INTRODUCTION

On the threshold of being an exclusive Educational Institute by offering courses from Pre-School to Higher Secondary, Podar International School has now introduced yet another programme through the Podar World College which will now also deliver programmes offered by EDEXCEL (UK). Edexcel was formed by the merger of the Business & Technology Education Council (BTEC) and the University of London Examinations & Assessment Council. Edexcel is regulated by the Qualification and Curriculum Authority, a body recognised by the Ministry of Education, UK.

Edexcel, a Pearson company, is the UK's largest awarding body. Edexcel offers academic and vocational qualifications and testing to more than 25,000 schools, colleges, employers and other places of learning in the UK and in over 100 countries worldwide.

Podar along with Edexcel is slated to offer a wide variety of Under Graduation programmes; to initialize this process Podar has introduced BA honors in Business management (BBA).

The course covers the core business skills which are essential to be effective in today's work environment. BBA places much emphasis on the development of practical skills which can be applied in your future working life.

An important element of the BBA course is the way we combine your learning and assessment. You will attend formal lectures during most of your units, but there is also a great deal of emphasis upon you being able to practice what you have learnt, and develop your practical skills. Much of your learning will be through case studies, videos, role play, group work and student-led seminars.

For most of the undergraduate programmes, which are 3 years in duration, we offer a unique structure. The structure entails awarding the vocational qualifications offered by EDEXCEL, these being the Higher National Certificate (HNC) and Higher National Diploma (HND). The HNC and HND can be regarded as equivalent to Bachelors Degree Year 1 and Year 2 respectively. Thus, upon successful completion of the HND, students can 'top-up' to the final year of a Bachelors Degree.

Year 1 : BTEC- HNC [Higher National Certificate in Business] is an 8 unit qualification of which 4 units are compulsory and 4 are from the optional units.
