Benchmark for Business Related Studies

The benchmarks for Bachelor of Business Related Studies (BBS) , have been developed as one of the set milestones for the development of an East African Quality Assurance System. The benchmarks are aimed at providing an important process of harmonisation of business and related studies and should be beneficial to all the players in higher education sub-sector. Thus, the main objective of this process is to harmonise all business and related studies in order to provide a baseline for comparability in business and related curriculum within the region. This is in cognizance of the fact that business related programmes aims at providing theoretical and practical knowledge and skills that lead to improved planning, organisation, implementation and control of business and economic activities.

The benchmarks are not a checklist for ticking off. They are to be used as a yardstick or a point of reference, and not as absolute standards.
