How to choose a Bachelor’s degree?
In today’s competitive world, a Bachelor’s degree is a must to be employed in a reputed organisation, be it in the private sector or in the public sector. This demand for degrees outside state universities has been exponentially increased with only 8% of A/L students having seats in state universities.
There are many different kind of degree awarding institutions in Sri Lanka today. Amongst these are unscrupulous institutions which award bogus or fake degrees or claim dubious ranking. A Google search could provide many insights into degree ‘mills’ which offer low cost Degree certificates & transcripts.
When embarking on any Degree, a prospective student must establish without a doubt the credentials of the awarding institution and its academic reputation. The esteem & admiration, recognition & respect for a qualification are derived from the awarding institution. The subject coverage, duration of study and depth in learning content are ingredients that make a difference between a respected degree and an ordinary one.
A Bachelor’s Degree course of studies take a minimum of 3 years. A typical Business and Management degree content covers all aspects of management including insights into functional areas in an organisation. Studying a variety of business and management topics provide a broad spectrum of organisational knowledge. This learning will enable a young person to develop competencies required in different functions. The breadth of knowledge in a Business Management Degree undoubtedly provides versatility to enable young graduates to be employed in any function or division in an organisation.
Whilst the entire Degree programme will take 36 months, students are required to successfully complete 15 modules during the first 2 years. On completion of this segment, students will be awarded Pearson Assured International Diploma in Business and Management and thereafter progress to the Final Year for the award of the Bachelor’s Degree (BA – Honours) in Business and Management from University of Northampton.
