The programme produces graduates with the academic, intellectual and transversal skills to enhance their employability, ensure their capacity to remain competitive in an ever-advancing sector, and equip them for further study. The programme will provide graduates with the knowledge, skills and competence to operate effectively in the business environment, equipping them to question, analyse, synthesise and critically evaluate situation and context in seeking solutions to business problems. The programme comprises of 60 ects of modules which reflect the essential curriculum to prepare students for employment in leadership or management roles in a commercial enterprise. The programme utilises a carefully designed curriculum structure with modules focussed on specific disciplinary areas of significance to business practice and operations. These modules facilitate the acquisition of discipline specific knowledge, skill and competence along with the development of transversal skills. The programme will produce graduates equipped to enter organisations in graduate level positions or progress to further academic study at Masters level. An authentic assessment model is reflected in the programme assessment strategy. Summative assessment is a blend of integrated assessment and module specific assessment utilising both group and individual work, and the programme assessment strategy also features a capstone assessment. Formative assessment is integrated into module delivery through both in-class and independent study activities enabling students to self-assess and / or be assessed by faculty to determine their progress towards attainment of learning outcomes. Summative assessments also include a formative element with feedback provided to learners. The capstone Applied Business Practice module requires students to integrate the learning from the programme’s modules and apply this to a real-world business scenario or problem, provided with the support of the CCT Industry Engagement Forum. The programme is available as a full-time on-campus programme and a part-time programme delivered through blended learning using the college’s physical and virtual campus facilities. Teaching, learning and assessment is undertaken in a discipline-focused context. This will be supported by members of the CCT Industry Engagement Forum who will support the programme delivery, providing real-world and real-time business challenges and experiences, through guest lecturing, site / virtual visits, and providing business-initiated problems, case studies and scenarios to inform formative and summative assessment design.
