University TOP-up degree

Several Universities offer a TOP-up degree program. The Higher National Diploma gives acces to the Business Management (Hons) TOP-up degree. A TOP-up program is designed for students who want to build on a business-related foundation degree: HND.

HND degree can be upgraded to a Bachelor’s (Hons) degree. A student graduates with significantly enhanced employment prospects. With an emphasis on practical skills development, the program helps to develop expertise in project management, report writing, presenting, strategic thinking, teamwork and leadership. Working with case studies to illustrate the application of business theory to real-world scenarios and host a series of guest lectures will give insight into the sector of business management, including sales, marketing, human resource management, procurement, logistics and international business.
