The Chartall Business College Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree focuses on the management and administration of people, processes, procedures and systems (MAPPPS). It has been widely benchmarked with similar BBAs offered in other countries.
The qualification offers a logical progression in learning by introducing students to the basic concepts, theories and fundamental knowledge in the first year, which enables them to master the more complex skills of analysing, interpreting and applying the principles and theories of management and administration in a business context in the second and third years.
This BBA is aimed at people employed (or aspiring to be employed) in the financial, property or employee wellness sectors, who wish to acquire a degree in one of these fields for advancement in their industry.
The design of the Chartall Business College BBA has a very strong workplace focus and employers will see the impact of this as the student progresses through the qualification. The compulsory research project in the final year must address a significant workplace challenge. The student will be required to undertake a rigorous research study on this challenge and propose a solution that can make a real contribution to business improvement.
Access to the BBA degree will be given to applicants who hold a valid South African school leaving certificate which includes a pass in English at 60%. Access will also be considered where persons can provide a valid equivalent qualification (as recognised by SAQA). Exceptional applications from students who do not meet the above requirement will be admitted at the discretion of the College Council.
Applicants need either to be employed (preferably in one of the named sectors), or to produce evidence that they will be able to complete the workplace based learning, workplace based assessments and workplace based research project (dissertation).
Assessment will be undertaken per subject and will include successful completion of subject assignments, e-tests and the final subject exam.
The degree of Bachelor of Business Administration will be conferred upon students who successfully complete all the required subjects, at a duly arranged graduation ceremony.
Students who have completed courses or subjects in other programmes that are related directly to those in this qualification could be given credit for such learning through an RPL assessment at the discretion of the College Council.
This qualification articulates systemically with cognate Bachelor Honours degrees and Post Graduate Diplomas at NQF Level 8. It also articulates horizontally with cognate Advanced Diplomas at NQF Level 7.
