Certificate Description

The SEM courses are non-degree and non-credit bearing programmes. Participants get a certificate of completion at the end of the programme called the SEM Certificate. The SEM series of courses provide business executives, managers and ICT professionals with the skills and competencies they need to manage their time, communicate effectively, motivate their employees, resolve workplace confrontations, prevent and address inappropriate workplace behaviour, conduct legal and unbiased employee interviews, and manage the performance of their direct reports. Students who earn the full certificate possess a recognised and highly regarded credential to give them the competitive edge they are seeking while contributing greater value to their organisation.


The Special Executive Masters Courses (SEMC) are Executive Education courses. They are “non-credit bearing and non-degree holding”. The SEMC are not an actual Masters Programme but a trademark of the Rocheltenham Business School. The SEMC bears similarities with the “Mini MBA” offered by Universities all around the world. However, the modules of the SEMC are modelled after the regular Masters Degree Courses which allow executives to gain a thorough knowledge of the subject. SEMC Certificate cannot be used as a Master’s Certificate or disguised as such as it carries no credit and cannot be used to pursue an academic PhD. However the relevance of the certificate lies in the knowledge of the bearer to demonstrate adequate and sound knowledge of the subject the certificate was issued in, and this certificate counts towards the appropriate Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
