The aims of this qualification are to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in a progressive range of subject areas from Level 4 through to Level 5, offering learners an integrated pathway of learning through skills pertinent to junior management roles in business and management to those more relevant to middle management roles and progressing in higher education.
The Level 5 Combined Extended Diploma in Business and Management (240-credit) Incorporates the requirement of the Level 4 Extended Diploma in Business and Management (120-credit) and offers learners the opportunity to add another 120-credits at Level 5 to their learning. It is designed to offer learners a comprehensive and integrated development of their learning, including undertaking a potentially synoptic, mandatory research project (Unit 4).
