Part-time degrees: A new age of studying

part-time BCom degree

Newsflash: getting a qualification doesn’t have to take up all of your time…

When you think of getting a degree, you’re probably picturing having to attend lectures all day, every day, with little free time to get work experience, raise a family or do the things you enjoy. Well, times have changed. A new wave of studies has emerged, making qualifications like a part-time BCom degree an accessible and popular option.

What makes a part-time BCom degree so well suited to today’s student population is that it allows people to transcend obstacles like working hours and family commitments in order to get a degree. This is something to be celebrated, as it gives those already in the working world a chance at furthering themselves through education.

This part-time degree provides an important framework in the fields of business management, strategic management and commerce. With course material structured in a way that it strengthens your aptitude for your chosen industry, you’ll be making your way up the career ladder in no time.

"If it is important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse." – Daniel Decker

Another reason to get excited about this degree is because not everyone was born to study in a traditional setting. The IIE Bachelor of Commerce - Distance Degree is geared towards those who prefer a combination of self-study in the comfort of their own home; with the support of an online tutor; plus the additional value of face-to-face sessions.
