Course Description

This programme has been re-designed to enable students complete the entire programme in four years part-time. The programme examines the core functions of business, and focuses on the key dynamics, skillsets, and knowledge required to manage organisations in the fast- moving and competitive global business environment.

Students entering Year 1 of the programme should register on the Higher Certificate in Business (HCBS) ACCS. Students who successfully complete the HCBS to merit level may progress to Year 3 of the Bachelor of Business (Honours) programme.

The re-designed programme provides students with the opportunity to take a Work Placement module. Students who are presently in the workplace, or who have prior relevant work experience, may apply to have their present work/prior relevant work experience recognised through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. (Please note that if you are presently in employment you will not have to leave your workplace in order to complete the Work Placement module. For more information on WITs RPL policy visit:
