Current Students

Faculty of Business and Economics

The Faculty's academic focus is directed towards developing professionals who can sustain and develop the work of the public and private sectors of the region's economies. The Faculty of Business and Economics offers certificate, diploma and bachelorís degree programs, as well as programs at postgraduate level. The programs offer opportunities either to specialise in a particular academic discipline or alternatively to obtain a general business education. All programs are designed to provide the graduate with an understanding of how specialist skills can contribute to the overall commercial environment. Opportunities to pursue interdisciplinary studies exist and students are encouraged to consider these. A double major with the Bachelor of Commerce including Information Systems (a discipline offered by the School of Computing, Information and Mathematical Sciences in the Faculty of Science and Technology) is expected to be especially popular.
