ORIENTATION

Welcome to the Bachelor-Honours in Business (BA-Hons) Degree. The Bachelor Honours in Business Administration (BA-Hons) Degree is a culmination of the EDUVISA Diploma in Management (Dip.Man) (IQF-L5) (Bachelor 1st Year), Higher Diploma in Management (HDip.Man) (IQF-L5) (Bachelor 2nd Year), Graduate Diploma in Management (GDip.Man) (IQF-L5) (Bachelor 3rd Year) (GDip.Man) (RQF-L5) (Summative Examination) followed by a Bachelor-Honours Capstone Year (BA-Hons Top-Up) at a UK-University of choice or alternatively at an EDUVISA recommended Partner University.

The BA-Hons Capstone Year builds on the theory and practical application of the UniQual/Ofqual prescribed generic BBA/MBA curriculum completed during the Dip.Man, HDip.Man and GDip.Man and forms the final academic phase of the Bachelor in Business (BA-Hons) Degree pathway resulting in a Bachelor-Honours (BA-Hons) (RQF-L6) Degree that is awarded by a UK or alternative university of choice as selected by the candidate.  

    The Bachelor-Hons in Business (BA-Hons) Degree is completed online at the UK or international university of choice and may consist of prescribed curriculum-mapped Module Tests and Assignments (Formative Assessment) and Hons-Thesis (Summative Assessment) that will be completed via the Online Learner Management System (OLMS) of the selected university.  

     

    TYPICAL CURRICULUM 

    The typical curriculum may consist of several module-mapped assignments that have to be completed in consultation with the lecturing staff at the university of choice. The submission of module-mapped assignments may have to be supplemented by a Hons-Thesis depending on the requirement of the specific university. The following topics would typically be covered in assignments:

    • Strategic Management - This module addresses strategy and examines an organisation within its strategic and competitive context (1500-4500 words)
    • Work-Based Major Project - This module enables the candidate to build on your learning throughout the course to carry out an in-depth project dealing with an issue that is relevant to you and your work (3000-12000 words).

    • Work-Based Project Impact and Review - Having completed the project, the candidate will assess its impact, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your recommendations, and gather feedback from colleagues, peers, and academics (6000 words).

    • Reflections on Practice and Career Progression - In this module, the candidate will evaluate practical and leadership skills to plan future management scenarios relevant to personal and career development (3000 words).

    Candidates who have completed the Post-Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDip.BMan) (Formative and Summative Assessment) may register for an MBA Top-Up  (Dissertation) at a British or alternative university of choice (online /campus).
