Undergraduate Diploma in Business Leadership


The Undergraduate Diploma in Business Leadership (60 ECTS) gives learners the necessary skills to work as supervisors, managers and leaders within organisations.

Overall Competences

During this module, our students will:

  • Analyse the particular roles of the manager, leader and administrator in an in-depth manner.
  • Gain a better understanding of the underlying business processes and critically assess how business can be re-structured to achieve maximum efficiency and competitivity. 
  • Learn which components make a particular company more successful than the other.
  • Differentiate between SMEs’ and large companies’ needs and problems. 
  • Understand the concepts of organisational change and innovation.

Reaching the end of my Diploma in Business Leadership at MLI, I have nothing but praise for this Institute. I live in Gozo and following a Part time study in Malta was out of the question due to the fact that it was practically impossible given the time constraints. However, since MLI started offering online lectures during COVID restrictions, I felt it was the right time to pursue something I never thought I could do. My experience at MLI has been very enriching in terms of the knowledge taught and combining that knowledge with my work experience, surely improved my skills at work. MLI tutors and lecturers are experts in their field and are very helpful and cooperative, supporting students in every way. Their main objective is to see each and every student successfully complete a study, no matter the difficulties one may experience along the way. I most certainly recommend Malta Leadership Institute for all age groups, but most of all to those who, like me, feel that they are too old to actually start studying again. Kudos to all MLI lecturers and staff for helping me tick off another goal on my bucket list.
