There are 71 credits in the upper division of the Bachelor’s degree programme. The programme is a dynamic one, where students will be exposed to industry practices and experiences during the delivery of the course units. The dynamism of the programme is enhanced given the methods of assessment applied in the teaching/learning process. Learners will, to a large extent, be conducting research based activities, undertaking application assignments and completing a period of internship in industry. The programme is the final two-years of a four (4) year undergraduate course of study with a total of 71 credits. After successfully completing the final two years of the programme, the learner will be awarded the Bachelor Degree (see structure for Bachelor Degree programme). In order to meet the challenges of the 21st century there is the need to have a programme that is on the cutting edge of business education and training. Learners will be able to work both locally and internationally as well as move on to the Masters level if they so desire. The focus is to offer multiple paths enabling graduates to successfully obtain core competencies in business concepts. Hence the structure is tailored for the students’ desired career objectives as well as national and industry needs. This focus is supported by a curriculum based on national and international standards; use of contemporary business education methodologies, techniques, and tools across courses; partnership with local industry; and student-focused delivery modalities and assessment activities. This diversity produces well trained, well rounded business professionals who should have both theoretical and practical understanding of the roles of business organizations in the modern society. Specializations: The programme offers four (4) areas of specialization: Accounting, Marketing, Finance and Management and Human Resource Management. Finance and Management The business sector in Jamaica and by extension the Caribbean is poised as being one of the major contributors to economic development within the next couple of years. The financial sector is robust with various banking entities, cooperative societies, stock brokerage firms, insurance and other financial services reporting billions of dollars in profit each year and contributing to employment of over 100, 000 Jamaicans. Accounting The overall objective of this option is to provide academic programs that enable students to prepare for entry into the profession of accountancy. The curriculum is under continual review to ensure that it is responsive to the changing requirements of the accounting profession. This course is designed to provide graduates with high-level skills in both the specialized field of accounting and the general field of business management. Graduates will be capable of pursuing careers in professional accounting and a wide range of business fields. The course blends a conceptual theoretical framework with practical applications and covers basic discipline material through to more specialized accounting requirements. Marketing The marketing major enables students to understand the activities that are essential to promoting products and services, as well as developing and distributing them to the ultimate consumers. Marketing courses stress problem solving and decision making, as well as the development and implementation of marketing policies and strategies. Students completing the program find exciting, action-oriented careers in fields such as personal selling, retailing, advertising, product development, manufacturing, social media, distribution and market research. Human Resource Management The HR management major is designed for students interested in developing an understanding of the nature and capabilities of human resources. The study and understanding of management principles and practices will aid those who intend to enter the field professionally as administrators, executives, operations managers, human resource managers, management consultants, or in other management positions. Students graduating with a HR management major are employed by a variety of organizations in industries such as manufacturing, public utilities, and transportation, merchandising and banking, as well as government and non-profit entities. A sound background in accepted management principles can accelerate progress to positions of greater responsibility.
