Course Summary

How do you launch a management career? What’s the best way to build a team or grow a business? Our Postgraduate Certificate in Business and Management gives you the confidence to lead, supported by essential theories, skills and knowledge.

Getting a grip on business strategy is essential for management success. You’ll learn how to analyse the internal, external and international business environment. You’ll study key business theory and we’ll share methods to boost your skills in making decisions and setting objectives.

The best leaders are inspirational. We’ll help you develop strong personal leadership skills. We’ll show you how to manage projects, motivate teams, and make crucial decisions. You’ll also be able to add a module in people management or business operational management.

You’ll leave us with an impressive set of transferable management skills ready to kickstart a management career in your field or make the jump into a new area.


Fundamentals of the Business Environment takes a critical and evaluative review of the environmental scanning process. The business environment contains a complex pattern of factors and conditions that influence organisational behaviours. Organisations must not only respond to external environmental changes but must also be able to influence and determine their own business environment. This module provides you with a strong grounding in the external business environment, encouraging you to integrate theoretical perspectives with your own understanding and experiences of organisations.
