WINDHOEK, SEPT. 19 – Southern Business School Namibia’s Graduation Ceremony and Study week will take place in Windhoek this week. A total of 270 graduates of different programmes and degrees will be honoured and rewarded as a result of their hard work. On the 19 and 20 September 2018 more than 500 students will 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. 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 students will receive degrees and certificates in many different fields and sectors that SBS Namibia offers 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 Masters 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 the capital. 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.
“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,” said Albin Jacobs, Director of SBS Namibia.
This Study Week in Windhoek provide distance education student with a sense of community, they are from all 14 regions, yet they are all linked through their desire to pursue tertiary education. The students whilst in Windhoek can meet with people they had chatted with online and through e-mails. As for meeting their lecturers, students see this as an opportunity to clarify and discuss those difficult areas of subjects.
Albin Jacobs, Director of the Southern Business School Namibia said about the students about graduate; “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.”
The graduation ceremony as well as the Study Week keep growing in size and scope and this is testament to the effectiveness and popularity of Distance Education in Namibia. – NDN Staffer
