If you pass three MBA courses, you will be eligible for a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration. After six courses you gain a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration. Pass all nine and you will leave with the prestigious Master of Business Administration.
The same applies for the MSc courses. After three and six courses, you will be eligible for the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma respectively. Pass all nine and you will achieve the full MSc. Students on the DBA course can only graduate with the full DBA and must successfully complete all three stages and the thesis before doing so.
All degrees, certificates and diplomas are awarded by Heriot-Watt University.
