UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION INTRODUCTION OF NEW PROGRAMMES 2007 The department introduced new Bachelor programmes in 2007. Old programmes were phased out with effect from 2007. The first year of old programmes was no longer offered in 2007 and the second year of old programmes was no longer offered in 2008. The third year was no longer offerred in 2009 and the fourth year was no longer offered in 2010. Students are required to transition to the new programmes as per the transition rules. Special Academic Regulations Progression Rule 1: There was a complete switch to the new curriculum as from 2007 for only the new intake [first year students], and from there onward the rest of the new Bachelor curricula would be systematically phased in while the old B-Tech programme is systematically phased out; with the year 2012 being the final date for the award of the B-Tech degree. Progression Rule 2: A student shall not be allowed to take a higher level course above his/ her current level of study even if the course in question has no prerequisite, and if such courses cannot be offered to the student on genuine academic grounds. Rules for the Award of the National Cerificate in Business Studies The new National Certificate in Business Studies shall be awarded to students only after successful completion and credit-passes for all common Business Management courses in the first year plus Computer User Skills and Principles of Economics 1A & 1B in the second year. General Transition Rules The general transition rules for all programmes are as follows: 1. All new enrolments as from 2007 start with the new curricula. 2. All third year students in 2008 who failed (i.e. less than 50 % of credits obtained) must switch to the new curricula in 2009. 3. All third year students in 2008 who have passed may continue with the old curricula, but if such students should fail any of the courses in the old curricula, such failed courses in the old curricula will only be offered with new syllabi and students must complete the new courses. 4. The last date for completion of the old curricula is 2012, after which the students on the old curricula must automatically switch to the new curricula and make up all outstanding courses from the new curricula. 5. Students who do not progress every year must switch to the new curricula and make up all outstanding courses from the new curricula. 6. Third and Fourth Year students in 2009 had the choice to switch to the new curricula and were advised accordingly as to which courses to make-up from the new curricula. 7.

Students who fail any of the subjects/courses in the old curriculum will be provided with two opportunities to pass the failed courses. After first and second opportunities, such failed courses in the old programme will only be offered on the new syllabi effective from January 2011. Students who were in their 1st year in 2011 wew allowed to transition to the new programme in 2011, but are required to make up specific deficiencies in accordance with the detailed requirements for the new curriculum, including the completion of Institutional Core courses. All other students currently registered for the 4-year Bachelor of Human Resources Management (to be phased out), who opt to change registration to the new Bachelor of Human Resources Management, will be granted credits on a course-by-course basis and will be required to complete institutional core courses and other course requirements based on the new curriculum. Students will be advised accordingly as to which courses to make-up based on the new curriculum. The deadline for phasing out of the old 4-year Bachelor of Human Resources Management curriculum is 2013, after which students must automatically switch to the new programme and make up for all outstanding courses/subjects based on the requirements of the new curriculum. If a student, who is registered on the 4-year Bachelor of Human Resources Management degree (to be phased out), fails more than half the work load in any particular year his/ her registration will automatically be changed to the new programme.

Work Integrated Learning Structure and Management Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is the process of integrating work experiences with learning in a way traditional education cannot do. WIL shall be provided for in the 3rd year of the Bachelor of Human Resources Management programme. Only 3rd year students will be allowed to register for WIL. It provides students with opportunities to: Execute tasks associated with Human Resources Management rather than just reading them. It also allows students to assess their interests in human resources management. Network with professionals and build relationships that can assist students in future endeavours while providing a professional environment. Have access to hiring companies for full time positions after graduation once good working relationships have been established. Interact with people from diverse backgrounds and develop interpersonal skills that are not possible in a classroom environment.

WIL is important in improving the Polytechnic graduate characteristics to meet industry needs that are in line with the Polytechnic vision, strategic plan and the requirements of the Polytechnic Curriculum Model. It offers opportunity for innovation and creativity when students are afforded the opportunity to experiment what they learn in class in the work place, i.e. practice learnt competencies. Students can also learn new things in the work place which they bring to the classroom. Lecturers in turn are able to keep abreast with professional developments in the field of Human Resources Management as a result of this cooperation. The cooperation with industry further provides opportunities for research and development needed for national economic development. Industry will benefit from these activities by getting market-related information and development. Knowledge is easily managed when the source of education and development interact with users i.e. industry. As such knowledge management is important for national competitiveness.

Admission Requirements Candidates may be admitted to this programme if they meet the General Admission Requirements of the Polytechnic of Namibia (GI 2.1 in Part 1 of the Polytechnic Yearbook). Mature Age candidates will be considered provided they meet the requirements and pass the mature age entrance examinations as required by the Polytechnic of Namibia (GI 2.2 in Part 1 of the Polytechnic Yearbook). Articulation Arrangements Transfer of credits will be dealt with according to the Polytechnics regulations on Recognition of Prior Learning. These provide for course-by-course credits as well as credit transfer by volume under certain academic conditions. Maximum credit that can be granted is 50 % of the credits for a qualification. Students with the old National Diploma in Information Administration will obtain credit for the following courses, if they opt to register for the Bachelor degree:

Assessment strategies Students will be assessed through continuous and summative assessment. These assessments will focus on the achievement of qualification outcomes and take the form of problem-solving exercises, individual/group assignments and presentations, case studies, report writing, practical application of skills and competencies, tutorials, practical projects and questioning 30

(tests and/or examinations). The use of validating end of term assessments may be minimised in order to free students intellectual capacity for broader cognitive development. Assessment by means of tests and/or examinations will, therefore, be restricted to situations where it is necessary to establish that a previous specific performance can be repeated or a specific skill can be transferred. In accordance with Polytechnic policy on diversified continuous assessment, each course will have a minimum of six assessment events. Courses that are assessed using a combination of continuous assessment and a final end-of-term examination must have at least three assessments. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) will be assessed on the assignment and the presentation thereof which is stipulated in the Work Integrated Learning Manual and is based on the syllabus as applied in the working situation in which the student is placed. The mentors mark of the students performance will also be taken into consideration. Transition Arrangements The current four-year Bachelor of Office Management and Technology (old curriculum) will be phased out systematically until 2016 with minimal disruption to existing students learning progression. The last intake of 1st year students for the existing programme (old curriculum) was in January 2011. Students will only be allowed to register for the 4th year of the current programme until January 2014 to ensure they have sufficient time to complete the programme by 2016. Students who are registered in 2011 for the 1st year of the current programme (old curriculum), and who fail more than 50% of the courses at the end of the year, will be required to change their registration to the new programme and will be granted credits on a course-by-course basis in accordance with information in Table 1 below. The revised three-year Bachelor of Office Management and Technology (new curriculum) takes effect from January 2012 and will be completely phased in by 2014. Courses will only be offered based on the new/revised syllabi in 2012 (1st year), 2013 (2nd year) and 2014 (3rd year). Students who are admitted into the examination for courses on the old curriculum will be granted only two opportunities to pass such courses (there will be no retention of semester marks). Students who fail any of the courses on the old curriculum will be required to repeat such failed courses based on the syllabi of new/revised corresponding courses. Please refer to Table 2, below, for detailed information on the new/revised corresponding courses to be done if courses on the old curriculum are failed. The deadline for complete phasing out of the existing four-year Bachelor of Office Management and Technology (old curriculum) is 2016 after which students must automatically switch to the new programme and fulfil all requirements based in the new curriculum.

Special Arrangements for Work Integrated Learning Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is incorporated in the 6th semester, following the project management course completed in the 5th semester. The work integrated learning requires students to undertake a work/industry related project to ensure that practical experience is gained by a student on completion of the programme. The work integrated learning experience and resultant project comprises of 36 credits (360 notional hours) of the total programme. Students with assistance from the academic supervisor will be required through-out the 5th semester to identify a placement in industry. The student will then sign an agreement provided by the academic supervisor with the organisation that has approved the placement, and assigned an industry supervisor to the student. The agreement will include the job description of the student, together with a project plan compiled by the student that will count towards the final mark of WIL. Once the project plan has been approved by the academic supervisor, the work-integrated learning can commence. The work-integrated learning process through-out the 6th semester should be documented and a short report should be given to the academic supervisor on a 2 weekly basis, after approval by the industry supervisor. The time-period for the experiential learning will span over 16 weeks, to ensure the students fulfil their requirements of 360 hours. The student will be required to compile a final report on all activities and project during the WIL process, and produce it to the academic supervisor at the end of the semester that will count towards the final mark of WIL. A presentation will be required by student at the end of the semester that will count towards the final mark of WIL.

51

The final mark of the student will be calculated according to the following: Project Plan: 10% 2 Week Reports: 10% Final Report: 70% (60% Academic Supervisor, 40% Industry Supervisor) Presentation: 10% The role of the student is to undergo the training, as broadly specified by the academic department and offered by the company.

POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMMES DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION POSTGRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN ICT POLICY AND REGULATION Description The aim of this multi-disciplinary certificate programme is to address a skills gap in Namibias ICT sector.

The programme will be offered in the form of six one-week modules spread over one year, and will be rounded off with a research project. Each module is taught in one week in five 4-hour part-time sessions to allow professionals working in industry and government to participate. Each module is followed by a test. The certificate is awarded after passing all six modules with a mark of at least 50% and submitting a research project, which likewise requires a minimum mark of 50%. The research project is the equivalent of 20% of a Master thesis. Modules cannot be failed more than two times. The maximum time any student can be registered for the programme is 4 years. Students are expected to be present during all contact hours.

One or more required readings will be provided for each session of each module. These are printed out and included in the programme pack. Participants are expected to complete those readings required for each session in advance, as the lecturer will assume familiarity with their content. Lecturers, who use teaching aids or provide additional material, will distribute these notes as they become available. These notes should be added to the programme file and included as part of the programme materials. It is assumed that for every 1 hour in the classroom, 20 in total per module, participants will need to spend approximately 4 additional hours in preparation. This includes reading and writing assignments. There may be tasks to prepare for specific sessions, which will assist the student to work through the conceptual and theoretical understandings in each of the readings and begin to apply these to cases and issues. Students should read through each session outline carefully to ensure that there are no mishaps. Equivalences and Articulation with other Programmes Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the programme there are neither equivalences nor direct articulations to other existing programmes. In case at a later stage a Masters Programme in ICT Policy and Regulation should be established, the modules of the Postgraduate Executive Certificate should be considered for crediting.

Design and implement effective learning programmes in diverse fields of human resources management Transition Arrangements This is a new programme that does not replace any existing programme(s). The new programme takes effect from January 2012. The existing 4-year Bachelor of Human Resources Management degree will be phased out systematically until 2013 with minimal disruption to existing students learning progression. Students who are registered for the fourth year of the Bachelor of Human Resources Management will be allowed to transfer to the new Honours degree from 2012 onwards provided they have completed the current National Diploma and attained at least 65% in the core human resources management courses. Such students run the risk of losing credits and will, therefore, be encouraged to complete the Bachelor of Human Resources Management instead. Also, students who opt to transition to the new Honours degree will be required to complete a Mini-Thesis based on a new research topic. Only the new courses will be offered from January 2012 and students in the fourth-year of the out-phasing Bachelor of Human Resources Management programme will, therefore, be required to complete outstanding courses based on the new syllabi. Requirements for Qualification Award In addition to meeting all administrative, financial, and high moral/integrity requirements as spelt out in the Institutions Prospectus, the Bachelor of Human Resources Management Honours will be awarded to students credited with the total 120 credits or above.
