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 builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills that candidates developed at
level 4. It explores, in more depth and in more complex contexts, 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 also become familiar with the theory that underpins research, with the elements of formal research and with research methods and techniques.
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 6 and to higher education.
The mandatory units are grouped into four assessment groups. Candidates pass or fail the full group. This means that several mandatory units are assessed by one assessment.
All optional units are assessed individually.
