Baccalaureate Program at Greenwich
Aug 28 - Sep 03, 2000
A firmly established new program
Greenwich University has for some time now been running a unique and
highly successful program aimed at catering for matric students wishing to pursue a career
in business management related areas.
Conscious of the deteriorating quality of education throughout the
country and the wide gulf between intermediate students and the requirements for a
demanding undergraduate program, Greenwich has designed a completely fresh program for
matric students. Based on the assumption that all students pursuing business programs need
a firm base in language, mathematics and computers the program concentrates on these
Covering a period of five semesters of one and a half years in total
all matric students enter a modular controlled course. In this all semesters have English
courses leading to compulsory entry into TOEFL without which a student may not continue
into the undergraduate program. Maths is studied for three semesters and computer studies
Apart from the emphasis on "core" subject the program
includes, Islamic studies, biology, Pakistan studies, sociology, geography, economics,
psychology, accounts, commerce, ethics, business management and international relations.
Thus students arrive at the start of an undergraduate program with a broad spread of
knowledge enabling them to cope more effectively with higher studies. Furthermore there is
an important feeling of continuity as this program leads into the undergraduate and
graduate programs without break.
A unique feature of this baccalaureate program is a built in "fast
track" whereby students who do exceptionally well in a course may accelerate through
the program with advanced credit.
There is therefore an incentive for talent and also provision to place
students in advanced courses if they enter with qualifications that justify acceleration.
Whilst the program is intended for students who are destined to move on
into advanced programs at Greenwich, students leaving at the end of the baccalaureate
courses will be well prepared and qualified for entry into other centres of learning.
All students completing the five semester program of 25 courses will be
awarded a baccalaureate degree of Greenwich University, a fully accredited degree awarding
The current Baccalaureate degree program at Greenwich University is
proving to be most attractive to students who have passed matric and who are ambitious and
foresighted resolved to structure their future on a foundation of practical achievement in
the light of market demands.
