Gain a qualification and chartered manager status with our Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship. Study for an honours degree in management while you work, with no tuition fees.
I have been given the opportunity to gain a degree while moving into the world of work. The course is interesting, and is easy to relate to the everyday work that I do within my company. Already, I am seeing a difference in my approach to different tasks at work, using theory from the course to support my decisions and actions.
Our new Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) offers you a comprehensive course that balances business education with organisational needs and aspirations in any sector. It's an exciting personal development route for existing and aspiring managers seeking formal management qualifications, enabling you to continue to earn while learning and improve your management and leadership skills within the workplace.
With the full range of business skills, including managing people, marketing, finance, planning and strategy, leadership and sustainability, you will learn how companies operate and compete - and how, by applying these management skills, you can help them achieve their strategic ambitions. Study while you work on our blended learning degree apprenticeship course, and take your career to the next level.
Our BA (Hons) degree is ‘dual accredited’ by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), meaning that it has already been aligned and mapped to the CMI qualification. This lets you gain an additional qualification as part of your academic studies, and access to the exemption (streamlined) route to Chartered Manager. A CMDA takes four years to complete and offers you the additional benefits of CMI Affiliate Member status from the start of your course.
20% of your learning will be classed as ‘off the job’, which means that you'll be learning during normal working hours either in your place of work or outside – but not part of your normal working duties.
You will also attend six workshops per year that will cover study skills and module content.
As well as learning while you earn, the benefits of studying this course include:
