Choose rel­e­vant cour­ses

Bos­ton urges prospec­tive stu­dents to choose cour­ses that are rel­e­vant to the times we live in

Inner City Gazette - - News -

Ac­cord­ing to Natalie Rab­son of Bos­ton City Cam­pus & Busi­ness Col­lege, it is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly im­por­tant for stu­dents to choose one of the mod­ern cour­ses of study that are rel­e­vant to the mod­ern times in which we are liv­ing and work­ing.

“Ed­u­ca­tion is not static and Bos­ton there­fore main­tains a li­ai­son with var­i­ous in­dus­tries, up­dates course ma­te­rial, and in­tro­duces new cour­ses such as Cloud com­put­ing to keep grad­u­ates in line with the de­mand from the work­place,” she elab­o­rates.

“Our re­search, for ex­am­ple, showed that there was a gap for a qual­i­fi­ca­tion that cov­ers skills such as skills in the so­cial me­dia and dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing fields and so the Bos­ton BCom Man­age­ment Mar­ket­ing de­gree was born.

This de­gree equips stu­dents with the knowl­edge and skills for ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in the fields of busi­ness, man­age­ment and mar­ket­ing, fo­cus­ing on dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing, so­cial me­dia and brand man­age­ment - all buzz­words in the mar­ket­ing field of to­day.”

Rab­son be­lieves the course con­tent as well as the flex­i­bil­ity it of­fers in­di­vid­u­als, makes the BCom Man­age­ment Mar­ket­ing de­gree an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar choice with stu­dents.

“A“A broad based busi­ness qual­i­fi­ca­tion has so much value for you in terms of em­ploy­ment.

Our busi­ness qual­i­fi­ca­tions cover Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Ac­count­ing and Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment, as well as Mar­ket­ing and more. These are the skills you will need to add value to a com­pany.

Re­gard­less of whether the econ­omy is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing growth or not, qual­i­fied en­trepreneurs, mar­keters and man­agers are al­ways needed in or­der to pro­mote ex­ist­ing and new prod­ucts and ser­vices

and man­agers are al­ways needed in or­der to pro­mote ex­ist­ing and new prod­ucts and ser­vices “Busi­ness and man­age­ment qual­i­fi­ca­tions mean a chance at a bet­ter life for me and one day, for my fam­ily. It will en­able me to get into a job that is both fi­nan­cially sta­ble and com­fort­able,’ says Mua­nalo Madzunye, one of the stu­dents cur­rently en­rolled in the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment.

Madzunye says that the flex­i­bil­ity is ab­so­lutely ideal for her. ‘Some days I do get quite a bit of work done while on other days I have the free­dom to have a per­sonal day,” she ex­plains. “All in all, the flex­i­bil­ity al­lows me to keep my stud­ies up to date.

Study­ing through Bos­ton al­lows me to fit in my var­i­ous in­ter­ests and study at my own pace.”

Bos­ton makes the ap­pli­ca­tion and reg­is­tra­tion pro­cesses so sim­ple. Ap­pli­ca­tions are done free of charge and on-line, and you get a re­sponse within 3 days.

What other in­sti­tu­tion acts so speed­ily for you? These are easy steps to get­ting en­rolled, and cost free un­til you make the com­mit­ment to reg­is­ter.

“We also of­fer great ac­tiv­i­ties to en­cour­age so­cial in­ter­ac­tion with your peers as well as your com­mu­nity” says Rab­son.

“Stu­dents do not op­er­ate in iso­la­tion – suc­cess is bred from com­mu­ni­ties and networking, and con­tribut­ing to so­ci­ety. We try and fa­cil­i­tate these in­ter­ac­tions”

An­other course that has re­ceived at­ten­tion is Bos­ton’s higher cer­tifi­cate in HIV/Aids Coun­selling and Man­age­ment. Ac­cord­ing to Rab­son, there are big pluses in favour of do­ing Bos­ton’s higher cer­tifi­cate in HIV/Aids Coun­selling and Man­age­ment. “With our cer­tifi­cate you can find good em­ploy­ment,” she says. “Many big com­pa­nies nowa­days run well­ness pro­grammes and HIV/Aids sup­port pro­grammes for their work­forces and em­ploy qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists for that. If you pre­fer to be your own boss, you can start of­fer­ing your coun­selling ser­vices to com­pa­nies and NGOs as an in­de­pen­dent pro­fes­sional.
