Business administration courses give you access to a broad field of options. This will allow you to choose what sort of area or industry you’d most like to work in. Areas include retail, medical, education, technology and IT, advertising, marketing, mining, arts, entertainment, legal and more!

You’ll be in demand

Why? This is simply because every single business the world over needs some sort of administrative support, like a personal assistant, to help keep it afloat. This means you’ll have little trouble finding a job that excites you.

There’s a lot of flexibility

With many admin roles, there are both full and part-time opportunities available to you. There are also a few temp positions or contract-based roles to keep you going until you find a job that really makes you tick. These are great if you’re still studying, or a little unsure of exactly where you’d like to be working.

Build strong organisational skills

"The course was so practical, I feel like I have the ability to go out and manage a project. It's not all theory that I have no clue how to apply. It was a privilege to learn from Bobby Keller at The IIE's Business School at Varsity College Pretoria. He has a lifetime of experience to share."
