Bachelor of Business Computing

Computers have become very important tools in businesses. The computers are used to speed up processes, keep good track of data, manage business processes as well as planning for the growth of the businesses. Computer systems are now in the center of many successful businesses and other factors supplement them. To manage businesses well, there is a critical need for careful alignment of the correct computer systems as well as their good management and utilization. There are many programs currently that train ICT professionals as well as those that train Business professionals. However, less is done in getting professionals with skills to align the Computing skills in the business needs.  As such, it is highly possible to get ICT professionals with less business skills and vice versa which leads to optimal utilization of human resources by the businesses.

This program therefore seeks to address the existing skewed balance of ICT/Business skills among professionals so as to create professionals with all round knowledge in business operations in a computerized business environment.  The professionals are to enhance business efficiency and effectiveness hence competitiveness.
