The IAM Level 4 Diploma in Business and Administrative Management supports those already working in, or aspiring to work in, business management positions. Holders of the qualification will also be eligible for progression to various UK university degree programmes.

A combination of mandatory and optional units offers learners the fl exibility to study those units that are of interest to them. The course can be studied full time, which takes one year; or part time, which takes two years. Students are assessed by formal examination, controlled assessment, case studies and assignments.

The qualification is accredited by the appropriate qualification Regulatory Authorities.

Qualification Aim

This qualification is based on the IAM’s definition of administrative management, namely that the administrative management function supports organisations in planning, organising, directing and controlling their business activities across all functional areas. Thus administrative management and administrative managers have a key role in ensuring that businesses gain and maintain their competitive advantage. The qualification explores how businesses design and operate internal structures and systems that support these goals.

Candidates will develop a holistic approach to business together with the analytical and evaluative skills necessary for those in management positions. They will gain fundamental knowledge, understanding and skills to manage effectively and efficiently business and administrative functions across organisations.

The qualification has a flexible structure and includes a range of optional units. This enables candidates to tailor it to their specific needs while maintaining the consistence of the qualification.

The qualification leads to further studies in management at level 5 and to higher education.

Qualification structure

This qualification has eight mandatory units; seven optional units. Candidates have to complete all mandatory units and, in addition to this, any two optional units of their choice. Candidates need to achieve a minimum of 120 credits to complete the qualification.

Assessment

The mandatory units are grouped into four assessment groups. Candidates pass or fail the full group. This means that two mandatory units are assessed by one assessment. The assessments for all mandatory units are set and marked by the IAM. This minimises the assessment burden for candidates and centre staff while enabling candidates to complete the qualification in small, achievable steps. The thematic grouping of the units provides centres and candidates with a coherent, logical structure for tuition and assessment.

All optional units are assessed individually, by an assignment set by the IAM, marked by the centre and moderated by the IAM. This ensures that the qualification caters for the needs of candidates who may have some difficulty with writing examinations while keeping the rigour of assessment and not placing a considerable assessment burden on centre staff.

Certification and grading

The units are not graded individually; candidates may pass or fail. However, they will be informed of the percentage value of their achievement. On the successful completion of the full qualification they will receive a qualification certificate graded as pass, merit or distinction.
