The EduQual Diploma in Business Management (SCQF Level 11) is a Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) equivalent Level 7 qualification.

Assessment Methods

The EduQual Diploma in Business Management (SCQF Level 11) is designed for learners who have gained a considerable degree of subject knowledge and proficiency from undergraduate studies, experience within the workplace, or both. The approach to study is essentially one of critique and evaluation: using the results of current and recent research and case studies to analyse, evaluate and appraise established methods, practices or techniques.

Teaching input is provided via a wide range of approaches including lectures and seminars (online and or face to face), video and case studies. Particular emphasis is placed on team approaches and the setting of work-based tasks at a strategic level.

Learning strategies include syndicate work, group presentations, working with local business organisations, and self-managed learning.

Assessments have a strong practical and professional orientation and enable learners to develop a range of practical management skills relevant to senior roles in their organisation. Work-based assignments are used where relevant and practical in order to help participants:

  • Relate their learning to their work environment
  • Increase their knowledge of that environment
  • Raise their profile and ensure that their sponsor gains immediate practical benefit
  • Access increased employability/progression opportunities.
