Course Summary

Whatever your background, this is your chance to find your place in the business world. Get the management theory, tools and techniques you need to become an innovative and future-focused leader on this PGDip Business and Management.

Examine the influences that affect business success, then uncover the impact of society, new technology, and a company’s inner workings. Use your new knowledge to make better business decisions and achieve your objectives.

You’ll work alongside experts in our Business School. We’ll teach you effective ways to manage people and operations. At the same time, you’ll develop advanced skills in research, business analysis and strategic planning. You’ll also pick an optional module in international finance, brand management, entrepreneurship or human resources.

You’ll leave us with an impressive set of transferable skills and an invaluable management toolkit to boost your employability across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.


Creating and Managing the Global Value Chain explores the frameworks and key thinking associated with operations and project management, particularly from a marketing perspective. The module is based upon the premise that, in order to be effective, organisations must design their processes to meet and exceed customer expectations. Adopting a marketing perspective, the module seeks to understand how the production of goods and services are influenced by the customer experience, and how failing to align operations with customer needs results in failure. You will explore the emerging complexity of managing operations that are capable of adding distinct value to the customer experience. Investigating why operations management is of strategic importance in designing and producing new goods and services, you will also consider project management frameworks as a critical tool in effectively managing the delivery of innovation.
