Your development

At HELBUS, we strive to develop well-rounded business professionals that are capable of meeting the challenges facing modern business. Our international study environment will inspire you to dream big and provide you with the tools you need to see your dreams come to life.

Our curriculum has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and experience you need in order to succeed in international business with clear progression and development right from level four (equivalent to the first year of the Bachelor’s), right the way through to level seven and the MBA. As you progress through your studies, your competencies will grow across all the key business functions, as will your confidence in your own abilities, strengths and capacity to achieve.


Level four refers to the academic standard of the first year of your bachelor studies. The modules that you will encounter here are focused on providing a solid foundation of core learning in practical skills, research competencies and both self- and directed-learning. You will explore the basic concepts of business and learn how these are affected by and manipulate the business environment, develop transferable skills that will help you function effectively independently and in teams, and learn how to problem-solve and communicate your solutions. Level four students are expected to be flexible in their approach, able to cope under pressure, and willing to meet challenges head on.


Theoretical knowledge is useless without the ability to apply it in the workplace. At the second year of your studies you will have already developed a strong understanding of business principles, and now you will learn to utilise that foundation by evaluating alternative approaches to new challenges and demonstrating critical-thinking in decision-making and problem-solving. As future influencers and leaders, learners will also enhance their inter- and intrapersonal skills; developing their own work habits as well as discovering how to negotiate and collaborate with others.


Nearing the end of your Bachelor programme, you will be required to take responsibility for your own learning as you build upon your prior academic work and prepare yourself for a career in business and management, or for postgraduate study. You will cover a range of topics, allowing you flexibility to explore your own personal individual interests and to further develop the competencies that best correspond to your professional aspirations. An effective researcher, writer and critical-thinker, by the time you graduate from the Bachelor’s programme you will be well-equipped to start shaping your future.


Standing out in the job market can be tough, but holding an MBA ensures that you do just that. Studying at level seven on our pre-experience MBA develops the core knowledge and skills required to succeed in all critical business areas and functions. Considered a generalist degree with a broad, inclusive approach, the focus of the qualification is in supporting career progression through enhancing critical thinking and research skills, challenging convention, and developing confidence your own ability to design knowledge-based solutions to contemporary business issues.
