The Faculty of Management Sciences programmes are designed to provide the students with the main theoretical concepts and practical applications that can be used in today's dynamic business environment. To achieve this, the faculty depends on various methods of delivery and selects the most appropriate assessment methodology to ensure the students' ability to demonstrate the required learning outcomes of their programme of study. Moreover, there is continuous development of the programmes, the learning material, and the teaching methodology to enhance the standard or calibre of our graduates.
To graduate, you need to pass all the required modules of your chosen programme which are divided into four levels namely levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. The first 16 modules are common in all the four programmes. These 16 modules will introduce you to various areas of knowledge that are necessary to support your understanding of higher level modules, and it is during studying these modules that you will get an insight into the different management disciplines to enable you to declare your major of choice.
The Faculty of Management Sciences offers four programmes:

As you progress from one level to another, you need to develop your learning abilities so that by the end of level four, you will have achieved the outcomes of the programme. Finally, the aim is that you as a student enhance your judgment, critical analysis, and application of knowledge. You also need to achieve a point where you become an independent learner, and whenever you need to know more about an area you could independently search and guide yourself.
Furthermore, our aim is to enhance your employability by improving your team-working, communication, presentation skills, and acquire awareness of the rapidly changing dynamic business environment where flexibility, innovation, and adaptability are a must.
