BA (Hons) Business Administration – Small Business pathway

 Programme overview

The importance of entrepreneurship and Small and Medium Enterprises have been widely accepted as vital for economic growth and employment generation. The role of higher education in the creation of graduate entrepreneurs is significant. Hence there is need for designing deliberate educational strategy to encourage entrepreneurship among students in particular and society in general.

Entrepreneurs have a set of personal skills, attributes and behaviour that go beyond the purely commercial. The BA (Hons) in Business Administration with Small Business pathway develops the skills that are necessary to meet the demands for setting up and managing own businesses. The programme provides the business management core that includes an extensive background in the functional areas of marketing, accounting, and management; an understanding of the business environment to include the legal, economic, behavioural and human aspects; technical skills in information systems, mathematics and quantitative analysis; and the ability to communicate, integrate and synthesise.

As a graduate you will be able to integrate the theory and practice which will enable you to communicate effectively, understand the internal and external environments of business, appreciate the legal, ethical, strategic and behavioural contexts of business decisions, and understand the financial and economic dynamics which constitute the context for business activity. You will be also equipped with the skills, knowledge and methods that are needed to launch a new enterprise, take over an existing business, or be a dynamic manager who can make a dramatic difference in the future of a small business.
