About this Qualification

Important Notice: This qualification is expiring on the 30/04/2014, and no new registrations will be allowed after this date. Certification end date is 30/04/2017. 

The IQ IAM Level 6 Diploma in Business Management (QCF) is inspired by the MBA (Master in Business Administration) model and approaches learning in a practical, applied way.  It is for those who aim for high-level managerial roles in organisations.

It focuses on topics which are necessary for those who want to understand how organisations plan their activities at a strategic level and how they implement these plans in a way that contribute towards the smooth running of organisations and the maximisation of their competitive advantage.

This qualification is based on the IQ IAM’s definition of administrative management, namely that the administrative management function supports organisations in planning, organising, directing, and controlling their business activities across all functional areas.  Thus, administrative management and administrative managers have a key role in ensuring that businesses gain and maintain their competitive advantage.  The qualification explores how businesses design and operate internal structures and systems which support these goals.

The Diploma should, normally, take eighteen months to complete.  It contains units which enable candidates to develop their leadership and strategic management skills, whilst also exploring business management concepts across a range of functional areas within a business organisation.

In addition, candidates will complete a business research unit which draws upon the concepts and skills developed throughout the qualification.  This requires candidates to demonstrate a holistic approach to business, together with the analytical and evaluative skills necessary for those in management positions.
