PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

The intention of the Bachelor of Business Administration is to promote the development of knowledge and skills that are required in all sub-sectors of management; to release the potential of people; and to provide opportunities for people to move up the value chain and between the different sectors of the economy.

The Bachelor of Business Administration should produce knowledgeable, intellectually skilled individuals who are able to contribute to improved productivity and efficiency within the organisation. It should provide the means for current individuals in the general man-agement field to receive recognition of prior learning and to upgrade their skills and knowledge base.

The qualification is structured in such a way that it exposes individuals to a set of core competences to give a broad understanding of general and public management and the electives, which will allow for a specific competence in management. It will also promote the notion of life-long learning.

Rationale:

The Management Context:

Investing in education is critical to economic and social development in Africa, especially in providing Black individuals with greater opportunities for personal and collective advance-ment. The Education White Paper as published in the Government Gazette (15 August 1997) is very clear with regard to the importance of training effective managers, especially with the view of addressing the imbalances of the past, the following is one of a number of similar quotes from the document:
  • "Production, acquisition and application of new knowledge: National growth and competi-tiveness is dependent on continuous technological improvement and innovation, driven by a well-organised, vibrant research and development system which integrates the research and training capacity of higher education with the needs of industry and of social recon-struction".

    There is also a clearly defined goal to further the development of managers and manage-ment on national level.

    On a regional level, a very small number of accredited higher educational institution offering a similar programme through the medium of distance learning. This accentuates the need for accessible training in management at this level.

    The Distance Learning Concept:

    In 1994, the African National Congress (ANC) document: A Policy Framework for Education and Training outlined a vision of a future 'well-designed and quality distance education system based on the principles of open learning' (ANC, 1994:78) that would contribute to increased access to South Africa's newly enfranchised majority, as well as provide oppor-tunities for redress.

    Echoing the sentiments of the 1995 White Paper, White Paper 3: A Programme for the Transformation of Higher Education (DoE, 1997) endorsed the notion that distance educa-tion and on-campus resource-based learning have a crucial role to play in addressing the challenges of expanding access, diversifying the body of learners, being responsive to the needs of non-traditional learners, for example, those already in employment or who need to earn an income in order to meet study costs, and enhancing quality within the context of limited resources (DoE, 1997:26).

    (Direct) Role of the Bachelor of Business Administration:

    This qualification recognises the skills and knowledge expected of stakeholders or indi-viduals seeking positions such as leaders, middle-and top level managers in the private and public sector.

    Holders of this qualification may be responsible for managing people, resources, and/or projects, including the management of human resources, public relations, advertising, promotions, portfolios, projects, etc. The flexible structure of the qualification enables indi-viduals and organisations to select outcomes that meet the diverse roles and contexts re-quired by a wide range of industries and the public sector.

    The Bachelor of Business Administration will provide a broad framework of knowledge and skills needed in the industry and public sector and essential to progress along a career path for learners who wish to extend their range of skills and knowledge of the industry and public sector so that they can become knowledgeable workers and/or practitioners in manage-ment.

    The Bachelor of Business Administration allows the learner to work towards a nationally recognised whole qualification. The qualification will allow both those in formal education and those already employed in organisations access, due to its flexibility. It aims to develop individuals who are informed and skilled in management.

    The qualification has building blocks that can be developed further and will lead to a more defined management career path at National Second Degree level. It also focuses on the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes required to progress further. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners will be competent in:
  • Communication at NQF Level 4.
  • Mathematical Literacy at NQF Level 4.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    This qualification can be achieved wholly or in part through recognition of prior learning in terms of the criteria laid out.

    Evidence can be presented in a variety of forms, including international or previous local qualifications, reports, testimonials mentioning functions performed, work records, portfolios, videos of practice and performance records.

    All such evidence should be judged according to the general principles of assessment de-scribed in the note for assessors under Criteria for Registration of Assessors.

    Access to the qualification:

    University admissions policy generally requires that to register for degree study at a public university in South Africa a learner needs to be in possession of a Senior Certificate with a matriculation endorsement, a certificate of complete or conditional matriculation exemption, or needs to be awarded graduate status. The ministerially approved regulations published in terms of the provisions of Section 74 of the Higher Education Act, as amended, set out the criteria and rules under which the various types of certificates of endorsement; complete and conditional exemption may be granted.

    Integrated Assessment:

    The integrated assessment has the following characteristics:
  • It assesses the extent to which entry-level managers can manage competently and effectively in South African organisations.
  • It measures the extent to which learners have integrated the roles and the knowledge and skills delivered through the different courses/modules that make up the programme.
  • It assesses the five roles in General Management and its application in a chosen specialist stream.
  • It measures applied competence. In other words, it assesses whether learners are able to integrate the ability to perform important managerial actions competently (a practical com-petence), understand the theoretical basis for these actions (foundational competence), and reflect on and make changes to managerial practices (reflexive competence).

    The assessment criteria and evidence requirements are as follows:
  • In a practical teaching and learning situation, a simulated situation, or a situation that combines the practical, the simulated and the written, the learner will:
    > Generate, explore and consider options for appropriate action.
    > Identify the most appropriate course of action in relation to the particular context, topic, learner group, level of learning and resources available.
    > Explain the reasons for that particular selection as well as what was taken into account in making the selection.
    > Perform the identified action, while continuously monitoring and adapting performance as required.
    > Explain the reasons for the performance.
    > Evaluate his/her performance and identify areas for improvement.
    > Reflect on the learning and performance.
    > Develop a plan or strategy for future action which reflects an integration of what has been learnt through reflection. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The Bachelor in Business Administration is a well-known and widely available international qualification. It generally ranges from a three-year to a four year qualification. Most of these qualifications are very flexible in their choice of modules or subjects, presumably as a result of the broad field of management that needs to be addressed to develop general business administration skills. Almost all of the BBA's that were researched cover most of the im-portant functions of management. Internationally, the Bachelor of Business Administration is compated with BBA's from:
  • Southern Cross University (SCU) (Australia):

    SCU is a public university and received the Royal Assent on 9th November, 1993. The University was established 1st January 1994 and is known for its progressive and innovative degree programmes.

    The SCU Bachelor of Business Administration comparable in duration and in terms of mode of delivery: It is a three-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) course offered on-campus, by external mode or by a combination of both modes.

    The programme mix also show very significant similarities to the South African qualification, for example: Development of human resources; interpersonal communication; group work; dealing with conflict; staff development and training; industrial relations; organisational communication; staff selection and performance management; managing change; supervi-sion and teamwork; workplace learning; human resource management; contemporary is-sues in accounting theory; management accounting; financial information for decision making, etc.
  • European University (EU) (European Union):

    The EU is a cross-border European University recognised by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science in The Netherlands, the Generalitat of Catalonia (Spain), the Ministry of Education, Portugal, and is United Nations Educational, Scientific and cultural Organisa-tion (UNESCO) chairholder for entrepreneurship and international business management.

    The EU BBA is comparable in terms of duration (three years).

    The programme mix also show very significant similarities to the South African qualification, for example: Foundations of Business Management; Writing Communication Skills; Principles of Accounting; Micro Economics; Business and Society; Oral Communication Skills; Intermediate Accounting; Elementary Statistics; Macro Economics; Business Finance I; Marketing Management; Human Resources Management; Cross-Cultural Business Is-sues; Financial Statement Analysis; Strategic Marketing; Consumer Behaviour; Marketing Research, and more.
  • Summary of Findings:

    The BBA programme exists in many forms and permutations. The qualifications tend to share three characteristics: They are:
  • Degree programmes that may be offered internationally as a three or four year qualification.
  • Share common outcomes over the spectrum of management.
  • Flexible programmes that allow for subject choice. 

  • ARTICULATION OPTIONS 
    The qualification should provide vertical and horizontal external articulation possibilities with all public and private higher education institutions that offer comparable studies at NQF Level 07.

    In addition, the qualification addresses all of the skills, methodologies and techniques re-quired for the practice of management services, according to the Southern Africa Institute of Management Services. Project management is also in line with the guidelines of Project Management South Africa and Human Resources with the Institute of People Management. Also considered are the future requirements of the IPFA (Institute for Public Finance and Auditing), the IMFO (Institute for Municipal Finance Officers) and the ILGM (Institute for Local Government Management). The guidelines of relevant Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and registered unit standards are incorporated.
