About The Business Faculty

In the Business Faculty, we focus on providing help and guidance in business-related subjects. We are all graduates in subjects ranging from Accounting and Human Resources to Economics. So, we are well equipped to advise business students, no matter what business-related subject they may be studying.

Due to its popularity, the Business Faculty consists of 15 Advisers. We each have a specialisation, and so form a versatile team. If a student shares a problem with us, we will first make sure that we understand their problem, then research the problem, and show the student where to get the answers that they seek.
