Post Graduate Diploma in HRM

Awarded by Qualifi UK, OFQUAL Accredited Degree.

Programme overview

The Postgraduate Qualification awarded by Qualfi UK has been designed to meet the needs of senior/middle managers in the running of their businesses, and to facilitate their progression to high levels within their organisation. Managers need to be aware of issues, able to analyse their potential outcomes and consequences, and decide how to react. They do not have to be expert in all areas of business, but they need to possess a general awareness of what specialist facilities and services exist, and how they can assist in carrying out that role. The programme includes contemporary topics reflecting key issues within the 21st – century business environment as well as the latest developments in management research.

This 6-month PGD gives students 120 Credits of a UK University Masters Degree. Completing the Diploma allows access to a dissertation at one of our University partners for a related master’s degree.
