BCom Courses in South Africa

6 Comments | Published by: Milpark

A variety of BCom courses are offered by business schools and tertiary institutions in South Africa. Finding course options and tertiary institutions won’t be a challenge – but choosing the institution which offers the right BCom course and major subject/s that perfectly suits you is a different story. In South Africa, there are eleven traditional universities, six comprehensive universities and six more universities of technology plus another fifteen private colleges and universities. In total, there are about thirty BCom majors to choose from.

Choosing the right BCom Course in South Africa

Now that we have established that you do have options, choosing the right BCom for you boils down to research, financial considerations and self-reflection. There are many subjects that form part of a BCom degree, for example: information systems, economics, industrial psychology, accounting, marketing, maths, risk management, stats and taxation. Don’t be intimidated by these subject names; they should excite you because the knowledge you will gain will prepare you for your career. Remember that class attendance and staying on track as a distance learner are two important ingredients for success in your studies.
The following are important considerations when choosing a BCom course in South Africa:
  • Your interests and strengths 
  • The subjects you find most interesting 
  • How the qualification and subjects would help in your chosen career 
  • Equivalence to other BCom degrees: whether the qualification offering is similar (not the same) to those offered at other institutions
