‘Business Support International’ (BSI) is proud to have been an integral part of the ‘International Independent Business University’ (IIBU) from the time the idea of the university was still a twinkle in the founder’s eye and remained involved since the university launch in 2010.

 

images vvvvIIBU courses are aimed at providing academic content, relevant to the busy business owner, company director, business advisors and other entrepreneurs and business students and are focused on practical training in the key areas of concern and relevance to these individuals who will mostly be busy within their businesses and requiring their course content and training to focus on subject matter both relevant to their day to day business in a practical and hands-on way.

This content was originally structured into a formal graduate degree programme, the MBArts (Master of Business Arts) and was registered as such with the State of California as an approved ‘Masters’ level programme.

However, in the light of the apparent needs of the business people the course is aimed at and who show interest in the programme, IIBU later reviewed the MBArts business model and it was decided, with the agreement of the State of California, that IIBU would not offer the Master level degree program as a whole, but, instead, would offer the individual MBArts modules created as individual training pieces, allowing the learners to pick and choose which modules are most relevant to their particular needs and which they would like to pursue, rather than being compelled to commit to a complete Masters programme.

Therefore, the IIBU – ‘Business Arts Certificate Programme’ (BACP) is designed for Business Owners, Directors, Advisors and other entrepreneurs and business students, who are looking to acquire new skills to grow their businesses or support their clients. There are 63 separate modules organised into 7 key skill areas:

Skill Area 1 – BUSINESS PLANNING.bus_stud
Skill Area 2 – ACCOUNTING & FINANCE.
Skill Area 3 – SALES & MARKETING.
Skill Area 4 – OPERATIONS.
Skill Area 5 – MANAGING PEOPLE.
Skill Area 6 – MANAGEMENT & USE of TECHNOLOGY.
Skill Area 7 – EXITING A BUSINESS.

Modules may be taken individually or in a sequence within a specific skill area to earn a ‘Business Arts Certificate’, awarded upon successful completion of 4 modules in any specific Skill Area 1-7.
