About this Programme:
The Level 5 Award in SME Management is a 90 ECTS credits programme. This programme includes different business based modules, business simulation internship and a research project. This course is aimed to equip owner/senior managers, junior managers and executives, with the necessary management skills, tools and techniques to advance their own personal performance as managers. It will enable them to more reliably inform and guide the development of their SME.
The rationale of this course is that of translating theoretical knowledge to practical work situations so that at the end of the course the students will be able to participate in SME projects. The theory detail will be that of providing a background which upon completion of the course, both students and practitioners, can then decide whether to continue with their studies in SME Management at a higher level.
The course will provide tools and the necessary knowledge and the skill in applying SME management practices which would help grow and support a business. This course will also be offered to students across faculty or professionals in different sectors such as Engineering, ICT, Finance, etc. The online Award is spread over a period of 18 months part-time, whilst the blended learning programme is spread over the period of 12 months full-time, with students following this programme through blended learning with on-site tutoring in Malta.
