The Level 6 Diploma in Business Strategy and Management (L6BSM) is the third year of the NCC Education pathway. The qualification is equivalent to the final year of a Business degree qualification in the UK university system.
This qualification exposes students to advanced topics in a range of areas including business strategy, marketing, decision-making and management. A balance of academic and vocational subjects equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills required to play a significant role in a business organisation and /or to progress on to further study.
For entry onto the NCC Education L6DBSM qualification students must have at least one of the following:
- NCC Education Level 5 Diploma in Business (L5DB).
- A local or international qualification which is deemed to be of a similar level to the NCC Education L5DB qualification. This must be agreed with NCC Education in advance.
If a potential student whose first language is not English, they will need to obtain a valid score of 5.5 or above in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination or equivalent. Alternatively, take the free NCC Education English Placement Test, which is administered by our Accredited Partner Centres.
Students are required to complete the six following units:
- Business Research Methodology – provides an understanding of business research, including how it is conducted, its importance for business students when conducting academic business research and also for business research within an organisation.
- Business Strategy – examines the role that strategic management plays within organisations and its effects upon organisational performance and survival.

The approach adopted in this module encourages students to question and evaluate different perspectives of strategic management.

This module compares and contrasts export, international and multinational marketing. Upon completion, students will be able to precisely differentiate between the marketing policies appropriate to industrialised, developing and underdeveloped economies.

This module will extend students’ practice in qualitative and quantitative analysis in business in order to develop critical diagnosis and decision-making skills.

The module covers the analysis of effective management in organisations with emphasis on the functions of management and the behavioural processes of change, conflict, leadership, motivation, communication, innovation and group dynamics.
