A three year Bachelor Honours degree that provides an understanding of key business areas such as Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Management Information Systems and in addition demonstrates how the national and international business environments are shaped by dynamic forces. Students are assisted in developing the knowledge, skills and competencies needed for the modern business environment. Ideally suited to individuals who want to work in their own family companies, set up their own businesses, work in international firms around the world or progress to Master level studies. The degree is particularly valuable for students who have decided they want to study business but are not sure what they want to do afterwards (due to the fact that all the functional areas of a company are studied which gives a broad range of subjects for the student to explore).
