Certificate in Business Studies
Whatever career you aspire to a qualification in Business Studies is of immense value. If you become a surgeon, a teacher, or a pilot you will be required to manage resources and people. An entrepreneur will have to juggle all of these resources and maximise the return from each in order to survive and prosper. An understanding of finance will assist you in dealing competently with banks and accountants. A Certificate in Business Studies thus provides the successful participant with a sound basis on which to build a promising career.
The objective of this programme is to gain a solid understanding of the major tasks with which a career in business encounters on a day to day basis. The IT and accountancy modules assist in delivering the required level of competency to deal with every day tasks that arise in a business, in whatever sector.
