The diploma programme is designed to provide students
with an extensive and in-depth understanding of business
practices. Its primary objective is to increase, enrich
and bank upon business knowledge acquired at certificate
level. The programme largely targets mid-career persons.
In other words it aims to meet the needs of people with
work experience in business, NGO's or government who wish
to enhance their skills in functional areas of
administration. Students that pursue this course can thus
relate theoretical knowledge gained at KWUST with
professional work experience and set-up. The programme
thus allows flexibility and dynamism. On successful
completion of the course, career advancement avenues will
be created for the diploma holders.
