Executive Diploma in Management (EDM)

The Executive Diploma in Management (EDM) and the Diploma in Banking and Financial Services (DBFS) contribute to the advancement of many of our graduates. Additionally, they provide a platform for further learning in particular for the CHSB/UWI MBA programmes. When you have successfully completed these programmes, they can be used to meet part of the entry requirements for the MBA programmes. Furthermore, because the UWI is an internationally respected and accredited University, the EDM and DBFS, like all of its other programmes, are accepted throughout the world. 

These programmes focus significantly on developing your individual ability. The EDM provides an introduction to key aspects of general management and an environment where you can learn from the experiences of both academics and managers from other organisations. The DBFS focuses on developing comprehensive banking and financial services practitioners. Its goal is to provide participants with knowledge and skills that can be readily applied to their daily activities to enhance their effectiveness on the job. 

Your employer will also gain direct benefits. Not only do the EDM and DBFS equip you with effective and applicable management skills but also, they encourage you to view your organisation as more than the sum of its parts. You also learn the importance of using this broader vision in formulating effective management decisions.
