The aim of the Postgraduate Diploma in Faith-Based Leadership and Management (PGDipFBLM) is to enhance leadership and management in faith-based organisations, through the incorporation of current scholarship in both Theology and Business Administration. The PGDipFBLM is designed to enhance a graduate's leadership and management of faith-based organisations and to enable advanced reflection and research on the practice of leadership and management.
All the Theology papers offered for this qualification will be taught by distance; with a few papers taught both on campus and by distance in the same semester. The MBA papers are taught both on campus and by distance.
Duration of the Programme
The programme shall normally be completed on a part-time basis and requires the equivalent of one year of full-time study.
The admission requirement is a degree or equivalent three-year qualification in any subject area with satisfactory grades.
