    Course Summary

    A PgCert is a Post-graduate Certification, a master’s level qualification which falls just short of a full MA or MBA degree by omitting the final Project or Dissertation requirement. In this case, it represents learning the skills you’ll need to manage (and more importantly lead) in a modern business context. You’ll come to understand the way today’s businesses operate and learn the best and most effective techniques for leading personnel and stakeholders to overcome business challenges and to take best advantage of opportunities.

    Buckinghamshire New University offers this certification in order to help identify those students with the skills, ambition and practical experience necessary to become tomorrow’s decision makers. They will know how to face an uncertain economic and geopolitical landscape and forge a way forward for their organisation. They will learn the best approaches toward business management, and understand why failed strategies did not achieve success.

    On graduation, it is possible to transition to the school’s International MBA.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This program is typically delivered over 9 months at full time.  In those two semesters you’ll learn the background knowledge, practical skills and effective strategies they’ll need to lead in nearly any commercial, industrial or public sector context.

    It will be delivered in a flexible manner, allowing you to continue working as you attend classes.

     

    The modules below will be taught with the assumption that you already have a solid basis of the facts, theory and history of the business world. The university has close working relationships with some of the largest commercial and industrial organisations in London, and works to leverage these for its students. Some of the benefits of these close relationships include the opportunity to attend guest lectures by industry leaders and to pursue project work based on live briefs submitted by university partners.

    Core Modules Include:

    • Marketing Strategy in an “Always-on” World
    • Leading, Managing and Developing Talent
    • Strategic Leadership
    • Project Management

    Learning & Teaching

    At the Master’s level, Buckinghamshire New University uses particular teaching and assessment methods to ensure that its students gain all that they can from the program. The first 4 weeks will consist of an extensive online induction program. After that, you’ll study 4 15-credit taught modules in total. As you learn you’ll pay special attention to the concept of Continuing Professional Development, making extensive use of the university’s full featured professional learning environment.

    Career Possiblities

    Buckinghamshire New University’s Business Leadership PgCert degree qualifies you for a wide range of exciting leadership roles in both domestic and international organisations of all kinds. However, many Bucks Business School graduates opt to go into business for themselves. If that is the case you’ll be able to continue on to Bucks’ International MBA and then have access to the school’s ‘Launch Pad’ incubator program which provide office space and meeting rooms. You’ll have the full support of the Careers and Employability Service no matter what you choose, as well.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a Post-graduate Certification.

    Students must typically have been awarded an undergraduate degree. A full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall would qualify, for example.
