The School of Business strives to empower BBA students with both professional academic knowledge and practical skills. BBA students must satisfy the following requirements for graduation.
Self e-Learning BBA Graduation Requirement from 2023/24 cohort onwards
With technology changing business models and jobs, the pursuit of lifelong learning is no longer an option, but an imperative. Business students need to continually upskill to remain competitive in the job market. In view of this, the BBA Programme is launching a self e-Learning graduation requirement to advocate learning autonomy and meet the demand for fast-changing digital skills.
Self e-Learning allows students to learn at your pace with full control. The flexibility increases the motivation, deepens the learning (you can revisit or pause anytime) and improves time management (you can attend anytime and on a mobile device), leading to a fulfilling learning experience.
All students must complete a minimum of 40 hours courses on the LinkedIn Learning by the 2nd semester of their Year 4 studies to be qualified for graduation. Otherwise, their graduation may be deferred. The new requirement will be effective and applied to all BBA students of 2023/24 cohort and onwards.
For details, please check the Guidelines on Self e-Learning Graduation Requirement.
