Programme Structure

The rationale of this program is to offer a course that prepares business majors at a bachelor degree level who intend to pursue careers in Banking and Finance and progress their studies towards Masters and PhD degrees. We strategically have selected private sector and entrepreneurial business as the target hiring firms.

The banking thread of the program is less entrepreneurial in nature. I.e. we would expect entrepreneurs to be interested in the finance thread and those who wish to work for small to large entities; particularly banks, investment companies, mutual houses and lending institutions to be more interested in Banking. However, students are not bound by this preconception. For example, banking would be a worthwhile thread for an entrepreneur who intends to build a micro-lending company.

In either context they will be prepared to quickly learn and adapt to their chosen work.

All business graduates of HCC are expected to also be technology literate, know how to apply and manage technology and work with IT professionals.

All graduates of HCC are also expected to understand how to help their communities. The program provides several courses that help with students learn the values that should drive their actions and they have via the community development courses tools that will help them begin to contribute.

*The Mandatory Business Internship will be conducted during the prior summer months but grades reflected in this the final semester. The internship may be conducted as an entrepreneurial activity with department head approval (after acceptance by the HCC Incubator review team) when a student or group of students have developed a robust start up opportunity which can be explored in the HCC Incubator. Non-profit, NGO and community entity work will also be considered as valid options. The student should work with faculty during semester 4.1 to identify the approved assignment.
The rationale of this program is to offer a course that prepares business majors at a bachelor degree level who intend to pursue careers in Human Resource Management, Relationship Management or who intend to pursue professional status and / or progress their studies towards Masters and PhD degrees. We strategically have selected both public and private sector and entrepreneurial business as the target hiring firms. In either context they will be prepared to help with Human Resource requirements, management and have necessary background to begin to work in personnel issues. This course provides the student an opportunity to explore contemporary issues in HR. The professor will select topics and will also solicit topics from students when they register and also in the initial class sessions for future development. A preference for Case Studies and dialog and debate should be the teaching vehicles. Students should prepare discussion outlines (briefs) to present and will take a position in a debate to be conducted in class which will be followed by dialog. The Core Value issues of HCC and a Christian Worldview should both be highlighted in all discussions so the student practice working from these frameworks. All business graduates of HCC are expected to also be technology literate, know how to apply and manage technology and work with IT professionals in varied organisations. All graduates of HCC are also expected to understand how to help their communities. The program provides several courses that help with students learn the values that should drive their actions.

Elective Choices

The rationale of this program is to offer a course that is complimentary to the BSc I.T curriculum. However, it does not prepare the student for in-depth systems analysis, design & implementation nor does it prepare the student to work in network management (both are the aim of the BSc I.T curriculum of HCC). The aim of this course is to prepare business majors to work with BSc I.T departments or inside BSc I.T departments but in different areas. In either context they will be prepared to help with business requirements, process issues, and change issue management. They will understand the language of analysis, design & implementation. They will be able to work with project management and be part of a Project management Office (PMO). They could and often interface between BSc I.T and business units to improve the probability of systems meeting business need in a timely manner. They can be good candidates on BSc I.T Audit teams as they provide the core competence of BSc I.T management in audit teams that are often weak in BSc I.T skills, nomenclature and implications. Consequently, the courses focus on management, analysis, design, security, project management, decision support, enterprise architecture and e-commerce with the aim of enabling students to help in specifications, business process specification and testing, audit, etc. All graduates of HCC are also expected to understand how to help their communities. The program provides several courses that help with students learn the values that should drive their actions and they have via the community development courses tools that will help them begin to contribute.
