The minimum graduation load for Bachelor of Business Administration is 132 credit units.

Note:

At the end of the second semester of every academic year, students will undertake Community Engagement projects of 3 credit units each within the communities where they reside. These community engagement projects will be for approximately 4 months and will be mandatory for every student to take part. These will be assessed community engagement projects that are meant to provide hands on experience to students in their respective disciplines. On completion of their degrees programmes, the student should have been involved in community engagement projects of approximately one year distributed across the three years of study. We anticipate that by doing so, students will be exposed to problems around their communities and hence be part of the problem solving using the attained skills at University.
