Pursuing Computer Applications and Business Administration at undergraduate level is different from single honours degrees because students are required to think and analyse in a variety of different ways: inductively and deductively, applying the disciplines of economics, sociology, political studies, mathematics, higher algebra, statistics, operation research, matrix analysis, computer applications, law and possibly a language to a complex field of activity. Single discipline students are not exposed to this type of challenge.
A well designed, well taught computer and management course, tailored for able students, is demanding, stimulating and practical since it develops
different ways of thinking, analyzing, deciding and communicating appropriate to the rapidly changing technology and business environment. This is achieved by a combination of what is taught and how it is taught; or better, a concern with how the learning happens.
Employers find the BBA and BCA degree attractive because it combines an academic education which stresses on critical thinking and the application of computer and management related ideas, the opportunity to gain work experience and the development of transferable skills in areas such as team working, leadership and communication.
