Registration is open for the November intake of students for the Bachelor of Business Studies from the Open University. With no formal entry requirements, elective exit levels and the chance to immediately apply new ideas and knowledge in your work environment, the degree opens up opportunities to follow a number of career paths.
In dealing in a business world that is becoming increasingly complex and demanding, managers need to broaden their knowledge base through relevant qualifications that provide real insight into the workings of modern business, equip them to understand business dynamics and develop the knowledge and skills valued by employers.
The accessible Bachelor of Business Studies, powered in South Africa by eDegree, opens up opportunities to follow a number of career paths, as it provides a general understanding of business organisations and environments, markets and processes, and how these work collaboratively.
And, in meeting the needs of the working individual, the internationally-recognised and accredited UK-based Open University provides convenience, flexibility and world-class teaching through distance learning – in fact you can ‘take your university’ wherever it suits you.
The unique style of distance learning is called ‘supported open learning’ – ‘open’ because you learn in your own time and ‘supported’ because you’re never alone as you enjoy full tutor support through online and telephone contact and group tutorials, as well as access to one of the most extensive online university libraries in the world, 24/7.
