Comments about Graduate Certificate Business - At the institution - London - Greater London
London Metropolitan University offers a pre-Masters programme for international students who need to do a bridging course before starting a business-related Masters course. The pre-Masters programme is a one-semester course that starts in September, February and June, and prepares you for study on a wide range of business-related Masters courses. You can choose to study only the pre-Masters course, or you can choose to do the pre-Masters in conjunction with either 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months of pre-course English. The course is based around the study of international business and the development of research skills. It includes economics, business strategy, research methods, case study approaches and a comprehensive introduction to the skills needed for successful postgraduate study. You can also do an Academic English course as part of the programme. Classes are small, with a focus on language improvement and the development of independent academic study skills.
You need to have either: -a bachelors degree from overseas in any subject; or -a diploma from an overseas university in a business-related subject; or -a diploma from an overseas university in any subject, plus some relevant professional or work experience Those applying for the pre-Masters who wish to proceed onto the MBA are required to have at least two years of full-time, post-graduation experience within an administrative, business or management environment. Those who intend to progress to a Masters course at the University subsequently should indicate on their initial application form the title of the course they wish to progress to, so that the University can make a linked progression offer, if appropriate.
