The BA (Hons) in Business Administration programme places emphasis on the functional, operational and strategic coordination of business activities. Throughout the course students develop an understanding of how organisational processes enable organisations to respond to external conditions in the market and the wider environment. Students gain a theoretical understanding of the nature of business and organisations, whilst developing practical skills, problem solving, risk assessment, group work and personal initiative. This programme follows a rationale based on the principles of studying organisations as separate functions, interdependent operations and strategic entities. It provides students with the necessary theoretical knowledge and managerial skills to be locally and internationally competitive. It promotes and emphasizes entrepreneurship through modules such as “Start a Business” and “Planning Your Career”. It cultivates the search for innovation through modules such as “Creativity and Innovation in Organisations” and addresses contemporary issues in business, global environment and operations management.
