The Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration is built on to the Associate degree in Business Studies and provides the opportunity for graduates of the Associate degree in Business Studies or an equivalent qualification, to buttress their knowledge and become a specialist in any of the following areas:

  1. Accounting
  2. Finance and Management
  3. Human Resource Management
  4. Marketing

 

The aim of this upper-level programme is to:

  1. develop the learner’s analytical and problem-solving skills in the business environment
  2. give the students the understanding of concepts and theories learned as they are applied in:
    1. Human Resource Management
    2. Marketing
    3. Accounting
    4. Finance and Management so that they provide a fundamental basis for decision making and business behaviour
  3. develop and apply the theories and concepts delivered across the programme as a whole and within the pathways in particular.

There are 72 credits in the upper division of the Bachelor’s degree programme. The programme is a dynamic one, where students will be exposed to industry practices and experiences during the delivery of the course units. The dynamism of the programme is enhanced given the methods of assessment applied in the teaching/learning process. Learners will, to a large extent, be conducting research-based activities, undertaking application assignments and completing a period of internship in the industry.
