The design of the Bachelor of Business (Marketing) ensures that students receive a broad education in business with a specific focus in marketing. The broad business course objectives are covered by twelve (12) compulsory business core Units. The discipline specific course objectives associated with marketing provide students with an in-depth study of marketing (vis-à-vis major). This learning is scaffolded and built through a sequence of eight (8) compulsory Marketing Units that build student’s understanding, skills and application of marketing knowledge. This means a graduate will complete at least nine (9) Marketing Units in the degree (8 major Units plus Marketing Fundamentals Unit in the business core). Students may undertake a further two (2) Marketing Units as electives.
The degree comprises twenty-four (24) Units; twelve (12) core Units, plus eight (8) in the Marketing major plus four (4) electives.
Each unit in the course will have 12 weeks of classes, the semester will also include a oneweek mid- semester teaching break and a one-week Swat-Vac period and an end of semester examination week, reflecting a 15-week semester. In contrast to the current trend of speeding up the learning process. Students are expected to spend approximately 10 hours of study time per week (3 hours of face-to-face classes and 7 hours of independent study and assessment tasks) per Unit (it is estimated that students should complete a minimum of 150 hours study per Unit, including the teaching period, mid semester break, swat-vac and the exam period over the semester.
A variety of assessment configurations and tasks are utilised in the Units that make up the MIHE Bachelor of Business (Marketing). These include class tests, oral presentations, video interviews, research and business report writing, group and individual tasks. Students will receive feedback throughout the semester that can help them to improve their academic performance. Each Unit has an early assessment task (weeks 3,4,5) to identify students at risk and to provide appropriate support. During the semester, assessment is distributed across the
weeks for Units scheduled in that semester and year of the course (e.g. year 1 semester 1) to avoid too many assignments being due at the same time.
