Masters of the Universe

One of the biggest complaints that internal communicators have in the UK is the lack of formal professional qualification opportunities. It looks as though Kingston University is addressing this in part with the launch of their new Masters Degree. Only thing that looks slightly oodd is that it looks like you have to have completed the Diploma before you can get on the Masters.

I talked to several other people who've been around internal comms for a good few years now, and we all agreed that the Diploma was a bit junior and not worth investing £4,000 (a year??) on. So, would we automatically be excluded from the Masters? And are Kingston overly-limiting those eligible to gain recognition for their knowledge and experience?
