Impressively, we were the first business school in the UK to offer students the chance to gain a Level 7 Diploma in Professional Consulting, together with their MBA qualification. In recognition of our commitment to the practical application of theory, we are proud to have been awarded Approved Centre status by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). 

The Approved Centre status has been awarded in recognition of Norwich Business School's commitment to the practical application of theory through MBA student consultancy education and projects with live businesses and organisations.

Dan Clarke describes his desire to complete an MBA, explaining how it was essential in helping him change his career direction.


To gain a Level 7 Diploma, students must reach a good standard in certain MBA units. At present there is no additional fee for this extra qualification, and it is not compulsory for students to take the joint award; they can elect to simply undertake the core MBA units and receive the single award of MBA.

The diploma is available to students on all MBA variants offered by Norwich Business School.
