Work based qualifications

Convert your CV to a Master’s degree with our flexible work-based qualifications

Are you a working professional with years of experience? Did you know that you can convert this business and management expertise into a Master's degree?

We can offer you an individually tailored, work-based, distance learning postgraduate level degree based on experience, insights and knowledge gained during your career.

How does it work?

This route is suitable for experienced working professionals and managers with over 5 years' experience in business or leadership roles.

After you complete our short application process, we’ll discuss your prior work experience and any professional qualifications you may have in an informal online interview. A personalised study pathway based on your individual experience is then constructed for you -  the content will be based around your area/s of expertise and interest.

Typically this may consist of the production of an evidence-based portfolio and a work-based learning project. Alternatively, you can study university online modules and gain credit for professional qualifications.

What degree will I be awarded?

The full title of the qualification is MSc Business and Management Studies.

The team at the University made it so easy for me to manage my time and coursework. I had many a time when I could not understand the full requirements of the course, and someone was always there on either Skype or the phone to encourage me and explain what was expected. I grew immensely as an individual during my course, and I felt supported throughout. I would recommend this route to a Master's degree to anyone, especially if they have busy lives and busy jobs. You feel part of the family very quickly, and someone is always on email or at the end of the phone. I am already considering the DBA route with the University of Hertfordshire. Thank you to the whole team.
