You will be expected to complete a written assignment, between 3,000 to 4,000 words, at the end of each module that you study, allowing you to demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge and skills, which you have mastered during the modules.

Your assignments will then be be submitted online and marked by your personal CMI tutor. 

Once you have successfully passed all your assignments, you will then be awarded your new CMI qualification, while also enabling you to progress to the next level and begin your Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management & Leadership
