Bachelor of Commerce in Management (Double Major)

According to published sources, management can be defined as a set of activities directed at an organization’s resources (Human, Financial, Physical and Information) with the aim of achieving organisational goals efficiently and effectively.

At the heart of every organisation, you will find a manager who is responsible for combining and coordinating resources to achieve the organisation’s goals. This is not an easy task given the dynamics of an evolving business environment coupled with the fact that a manager cannot control external factors such as the economy, the legal-political environment and the changing pace of technological development.

However, a manager has at his/her disposal, the ability to provide direction for his members of staff, influence the organisation’s corporate culture and ultimately a host of stakeholders.

By keeping a good ear on the ground to sharpen his/her business skills and anticipate change, a good manager may be able to predict business trends and make the necessary adjustments to protect the long-term interest of the organisation.

In certain cases, a manager may be forced to work in an international environment, and given such challenges, may require being fluent in other international languages (say French and German) and a deeper understanding of the cultural context of new markets.

In a nutshell, by taking the necessary steps to study management, you will be exposing yourself to a world without borders where the business community is the catalyst for any thriving economy.
