About the BCom in Business Management
The Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) in Business Management is aimed at the development of managers who need to understand the importance of socio-economic transformation for South Africa. The BCom in Business Management is a foundational programme that will prepare future business leaders for the multi-faceted world of work as referred to above. This BCom in Business Management seeks to promote the development of knowledge, skills and capabilities required within varied management, administration and leadership contexts.

The programme focuses on the business leadership discipline posited against the overarching field of business management and administration. This takes cognisance of the complex inter-relationship of a number of elements that will contribute to, and enhance sustainability of business ventures, including the management of technology, the management of innovation and the management of people within a systems thinking framework. 

The qualification is thus structured in such a way that it introduces individuals to the core competencies needed to identify and leverage business opportunities including opportunities provided through social enterprises and establish practices that will enhance the viability of ventures. These competencies will include the latest in local and global trends in business management, administration and leadership within a business and or social enterprise environment. Persons who attain this qualification will be empowered to contribute to the personal, social and economic development of a community and or a country. 

The qualification is directed towards prospective individuals who intend to take up junior and middle management positions within both private and public business sector organisations and social enterprises.  The foundation of the curriculum is built on a combination of widely acknowledged Business Management disciplines such as general Business Management, Financial Accounting, Economics and Business Research with the option to develop a Business Leadership focus within a selected area of expertise, which is Creativity in Management in this instance.
About the Electives in Creativity in Management
Pursue any article regarding the most desired skills for the future and you will find that creativity consistently ranks within the top five skills.  Several authors may refer to aspects such as problem-solving or innovative thinking, however, these are a derivate from the much larger creativity umbrella.  Companies such as Toyota are preferring to employ people above machines in certain areas of their factories as humans can propose ideas for improvement that signifies the need for creative solutions to unique challenges.

One may contemplate and ask; “If the creative skill is so important, why was it not part of my upbringing?”  A possible answer to this question may be that in times where change is trending towards a greater need for such competencies in the workplace, education systems battle to keep up with adding such soft-skills to their curriculums.  Until now, creativity has been somewhat of a mysterious topic condemned to statements such as: “I simply wasn’t born creative”, or even more degrading, “I’m not artistic enough to be creative”.  These indifferent misconceptions are on the verge of being eliminated as more and more people come to realise that creativity is an entirely relevant topic and competence that can be acquired through learning and practising.
