An accredited qualification is the key that opens the door to a future career
Encouraging prospective students to draft their new year’s resolutions around self-improvement and education, the director of the Southern Business School Namibia, Mr Albin Jacobs, stressed the importance of a commitment to education, saying “make the commitment and tell your friends and family about this resolution and amaze them with actually keeping to your resolutions well passed February and all the way to the conclusion of your course or degree and be rewarded with an accredited degree in one of the many fields of study that SBS Namibia has on offer.”
“Instead of just talking about doing something positive in 2019, actually do it and empower yourself and boost your education and career. Let self-improvement and education guide your resolutions for 2019,” he advised.
Explaining how easy it is to become a Southern Business School student, Jacobs continued “Life these days is all about convenience and distance learning makes it as convenient as possible. It’s easy to apply and register online for the course of your choosing. There’s even a road shows that Southern Business School organises so you can register. Your course material is sent to you or to a convenient location and exams are written in 15 exam centres across the country. There really is no excuse to not stick to your resolution of getting educated in 2019.”
“Resolving to educate yourself further means that you are making a promise to yourself to invest in broadening your knowledge and expanding your intellectual horizons. Staying the course in 2019 and starting to study may lead to improving your position within the company or organisation that you are working for,” he said.
Achieve that promotion you have had your eye on, or make the switch to the career or company that you have always dreamed of. Like all resolutions this takes real commitment and discipline and in this regard, academic institutions like the Southern Business School play an important role, he continued.
“Distance Learning and e-learning are becoming an integral and vital part of the educational landscape with many advantages. People often don’t think and realise that distance learning is a real viable option, providing you choose a properly NQA-accredited institution that provides quality education,” he said.
“Modern technology also helps you be disciplined and keep the promise you made to yourself. Internet, e-mail and other forms of technology ensure access to a wealth of up-to-date information for distance students. Motivation, or lack of it, is usually the reason why resolutions fall by the wayside by mid-February. Through the network that Distance Learning institutions like SBS Namibia provide, you will definitely stay motivated and keep your eye on the prize. You’re not learning in isolation, your network of other students, lecturers and tutors are all online and act as a support structure. This is all part of the education process in distance learning. There are even dedicated forums and chatrooms online for the students to interact and share ideas,” he concluded.
