Description

The purpose of this Higher Certificate in Business Management is to familiarise students with the fundamental principles and practices of business management which will allow students to build a solid foundation on the theories within business management and its application into a 21st century organisational working environment.

The exit level outcomes of this programme have been carefully designed and focused on the core theoretical foundations that underpin businesses within the context of South Africa but also the role of technology in the business environment. This Higher Certificate is further supported by the Graduate Attributes which are imbedded into the curriculum to develop students in becoming well-rounded ethical and professional business practitioners, adopting a transformative and responsible leader through which their active participation within local communities brings change for the better.

Progression/Articulation

Students may pursue further studies in Business Management at an accredited institution of Higher Education. Admission to further your studies at a different institution remains the prerogative of each institution and its academic council.
ARTICULATION: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) processes and Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) are articulation mechanisms. The institution reserves the right to conduct a formal assessment for purposes of CAT. An evaluation will be conducted to recognise prior learning. This evaluation may or may not be based on a form of formal assessment and can include a portfolio of evidence submission. These mechanisms are in line with the HEQSF as envisaged in the NQF Act 67 of 2008 and the CHE “Policies on the Recognition of Prior Learning, Credit Accumulation and Transfer, and Assessment in Higher Education” published by the CHE in August 2016.
