Program description

Management Education PGCert

If you’re already able to inspire others while leading a department or division, our PGCert in Management Education could help you transition into the captivating world of teaching.

On this course, you’ll learn through Surrey Business School’s Centre for Management Education, a pioneering hub of research in the theory and practice of management education.

You’ll receive relevant and industry-informed teaching, preparing you for a successful career in educating the next generation of management talent.

Created to give professional managers a route into teaching, this PGCert is the first postgraduate course of its kind in the UK to offer a credit-bearing qualification.

Taught by distance learning, this course will teach you how to use your hard-earned knowledge and experience to motivate others within a teaching environment.

Over the course of six months, you’ll gain the necessary skills and know-how to inspire the next generation of managers. On graduation, you’ll have the understanding and confidence required to teach in higher education or as an independent management education consultant.

Convenient, accessible and in-depth, your studies will involve a combination of our virtual learning environment, personal advisers and a three-day summer school to conclude the course.
