A CAREER in business today requires a different set of skills, compared to a decade ago. While there will always be a place for traditional qualifications, the South African business landscape is looking for individuals with strong leadership capabilities that c a n mo v e c o mf o r t a b l y between all areas of finance, marketing and management.
“Education is not static and though there are other BCom degrees on offer, our research showed that there was a gap for a qualification that covers all these skills,” says Dr Hendrik Botha, academic head at Boston City Campus & Business College. “The Boston BCom Management Marketing qualification is a bachelor’s degree that specifically equips students with the knowledge and skills for career opportunities in the fields of business, management and marketing.”
“The programme content – coupled with the flexibility it offers – has made this degree an increasingly popular choice with students; regardless of whether the economy is experiencing growth or not, qualified entrepreneurs, marketers and managers are always needed,” says Botha.
The BCom Management Marketing degree has been created to produce the kind of managers and entrepreneurs South Africa needs to take the country forward, exploring new opportunities and avenues of doing business. Prospective students are seeking out alternative means to complete their qualifications. Whether they need to work while studying in order to fund their education, they are too far away from a university, or because they want to further or change their skills set or acquire a formal qualification – there are students who need the flexibility of studying part time with the benefits of accessing a local support centre.
Boston City Campus & Business College offers its degree with flexible study modes. Boston provides students with the best of all worlds – distance learning, whether part- or full-time, with open access to critical support and help. Thousands of students currently make use of this at more than 40 support centres, nationwide.
Many students who take on distance education, thinking they can balance their study, work and home commitments, may find that it’s not as easy as planned. They soon discover they require some form of interaction with educators/tutors in order to achieve a successful outcome.
“At Boston this is achieved through an education platform, enriched by digital video and online interactivity – all supported by a countrywide network of support centres. These centres provide access to computers, online assessments, technology- based training material, digital library facilities, examination venues and administrative services. All students select a support centre and are encouraged to make use of the facilitiesdaily” explains Botha.
The college’s system of pacing studies, combined with a variety of assessments, has seen tertiary and degree students working continuously and doing well.
The Boston BCom Management Marketing degree includes the important aspects of business and marketing management, accounting and finance, entrepreneurship and internationalisation, commercial law, economics, computer literacy, brand management, industrial psychology and project management.
“Graduates will be well equipped to become marketing and/or brand managers, account managers, public relations officers, media or advertising consultants – even store, department, business unit or general managers,” concludes Botha.
