After awarding of the certificate, the program is entered onto the co-curricular record of the student concerned. This record is administered by the Department of Management Practice.

At the end of the third year, all co-curricular activities are included in a portfolio which can then be presented to the interviewer when the student applies for a job. Both academic and co-curricular records will be provided to students for inclusion in the portfolio.
