    and Finance, Commercial Law and Economics.

    business skills: Business Studies, Cookery, Food & Beverage Service, Hospitality, Management, Marketing, Office Management, Tour Guiding and Tourism Studies.
 
The Faculty of Business and Entrepreneurship offers courses for the Commerce stream of the Foundation Certificate programme, a wide range of vocational certificate and diploma qualifications, plus Commerce undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. For students seeking careers in the tourism and hospitality industry, a one year Certificate programme and a two years Diploma programme are available to prepare the students to be part of the industry. Also offered to students who envision being office administrators or young entrepreneurs are, the two years Diploma programmes in Business and in Office Management.
 
For the non-vocational programmes, Academic pathways for future accountants, economists, general managers and marketing managers are offered through the Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) degree programme whereby students can undertake a major in any of the following disciplines: accounting, economics, management or marketing, and a minor in any of these disciplines or commercial law, or in any discipline from another faculty. Students who do well in the B.Com programme and achieve an average of 70% or better from the courses in their major, and have an interest in doing research are encouraged to do the B.Com Honours programme. The Faculty also offers the opportunity for graduates to return, later in their career, to study a different commerce discipline towards a graduate diploma.
