chartered manager - apprenticeships Combining a degree with on-the-job training, the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) has been jointly developed by employers, universities and the Chartered Management Institute. At Birmingham City University, the CMDA will provide the opportunity to gain a degree in BA (Hons) Business Management, a professional qualification and paid relevant work experience.

As an approved apprenticeship standard, it allows employers to use the apprenticeship levy and gives apprentices a head start in their management career. 

Our CMDA is a three-year work-based learning programme, offering flexible delivery options including day release and block release, using blended learning to suit employees in a wide variety of management roles at companies of all sizes.

Topics covered include Contemporary HR for Managers, Marketing Foundations, Finance for Managers, Operations for Managers, Supply Chain Management, Applied Management and Contemporary Global Management Issues. There will also be opportunities for negotiated work-based learning.
