Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Planning
The Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Planning allows you to combine three core courses to achieve a stand-alone business award at postgraduate level. It is an ideal benchmark to assess your suitability for the MSc in Strategic Planning and it allows you to enter the programme without a first degree.
The three courses at certificate level will count towards your diploma (six courses) or your MSc (nine courses) if you continue your studies.
Only a few courses are available in languages other than English: see the Language options section.
You must complete Strategic Planning plus two other core courses.
