Here at University of Hertfordshire, they’ve designed a part-time Business and Organisational Strategy programme to help busy professionals develop their senior management skills.


If you’d like to build on your business or management experience, deepen your knowledge and open up new career possibilities, this degree is an exciting opportunity to fit postgraduate study around your existing work schedule.

When you graduate, you’ll not only achieve an MSc in Business and Organisational Strategy, but also a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Level 7 extended diploma in Management and Leadership. This highly respected diploma also gives you exemptions from some of the CMI’s additional qualifications, so if you’re aiming for Chartered Manager status, you’ll achieve it sooner.

The course develops your management skills in a whole range of areas, including:
  • personal development planning
  • strategic business planning
  • managing business strategy
  • resource management
  • project and risk management
  • financial management
  • strategic corporate social responsibility management
  • information management
  • managing organisational change
  • research skills for business and management

At the same time, our Master’s equips you to undertake in-depth research and communicate complex business ideas – excellent skills for advancing your career and your business.


This Business and Organisational Strategy programme course, offered by University of Hertfordshire, is all about developing your career and realising your potential. If you’re working for a large organisation, the skills you’ll learn will help pave the way for a move into senior management or leadership roles. If you’re the owner or manager of a small or medium sized organisation, you’ll build the planning and implementation skills you need to see it thrive and grow.

Our students find that the skills they develop on this course increase their confidence, giving them opportunities to take on increased management responsibility, engage in organisational planning and decision-making, create strategic change and explore promotion opportunities.
