In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity (INTI) is in­tro­duc­ing a new fully on­line busi­ness de­gree pro­gramme with its first stu­dent in­take this month.

The Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Hons) (BBUS) Learn­ing Sim­pli­fied is in­cor­po­rated with IBM In­no­va­tion Cen­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion (ICE) mod­ules to en­cour­age up­skilling among work­ing adults and drive dig­i­tal lit­er­acy.

INTI In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity & Col­leges CEO Ti­mothy Bulow said: “As diploma grad­u­ates progress in their cur­rent job roles, we be­lieve that a way to help them move for­ward in their ca­reer is through pur­su­ing new skills, in­for­ma­tion and qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

“How­ever, we have heard from many diploma hold­ers that they are un­able to fur­ther their stud­ies due to fi­nan­cial and time con­straints, and in­con­ve­nience of lo­ca­tion.

“BBUS hopes to ad­dress these is­sues head on and pro­vide work­ing Diploma grad­u­ates with an op­por­tu­nity to en­hance their em­ploy­a­bil­ity and skillset without dis­rupt­ing their work-life balance.”

The pro­gramme fo­cuses on the up­skilling of work­ing pro­fes­sional’s dig­i­tal lit­er­acy, or the un­der­stand­ing and use of tech­nol­ogy to for­mu­late ideas — a key com­pe­tency that 30 per cent of em­ploy­ers re­garded to as the most es­sen­tial com­pe­tency needed for job per­for­mance. To com­ple­ment this, BBUS On­line in­cludes a se­lec­tion of four IBM ICE mod­ules taught by cer­ti­fied IBM ex­perts. This in­cludes Busi­ness An­a­lyt­ics for Func­tional Ar­eas, In­tro­duc­tion to Busi­ness An­a­lyt­ics, Quan­ti­ta­tive Meth­ods for Busi­ness, and So­cial, Web and Mo­bile An­a­lyt­ics.

Bulow added: “As a pro­gres­sive mover in higher ed­u­ca­tion, we work to­wards equip­ping our stu­dents with cut­tingedge skills that will pre­pare them to not only bridge their ca­reer path with goals but to be a leader in their cho­sen field. In do­ing so, we try to reach out to stu­dents in dif­fer­ent cir­cum­stances and work to­wards

We try to reach out to stu­dents in dif­fer­ent cir­cum­stances and work to­wards de­sign­ing pro­grammes that are best-suited for them.
