Sales Management

Overview
The Higher Diploma in Business in Sales Management is a part-time one-year Level 8 degree 60 credit programme aimed at those working in or aspiring to sales management roles that have a foundation of experience in a sales environment.

Using innovative delivery teaching approaches the programme is a flexible undertaking for those with busy lifestyles. Incorporating online delivery that is supported by traditional residential classroom delivery, participants will have the opportunity to mix with their peers while also developing their knowledge in their own time. An innovative industry based Applied Project is undertaken which adds real value to the practitioner and their work environment while a flexible Seminar Series provides substantial networking exposure.

The programme has a constant practical real-world focus and lecturers will have extensive experience in a sales environment.

Aim
This programme serves two purposes; to enhance the critical thinking abilities, understanding of business and personal development avenues for the candidate, and also contributing value to the organisation of the participant through an injection of new ideas and more strategic thinking. The programme is focused on facilitating the development of the individual and the organisation.
