WINDHOEK - Southern Business School (SBS) Namibia’s graduation ceremony and study week will take place in Windhoek this week.
A total of 270 graduates of different programmes and degrees are expected to be honoured and rewarded as a result of their hard work. In addition, on September 19 and 20, over 500 students are scheduled to attend the study week sessions.
“The students enrolled with SBS Namibia have not only grown in numbers, but we are seeing students pursuing consecutive degrees and courses. Starting off with certificates and diplomas and eventually enrolling in bachelor’s programmes as well with the school,” said Albin Jacobs, Director of the Southern Business School Namibia.
“The students graduating and receiving Masters Degrees, Bachelor Degrees (Honours), Certificates in Management as well as Advanced degrees sacrificed a lot to obtain these NQA-recognised qualifications.”
The graduating students will receive degrees and certificates in many different fields and sectors, including management, Advanced Diploma in management, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Policing Practice, Bachelor of Business Administration Honours, Bachelor of Policing Practice, honours and master’s degrees as well as students being rewarded for academic achievements for the respective qualifications.
During the same week the bi-annual SBS-Namibia study week is hosted in Windhoek.
“With Namibia being a large and sparsely populated country with only a small part of the population residing in Windhoek, the study week is a great session that adds value for all involved. These live sessions serve as an opportunity for students to come together to meet and learn from their lecturers and fellow students. Cases are discussed, face to face, project work is done networks are built and friendships forged,” said Jacobs.
“Southern Business School Namibia provides this study week with highly respected lecturers which benefits our students and adds an extra dimension to their distance-learning experience,” Jacobs added.
“These students embody all that is positive about distance education. They are securing a better life for themselves through education, while many hold down a full or part-time job at the same time. That is an incredibly powerful notion and one that we at SBS Namibia are extremely proud of. Distance education is a real and viable option when wanting to pursue tertiary education,” Jacobs concluded.
