Will I receive a certificate of completion if I miss a part of the programme?

You will receive a certificate of completion when you attended the whole programme and have handed in all of the required assignments (if applicable). If you miss part of a one-day programme you will not receive a certificate of completion. If you miss part of a longer programme( two days or more), depending on the programme and the amount of time you have missed, your situation and your eligibility for a certificate will be reviewed by the programme manager, and the learning and development manager.

In general we use the following rules:

  • If a participant misses less than half a day with a valid reason, the programme manager, learning and development manager and the teacher will discuss issuing a certificate of completion.
  • If a participant misses more than half a day, they could compensate by completing a special assignment, after which the certificate of completion can be issued.

If a participant misses an entire day or more, no certificate of completion will be issued.

What is the value of a RSM diploma or certificate?

RSM is accredited by all of the top international accreditation bodies: EFDM, AMBA, and AACSB, and the NVAO for our degree programmes. This authorises us to issue diplomas. RSM is a top-tier institution with world-class academics in research and education in business; this means our diplomas derive value from our reputation. A diploma is issued upon proof that the participant has complied with the criteria for the diploma (this usually means successfully completing one or more graded assignments). A certificate for completion is issued for attendance and proves you successfully completed a programme at RSM.
