BSc (Hons) in Business Management

BSc (Hons) in Business Management

 

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Business Management is targeted at those wishing to build a career in management, mainly in the profit-driven sectors. The programme carefully combines theoretical and practical learning through pedagogical approaches and work-related learning to ensure the production of graduates with both the knowledge and the skills to succeed in the cutthroat business sectors of Botswana and elsewhere.

Programme details: The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules as detailed below. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, in-class and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
