and skills that are appropriate to effective management, leadership and project management practices, this course is designed to build on the practical knowledge and skills you have developed through your experience of management. There are two core units of study which relate directly to two assignments: Personal Development as a Leader and Project Manager In this unit, you will explore the different ways that people learn and you will identify techniques that will help you become a more effective learner. You will also explore the role of the leader and the nature of leadership, evaluating your own approach to leadership and consider the implications of this for future practice. The concept of leadership will be considered and these theories and techniques will allow you to assess your own leadership in terms of your achievements of team and organisational goals. You will also reflect on how you lead people to develop appropriate responses to differing situations and how you extend their capacity, individual skills and competencies so that you manage projects effectively. The Business/ Organisational Improvement Project This unit looks at the different ways an organisation can be structured and operated for optimal productivity, applying the principles of effective research, marketing and analysis to determine customer expectation and needs. You will identify your organisation s values and objectives and relate to how these affect your own planning and contribute to internal development. You will look at marketing as a management process, exploring how you identify and predict the needs of current and future stakeholders and learn how to write a marketing plan. Organisations quality assurance and quality management practices are explored and you will analyse complex organisational situations, presenting appropriate solutions to these issues. You will also learn about financial management and information systems within business, analysing and interpreting financial statements, sourcing, presenting and utilising financial data for strategic and operational planning. You will also undertake a cost benefit analysis to contribute to your business/operational improvement project. Assessment A continuous learning log and a range of work-based projects make up the assessment of this course. Supporting a developmental learning approach whereby you are encouraged to: n take your learning into the workplace to benefit your individual learning and organisation n apply and test new learning techniques n reflect upon the outcomes of your learning to make further improvements n add value to your organisation by identifying an organisational/business improvement project Time commitment Part-time delivery The course is structured as whole day teaching, usually a weekday (currently Wednesdays) in six week blocks. There are 13 days of face-to-face teaching in total over a 6 month period. The course begins with an induction lasting one day, followed by one day per week of teaching for six consecutive weeks, which leads up to the first assignment. You will then have six further weeks to complete your first assignment, before returning to taught lessons of one day per week for another six consecutive weeks. You will then have another six weeks off to complete your second assignment before completion of the Certificate. On completion, you then have the opportunity to join a postgraduate Masters or MBA programme. Entry requirements There are no formal entry requirements for this course. Candidates should have extensive work place experience and at least 2-3 years in a managerial, supervisory, team leader or a deputising role. Start dates There are two annual intakes for this course, January and October. Induction takes place usually around the middle of these months. Teaching expertise This course is delivered by a team of senior academics from the Business School who have extensive industrial and commercial experience.

Professional development We have also designed a postgraduate level pathway for professionals whose interests and requirements span a number of different business-related disciplines.

Explaining MSc/PgDip/PgCert Many of our Master s (MSc) programmes can be studied as a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) or Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip).

If you successfully complete half of the taught units (60 credits), you are awarded a PgCert. If you successfully complete all of the taught units (120 credits), you are awarded a PgDip. If you complete the taught units (120 credits) successfully you can then write a dissertation or research project (another 60 credits) and are awarded an MSc.

From a business/ organisational improvement n One assignment involves the development of a Business/ Organisational Improvement Project - this project will be based on your own current organisation where possible, and will be supported by senior academics and practitioners at the University. n The assignment will apply the leadership, project management, financial analysis and operational management knowledge gathered both on the course and in the workplace for the benefit of both the individual and the organisation. From an organisational n The business/organisational improvement project identifies and analyses a part of the organisation, which would benefit from a project improvement programme.

This plan will relate to the scope, depth, academic rigour and demonstrate benefit to the organisation.
