Accredited Programmes

MBA Lounge


We have a long experience of successfully delivering customised Certificate and Diploma programmes for our clients, several hundred participants having already completed these accredited programmes.

Working in partnership with you we can tailor the content of the programmes to suit the specific needs of your organisation and your people.  We provide compelling, focused and relevant content to enable participants to complete their studies one year, whilst still providing the fundamental knowledge of business and management required at this level.

Certificate in Management

The Certificate is typically based around five core modules, each of three days duration. Participants who complete the Certificate programme and who successfully submit a work-based project are eligible for the award of a Certificate in Management from Aston University.

A typical Certificate programme would include modules drawn from the following areas, subject to your requirements:

  • Finance for non-financial Managers
  • Strategic Management
  • Project Management
  • People Management
  • Operations and Risk Management
  • Marketing Management.

Diploma in Management

The Diploma is built from our triple-accredited MBA modules, each delivered over  four days and carrying full academic credit. It comprises four modules, equivalent to one third of the taught content of the Aston MBA.  The Diploma offers a more academic approach to the topics, and is very much focused on the latest research and the evidence base for decision making. The Diploma is assessed by coursework and examination, leading to the award of a Diploma in Management from Aston University.  Participants who successfully complete the Diploma to the required standard, are able – should they so choose - to transfer onto our MBA programme, with full academic credit carried over, and the programme price discounted to reflect modules already completed.

A typical Diploma programme would include modules drawn from the following areas, subject to your requirements:

  • Accounting for Business
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Marketing Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Strategic Management
  • Business Law for Consultancy and Construction.
