A Matter of Priorities

A Matter of Priorities

The Faculty's submissions show that the the job of meeting student demand for B.C.A. courses will take a lower priority in the Commerce Faculty's development over the next quinquennium compared to other of its goals.

The submissions place great emphasis on introducing new postgraduate courses (A Master of Management degree which would be a "private sector" equivalent of the existing Master of Public Policy), expanding existing postgraduate courses, expanding Faculty activities in "management development programmes", and enlarging the volume of research undertaken within the Faculty.

In a revealing statement the submissions argue: "In the light of the overall pattern of national development it is clear that the Faculty's future role is going to be more important. Even greater attention is going to be devoted to: economic issues, the role of government, and problems of business management and public sector administration."

The question Commerce students need to ask Professor Fogelburg and his colleagues is this: if "greater attention" is going to be devoted to these things, will less attention be devoted to the task of teaching the B.C.A. degree to the large number of present and future university students who want to complete this basic commerce qualification?
