OTHM International Higher Diploma in Commerce (Level 5)

Program Description

The world of business and management is going through rapid and profound changes; therefore new theories need to be created and novel strategies, as well as practices, needs to be implemented. Institutional leaders, policy makers, and administrators are confronted with novel situations in their respected professional field and indeed this has precipitated the need for new knowledge to be quickly translated into practice, which can be achieved with the help of advanced research activity.

The objective of this programme is to provide learners with an excellent foundation for a career in a range of organisations. It is designed to ensure that each learner is 'business ready': a confident, independent thinker with a detailed knowledge of business and management, and equipped with the skills to adapt rapidly to change. 

The content of the qualification is focused on people management, managing projects, marketing, finance for managers, business law, business ethics and social responsibility. Successful completion of this programme will provide learners with the opportunity to progress to further study or employment.
