As we are wrapping up the third quarter and on the verge of entering the final quarter of the year, our delegates seem to be determined to achieve their career goals as they attend the Certificate in Business Administration (CBA) programme. This is the second CBA intake this year which is made up of a versatile group of delegates, including those in public and private sectors, entrepreneurs, as well as high school graduates.

This six-month programme comprises of an intense curriculum that is developed by the School of Management, IT & Governance and taught by academics from the University and industry professionals with many years of practical business experience. Modules in this programme focus on current issues, critical thinking, innovation, creativity and finding solutions to work and business challenges through case studies, group projects and presentations. The four core modules include Introduction to Management Science; Business Computing and Logical Reasoning; Environment of Business; and Business Communication.

Lectures take place in the evenings, from Monday to Thursday. Every Tuesday, delegates have practical lessons on the Business Computing and Logical Reasoning module which takes place at one of the computer local area networks on the Westville campus.  The CBA programme also allows delegates an opportunity to apply for a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree, at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, provided that all other requirements of the University are met. It is also a standalone programme which allows delegates the option of completing this six-month certificate programme in order to assist them with their current roles/jobs.

We would like to wish our CBA delegates the very best in their respective career paths!
