The Diploma in Business and Marketing Management – DBMM (SCQF Level 8) is a 16-unit accredited diploma, which runs over three terms and lasts for one academic year. This programme offers learners the knowledge and skills needed to develop an understanding of the models, tools and techniques used in the fields of Business and Marketing Management. The course has been mapped to the National Occupational Standards in Management and Leadership and Business Administration, and learners will be able to develop the competencies they need to enter work in one of these disciplines.
