On Monday, September 22nd, 2014, our 2014 University of Sunderland BA (Hons) Business Management (BABM) full-time cohort was warmly welcomed to the SBCS community during orientation sessions which were held both at our Champs Fleurs and San Fernando campuses. The attendees were quite attentive during these sessions where Course Administrators for the BABM programme shared all the relevant information needed for their success in this programme. Among the details provided were the structure of the programme, University regulations, assessments and SBCS new E-Learning Platform -Moodle.
Our Student Services team enhanced the session by highlighting the many exciting events hosted by SBCS to enrich our students’ experience while studying with us. Graduates from the programme were present and shared their experiences on studying techniques, research tips, lecturing styles and time management.
Members of our Library staff were also on hand to introduce the students to the online academic database EBSCO, which is used for conducting research. Their presentation covered its various features and benefits by demonstrating navigation of the website and the use of Boolean to narrow or expand a search.
We wish our BABM September 2014 intake all the best, as we look forward to a productive semester. We stand ready to assist in making this a great experience for our students.
