Flexible Managed Programme (Business School)

Edinburgh Napier University


Craiglockhart Campus


With a flexibly managed programme you can build your own individual study path within certain parameters to achieve an award at Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Master’s Degree level.

Alternatively, you could choose to study one or two modules for your own personal or professional development. You decide how far to go and can pace your studies to suit your other commitments.

Focusing on your background, aspirations and career goals, you’ll choose modules from a wide range of business-related subjects to suit your personal or development needs with the help of an academic adviser.

You’ll develop transferable skills such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation which you'll apply to the business areas and management disciplines of your choice.

Development of research abilities is also emphasised and you’ll learn techniques and strategies that will enable you to critically reflect on your workplace experiences and create your own on-going programme of professional development.

You can exit with a PgDip or PgCert.
