Postgraduate Diploma in Management
The Postgraduate Diploma in Management of the North-West University is offered by the NWU Business School and is accredited by the Higher Education Quality Council (HEQC) (NQF 8) in South Africa.
The NWU is reckoned as one of the best managed universities in South Africa. The NWU Business School has been delivering competent graduates to Southern Africa who, in turn, are making a proven contribution to social and economic growth in the region. The NWU Business School aims to provide professional postgraduate management leaders. The faculty of the NWU Business School is therefore focused on combining theory and practice, in order to fully develop the strategic leadership potential of business managers. The programme content and standard of the NWU Business School Postgraduate Diploma in Management ensure that participants acquire skills with regard to best business practice and thought-leadership that can successfully be applied to the multi-disciplinary challenges encountered.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Management consists of 10 modules (5 in the first semester, and 5 in the second semester).
As the Postgraduate Diploma in Management does not have a research component in the course, the course cannot be called an honours degree, and for this reason, it is called a Postgraduate Diploma.
From 2016, the Postgraduate Diploma in Management will be presented on a full-time basis, as well as on a part-time basis.
