Better Business Cases is a newly accredited course that has been developed by the Welsh Government and HM Treasury to ensure better value for money from public spending proposals. It provides a systematic and objective approach to developing a sound business case needed for any project or programme. This course introduces different types of business cases and explores how to develop an effective business case using the 5 Case Model. This product has now become an international standard.

Cardiff University offers courses at both Foundation level (a 1 day course) and Practitioner level (a 3.5 day course). Both the Foundation and Practitioner courses conclude with an examination, which is accredited by the APMG. The Practitioner course is inclusive of the Foundation content and examination.
