Programme Type : Full Time
Fees : Fees
Faculty : Commerce
Department : Accounting and Finance
The purpose of the qualification is to develop competencies in strategic management across all sectors of the economy. Business management is universal and the cornerstone for any business success. HRDC research showed that Botswana was lacking professional business managers and experts in areas of Strategic Organisational Design & Development, Strategic Marketing and Innovation, Strategic Financial Management, Global Business Strategy and Strategic planning. To date most companies in Botswana are relying on foreign consultant companies to formulate and spearhead their strategic plans. This clearly shows lack of home-grown skills to spearhead the strategic directions of the business. Furthermore the graduates shall have leadership and team membership skills needed for implementing and coordinating organisational activities and managing change. They will understand how global competitive environments are changing business practice as well as the ability to integrate business knowledge and management techniques to aid planning and control in a changing environment. They will be equipped with corporate business skills to promote a knowledge economy which Botswana aspires to be in 2036 and develop their survival strategies in this highly competitive global industry (NDP11, HRDS 2016).
