Developed in close consultation with the premier UK professional body for managers, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this course puts you on the fast track to success. It is one of the few where you’ll graduate with a highly regarded BA (Hons) Business Management (Marketing) degree as well as the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership. With these qualifications on your CV, you’ll signal to prospective employers that you’re suited for senior leadership roles and rapid promotion. The Diploma is the benchmark qualification for full CMI membership and takes you a step towards Chartered Manager status. There is no need to take extra exams or coursework to achieve the Diploma: our combined module and CMI assessments give you a smooth route to both qualifications.
To help you advance in a career with a financial focus, the course also features modules which offer exemptions from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) papers. This will give you a head start if you would like to qualify as a chartered management accountant eventually.
Flexibility is one of the most distinctive features of the Business Management suite of degrees. All students study the same modules in the first year to gain insights into the major business disciplines. After your first year, you can choose to follow the specialist pathway in Finance or – if you find your interests have changed – you can easily transfer to the core Business Management route or specialise in Marketing or Shipping.
This course comprises 20-credit modules, most of them being delivered on a semester basis, while a few are year-long modules. The highlight of the course is the final year 40-credit consultancy project with an employer, where you will harness your financial, research and project management skills to improve an organisation’s business performance. Modules of Year 1 are delivered and assessed in Greek; modules of Year 2 are delivered and assessed in Greek and English; modules of Year 3 are delivered and assessed in English. (Note: this course is also delivered entirely in English).
Without strong management control and effective co-ordination of financial resources, businesses frequently fail to realise their potential. This course gives you insights into the common pitfalls in performance management and how to avoid them. We equip you with specialist skills including financial analysis and projections so that you can assess the financial health of an organisation and deliver practical business solutions. You will also learn more about the value of corporate governance and how managers are responsible to wider stakeholders.
