In addition to attending lectures you will be expected to spend time preparing for class and/or tests and exams, conducting your own research and working on assignments. The IIE Diploma in Commerce in Business Management mainly focuses on developing finance and management.
These skills are supported by appropriate knowledge elements identified by industry as critical for graduates to inform the background against which they will be required to function successfully in a business environment. Support modules include economics and marketing which will assist students in mastering the discipline holistically.
Furthermore, the business environment consists of a variety of internal and external variables that should be investigated to ensure a balanced business context that addresses the key aspects of the business. Furthermore, the first‐year accounting modules will provide a strong foundation upon which more comprehensive knowledge and applied competencies will be demonstrated in the Financial Management modules of the second and third years.
