Bachelor Business Science UCT

Bachelor Business Science UCT allow for a variety of specialisations to cater for both the interests of our students and the employment needs of our country. The first year curriculum is more or less common as all Commerce graduates need a solid academic foundation.

Bachelor Business Science Core Subjects


Information Systems


Business Law


Business Statistics or

Mathematical Statistics.

The degrees are offered in the standard form or as academic development programmes tailored for students who may have experienced gaps or disparities in their educational or life experience. The BBusSc is a four-year qualification, and the BCom is a three- year qualification.

The certificate will stipulate whether you have graduated BCom or BBusSc and the area of specialisation. All BBuSc students also take courses in the functional areas of Finance, Marketing and People Management. In their final year, students take a course in Business Strategy that integrates all the courses covered in the previous years of study. This course also includes exposure to entrepreneurship, recognising that many students will ultimately run their own businesses.

Education Development Unit

The Education Development Unit (EDU) is focused on enhancing the teaching and learning environment in the Commerce Faculty. Academic Development (AD) is situated in the EDU and is an equity programme. It has been designed to enable students to complete Commerce degrees over either a standard or extended period offering a range of additional interventions. The duration of the degree will be determined by Commerce Faculty admission requirements. The same exit standards certificate will be applied whatever the duration of the degree and the qualification (and thus the degree certificate) will be the same.

If you are offered a BCom or BBusSc place you will be eligible to complete any of the specialisations (provided you meet the entrance requirements for the specialisation).
