Five Tips for Completing Your Bachelor in Business

A bachelor’s degree is your ticket to better job opportunities and higher pay over your career. Today, 90 per cent of jobs with the fastest rates of growth—such as those in science, technology, engineering, and math—require some form of post-high school education, according to the Department of Statistics Malaysia. By 2021, 65 per cent of all jobs will require training beyond high school.

With a bachelor’s degree, you’re far less likely to be unemployed than people with only a high school diploma. And you’re more likely to have a job that provides health and retirement benefits, giving you a better quality of life.

So it’s no surprise that more people than ever are returning to complete their degrees. And their lives, like yours, look a whole lot different from those of traditional 18 to 21 years old college students who have parents paying the bills. Today, 75 per cent of college students in Malaysia are working-age between 25 and 45 years old.

Five Tips for Completing Your Bachelor’s Degree

You recognize the importance to your future of getting a bachelor’s degree, and now you’re ready to take the next steps. Whether you’ve been out of school for two years or 20, you’re wondering how to make a degree-completion program work. We’ve talked with students who’ve successfully completed their bachelor’s degree at Lesley, and they came back with these five tips for ensuring that you’ll achieve your dream of finishing your bachelor’s degree.

1. Be clear about why you’re getting a degree. 

Whether you’re taking your existing career to the next level or going in a new direction, you want to be able to answer the question: “Will this degree get me where I want to go?”

2. Maximize your credits. 

Look for a school that will help you identify credits for work experience, professional training, or college courses you’ve already completed. (For example, you could receive up to 90 credits toward your bachelor’s degree from Lesley in our campus-based and online programs.) The more credits you identify, the fewer credits you’ll need to earn, which helps reduce costs.

3. Play detective.

Investigate financial aid availability at colleges you are interested in; look into student and private loans, and scholarships. Bachelor’s degree completion programs are often less expensive overall than traditional on-campus undergraduate programs.

4. Pace yourself. 

Take small steps to get back into practice as a student; take one or two classes at the beginning to build your confidence.

5. Build a support network. 

There’s no stigma in asking for help from professors, staff, or your advisor, or in taking advantage of tutoring and mentoring that the college provides. And getting support outside of school from family members or friends can help you stay on track by holding you accountable.

At Mantissa College, we deliver the Bachelor of Business Administration programme, a programme in collaboration with Paris Graduate School of Management, France. Meaning that students will have the opportunity to study with us here at Mantissa College, in Malaysia and get an accredited French Qualification. 

This BBA programme enables post-secondary school applicants, (applicants graduated from O-Level) with five (5) credits to apply directly into the Degree (BBA) programme, without the need of going through a foundation or Diploma programme.

Mantissa College’s BBA program boasts a dynamic global network of more than 80,000 alumni. One recent alumnus, Ms Cathy, says, “I took the 3-years Bachelor of Business Administration course right after my SPM (O-Level) without needed to go through Foundation or Diploma programme. The syllabus teaches me the basics elements needed in the business field. The programme also enables me to learn from real people with real problems. Thanks to the diverse and up-to-date programme syllabus, I am now capable of taking up more projects because I had been exposed to a wider perspective on handling matters from my learning experience.”

Certainly, evidence attests to the tremendous value of the BBA Programme. Between its focus on this learning style and many other desirable attributes, Mantissa College’s Bachelor of Business Administration offers an invaluable inside edge for aspiring business leaders
