The curriculum is business focused and is based on three themes: application, integration and autonomy. In addition to core, in-depth and specialised knowledge areas, learners will gain skills and competencies in key business disciplines, and experience how these business areas integrate with each other and other business disciplines.
The overall aim of this programme leading to the award of Bachelors in Business (Honours) is to provide its learners with the necessary theoretical and practical skills, knowledge and competence, to gain a comprehensive, specialised and in-depth, understanding of the business area.
A particular focus of this programme is preparing the learner for work and to contribute effectively in the general business arena and/or continue in further studies. Learners will also experience varying degrees of autonomy, particularly in the individual applied business related project.
This is a 60 credit, add-on programme.
