People, processes, profit. A career in Human Resources is the heartbeat of any company, corporate, government or self-owned business.

Why Choose the Bachelor of Commerce Programme?

The degree in BCom Human Resource Management is arguably one of the most preferred qualifications both locally and internationally. To pass, one needs to prove that one understands the key value adds that Human Resource Management brings to the table in an organisation, especially during this unforeseen and unpredictable labour market, and novelty in work culture and business environment. The purpose of the BCT’s BCom (Human Resource Management) degree, is to afford students with the quality education and skills required to be an efficient and effective Human Resource manager/officer, or for that matter, any manager that leads a team. The graduate will have the appropriate knowledge and skill set to successfully bridge the gap between the new skills requirement within the discipline and the demand for qualified experts that bank the new age skills as HR decision makers.
