Top-up degree in Bachelor in Arts (Hons) (Business Leadership)

Top-up Bachelor of Arts (Business Leadership)


Our Top-up Bachelor of Arts (Business Leadership) (120 ECTS) is ideal for those who would like to become professional supervisors, managers and leaders within an organisation.

It integrates theoretical and practical skills that are vital in the workplace. Our students will learn all about the overall process of conducting business, especially when it comes to making difficult business-related decisions.

It’s also an excellent refresher course for those who would like to take a deep dive into the world of business before pursuing a Master’s degree.

Overall Competences

During this module, our students will:

  • Gain an understanding of business organisations and their processes.
  • Have the opportunity to assess how these organisations can be re-structured.
  • Learn all about the different components that make an organisation successful.
  • Have the opportunity to reflect on the skills managers, leaders and administrators critically need to be successful.
  • Discuss what societal aspects need to be taken into consideration when conducting business.
  • Differentiate between SMEs and larger organisations.
  • Develop their understanding of organisational development and change.

Course Structure


A business leadership degree prepares you for a job in the competitive business sector. Try to decide on the sector and area that you’re most interested in and do your utmost to find an internship in that sector during your studies.
Industries such as chemicals, utilities, fashion, health, construction, food production and iGaming all require business leadership graduates. They need individuals who understand how operational processes work. Business graduates can do just that. Alternatively, you can opt for an academic career by pursuing a Master’s Degree at Malta Leadership Institute or any other institute in Malta and abroad.

Entry Criteria


Third Country Nationals


I joined MLI to read for a Diploma in Business Leadership in 2019. The very knowledgeable and extremely helpful tutors together with the support of the friendly staff at MLI made this journey easier for someone like me who left school more than 2 decades ago. Unquestionably, enrolling for this course was the best investment I have ever made in myself as I am now in a position to backup my work experience with a recognised qualification. Following the successful completion of the Diploma, I decided to enrol for the Top Up Degree course in Business Leadership and am now in the process of submitting my final dissertation and will hopefully become a graduate within a few months. MLI made possible what I always thought was impossible for me. The only disadvantage is that you will become addicted as you will want to keep on challenging your abilities. However, MLI's fees are very competitive and yet, you can still get 70% back from the Get Qualified scheme.
