Postgraduate Diploma in Faith-based Leadership and Management (PGDipFBLM)

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.

The admission requirement is a degree or equivalent three-year qualification in any subject area with satisfactory grades. In cases where the student’s prior qualifications do not include theological study, he or she may be required to undertake one or more 300-level papers in Theology in order to satisfy the prerequisites for specific 400-level papers in BIBS and/or CHTH.

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.
