PGDipFBLM Faith-based Leadership and Management

University of Otago

The aim of the Postgraduate Diploma in Faith-Based Leadership and Management (PGDipFBLM) is to enhance leadership and management in faith-based organisations, through the incorporation of current scholarship in both Theology and Business Administration. The PGDipFBLM is designed to enhance a graduate's leadership and management of faith-based organisations and to enable advanced reflection and research on the practice of leadership and management.

The admission requirement is a degree or equivalent three-year qualification in any subject area with satisfactory grades. In cases where the student’s prior qualifications do not include theological study, he or she may be required to undertake one or more 300-level papers in Theology in order to satisfy the prerequisites for specific 400-level papers in BIBS and/or CHTH.

All the Theology papers offered for this qualification will be taught by distance; with a few papers taught both on campus and by distance in the same semester. The MBA papers are taught both on campus and by distance.

The BMBA timetable will be made available in November 2021, at which point you will have the opportunity to register your interest in your chosen BMBA papers. For this timetable, please contact:

Places in the online BMBA papers are limited in 2022, however the MBA programme will do their best to allocate you a place in your chosen papers. Please be aware that you may be placed on a waitlist for a paper or be advised that you need to take the paper at another time.
