Course Description

The OTHM Level 6 Diploma in Accounting and Business is a 360 credit Graduate Diploma which is equivalent to a full Bachelor (Hons) degree similar to a regular university bachelor degree completed from a UK university. This qualification contains the Level 4, Level 5, and Level 6 diploma qualifications altogether. This qualification is globally recognised as a bachelor degree including UK, USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Europe.

This Level 6 qualification is the first choice of college leavers who want to complete a fast- track bachelor level qualification and then to apply for a Master‟s degree to study abroad in UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, and Europe.

Accounting and finance are at the very heart of business operations. From banking to manufacturing, from huge service industries to micro businesses, the ability to manage, plan and account for money is still the ultimate measure of business success and the key driver of growth.

Many accountants occupy key managerial positions in business, yet few are qualified managers. In the increasingly complex modern business environment, there is a high demand for skilled professionals who can work flexibly in teams across business boundaries.

The objective of the OTHM Level 6 Diploma in Accounting and Business (360 credits) qualification is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills required by a middle or senior manager in an organisation, and who may be involved in managing organisational finances, investment and risk, audit and assurance, or research.

Who is it for ?
