Diploma in Commerciality
Commerciality is becoming increasingly important to employers. In addition to a strong academic background, graduates need to be equipped with a range of core competencies and sounds commercial acumen. It has also been recognised that there is a gap between what graduates expect and what employers need.
Our aim is to bridge this gap and help students develop their skills and market their capabilities to potential employers more effectively.
The Diploma in Commerciality has been designed with input from top employers to help graduates make the important transition from education to work covering aspects of the selection and recruitment process. Students discover and develop the skills that are most valued by employers, assess their current strengths and developmental needs, reflect, and become more able to articulate their experiences clearly when talking to employers.

What is in the course?
The Diploma in Commerciality is the perfect course for those looking to enhance their career prospects and develop their business knowledge.
Using a structured framework, students will analyse case studies to see the ingredients that combine to make a successful business. Students will also analyse the individuals that run the businesses to highlight the key commercial skills needed for success.
The course is interactive & experiential, participants will develop their commercial skills and knowledge almost without realising it.
Towards the end of the course a personal diagnosis will be unlocked. This will include a breakdown of their key commercial strengths as well as areas for improvement. This will be used as a starting point to showcase their strengths in a C.V. builder and plan for further development to improve their weaknesses.
