CHANGES IN HIGHER EDUCATION

The faculty has geared itself to meet contemporary educational challenges by implementing innovative ways of designing and delivering its brand new suite of postgraduate qualifications, (commencing with the Postgraduate Diploma) in response to the call by the fourth industrial revolution for innovative management expertise relevant to a rapidly transforming local and global knowledge economy.   These programmes are delivered in the form of flexible teaching and learning methodologies which include and accommodate the needs of working adult learners, to balance work and study commitments through lifelong learning.

The broad range of nationally-accredited undergraduate qualifications equips students with requisite managerial skills within their chosen fields of study. In addition, these programmes are designed to articulate towards postgraduate masters and doctoral degrees that equip students with advanced levels of knowledge and competencies in their fields of study, critical to engaging in the demands of a continuously evolving global knowledge economy.
