The Institute for Work Based Learning delivers these programmes with our strategic partners at Consalia.
We offer two routes to gaining a postgraduate master's in Sales Transformation. One programme is for sales leaders, the other for sales professionals involved in selling complex solutions. These are unique programmes. They focus on applying world-class, leading-edge thinking and expertise in leadership and sales to participants' transformation goals in their own organisations.
The Masters programmes provide organisations with the first opportunity to offer academic recognition to their sales leaders and salespeople for their sales experience and excellence in a work environment. Both programmes are totally focused on sales roles and based on proven practices for performance improvement and real-world learning.
The purpose of these programmes is to improve the professional status of salespeople, which is all too often overlooked, and to provide organisations with important research and innovation on sales practices. Modules designed by Consalia and validated by Middlesex University are included in each.
Both Masters programmes can be tailored to an organisation's specific approach to sales and sales management. The Masters programmes can, therefore, be fully integrated with an organisation's sales management and sales curriculum. If participants already have the skills/knowledge due to prior learning then they can complete the work-based project without further formal input (or with reduced input).
The programmes are offered on an in-company basis, as a series of modules to be run over a period of 18 months to two years. Each module consists of either a two or three day facilitated workshop.
The UK's only work-based MSc in Sales Transformation

Accreditation for prior learning (APL), allowing you to gain credit for prior study/work experience
Many students choosing to study MSc Sales Transformation will be practitioners in full-time employment, with this in mind, we have designed the course to be flexible around your work and life commitments. You will be able to complete the course part-time through blended and distance learning. However, it would be also possible to shorten this to 12 months depending on how much time you can commit to the course.
The first five modules are delivered and assessed by Consalia. The final module and Masters project is delivered, supervised and assessed by Middlesex University. The academic award is made by Middlesex University.
