Programme Overview

Through this course KWUST aims to produce graduates with a broad interest in all commercial activities and who will build upon knowledge of the functional, environmental, behavioural, economic and legal aspects of business and provide analytical and conceptual tools for analysing and solving problems. The programme is designed to create a self-directed graduate who will understand the particular challenges women face in the dynamic and multicultural workplace. The graduate will, therefore, enter the job market confident that she knows herself and her skills well enough to compete and be competent to be a leader – in whatever area of operation she may choose.

Upon completion of the course, graduates will

  • Have an awareness of the broad range of knowledge required in business administration
  • Be equipped with specialised knowledge required in the particular profession they wish to enter
  • Develop the analytical and behavioural skills they will require to make effective use of this knowledge in employment
  • Understand the particular challenges women face in the dynamic multicultural workplace
  • Develop the skills and capabilities required to successfully pursue graduate studies in business

The course has seven distinct majors:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • General Management
  • International Business Management
  • Marketing
  • Purchasing and Supply Management
  • Human Resource Management
