BACHELOR OF EDUCATION WITH BUSINESS STUDIES

The Bachelor of Education with Business Studies is offered to School Leavers and teachers with certificate or diploma qualifications in education. The programme equips students with a broad understanding of how organizations operate in different environmental contexts, private, and public. It also equips students with knowledge and skills of teaching commercial subjects at secondary level, curriculum preparation and research. The programme further prepares graduates for management and administrative positions in schools. The development of this programme was motivated by the shortage of teaching staff with a deep understanding of operations of businesses in secondary schools, with desirable levels of qualifications. Graduates of this programme would be very valuable for the success of private school set ups.
