About this Qualification

Important Notice; This qualification is being expired on the  30/4/15, certification end date is 30/4/17.

The IQ IAM Level 6 Extended Diploma in Business Management 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 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 Extended Diploma should, normally take three years to complete.  The units become gradually more difficult as candidates progress through the qualification.

Candidates will develop a holistic approach to business together with the analytical and evaluative skills necessary for those in management positions.  They will also become familiar with the theory which underpins research and with research methods and techniques.

This qualification leads to further studies in management at level 7 and to masters’ level study at higher education.
