    Hi Guys,

    I live in South-Africa, just completed my CMI Level-7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership, and enrolled for the CMI Post Grad Dip.

    My question, I want to obtain a degree as quickly and affordably as possible, as I have obviously done and will do all the course work in the above mentioned courses.

    I also have a HND, so I'm aware of the BA (Hons) top up option, but since I have done all the courses and more in the Level-7 Dip, I don’t see myself doing one of those in the near future, unless the Un's offer more credit, but apparently they do not offer credit towards a BA using your Level-7 Dip as this will go towards a Post grad degree.

    I’m also aware of the MA top up from Leeds Trinity College University, which as this stage seems the best option, as the price is fairly affordable, taking into consideration the exchange rate, and one only have to complete a thesis, with no course work.

    Are you aware of any other options? I only want a degree to be more employable, as the current market here longs for candidates to have a degree, as minimum requirement, for a decent job. I'm not worried to learn anything as I believe most were/are covered in the CMI courses.
    We don’t have anything in South-Africa remotely resembling top-up degrees, so no options here.
    Any idea?
