Known for its innovation and high academic standards, Boston City Campus & Business College is introducing a new first in tertiary education in South Africa.
As one of South Africa’s leading academic institutions, Boston City Campus & Business College focuses on a well-rounded education, both academically and practically.
From January 2019, Boston students will be further supported through the introduction of the new Graduate + programme. This innovative programme emphasises the confidence that Boston and the market has placed in the high quality of its qualification.
Through the programme there is now an underlying guarantee that the Boston graduate will either be assisted in their job search or find employment or receive complementary further studies to enhance the graduate’s employability. Graduates can also potentially receive R50,000 from Boston.
“The Graduate + programme is part of the Boston ethos of putting our students at the centre of our educational offering. We want our students to know that they are supported through the entire process of getting a qualification – from the first day of their studies right through to completion and finding a job.
“Boston will support the student to ensure that he or she has the requisite knowledge, skills and attitude to tackle the market and be equipped for the 4th Industrial revolution,” says Boston CEO Ari Katz.
Katz aims to create a personalised learning experience which meets the educational and work environment needs of each student.
“This is facilitated through top academic instruction, accompanied by the opportunity to develop practical skills by exposing students to real workplace environments,” says Katz who believes in enabling students to differentiate themselves in the competitive workplace market.
To this end the institution’s rigorous academic programmes are reinforced by a combination of academic support, and experience in the corresponding industry through Boston’s dynamic Work Integrated Learning Programme. “Students need to be equipped with workplace skills. Applying their academic knowledge in a real-life context gives them a practical learning environment to do just that,” says Katz about the programme which also teaches students how to go out there and get a job in their particular industry.
Students are kept in line with the latest developments in their particular field, both from their studies and through their workplace opportunities.
