More About the Programme

This is a broad and comprehensive qualification that will provide you with a sound understanding of, and skills in, administering and managing a business. You will cover core modules such as Business Management, Economics, Project Management, Business Ethics, Business Law and Financial Management. You also cover subject areas such as Business English and Computer Skills, as well as a choice of specialist elective groups with major subjects. Because of our degree’s unique emphasis on application, you will select, conduct and present a research project and complete Work Integrated Learning (WIL) in your third year.

The success of our Bachelor of Business Administration lies in its flexibility of subject choice and a curriculum that is relevant. By introducing you to research, we are also preparing you for Honours studies – an essential element of undergraduate degrees. This approach ensures that you graduate with essential work skills such as critical, creative and strategic thinking, being adaptable to change, effective problem solving, working to deadlines, collaborating in team situations and communicating effectively.

Work and learn

We offer 3 Semesters(Trimesters) a year and new students are able to enrol at any of these start dates. Trimesters have a duration of 12 weeks and students will have a number of activities and tasks to be completed and a live lecture weekly. A formative assessment(exam) needs to be completed on Campus at the end of each Trimester which concludes the module. Students will have a 2 week break between Trimesters to recharge. Typically a part time programme will take a student 18 months to complete a level and about 5 years to complete all three levels while working.
