London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA) has announced a new partnership with University of East London (UEL). The collaboration will allow LCCA to offer franchised top-up courses in business management and hospitality management.
BA (Hons) business management (top up) and BA (Hons) hospitality management (top up) are level 6 higher education programmes which will be delivered by LCCA and validated by UEL. The one-year long courses are for students who have completed a two year Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification.
This is a big leap forward for LCCA in achieving its vision of becoming an institution known for the quality of its offering
The business management degree looks to encourage students to develop the skills and competencies relevant to their roles as future managers, in order to enhance employability, and boost interpersonal and transferable skills. After successful completion of the programme, it is envisaged that students will be able to work in the banking, finance, accounting and related industries.
The core aim of the hospitality management degree is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for careers in the hospitality sector. Upon programme completion, students should have access to a wide career spectrum: the travel and hotel industries, event management, food and beverage sector, entertainment industry, and many more.
