Business Programmes

Bhutan's First and Only A+ Accredited Institution      Inspiring Education in Bhutan

Business students at RTC initially enter into the Business Foundations programme for a year without pre-selecting either the BBA or BCom course. After the first year, depending on the major they placed in (Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, General Management), students will continue in the second and third year as either BBA or BCom Students. The total duration of the business programmes at RTC is three years.

 

Business Foundations 

The first two semesters (1 year) will comprise a common foundation year for both BBA and BCom. The foundation year will prepare students for either course by providing them with necessary skills in IT, language, quantitative analysis, and by introducing them to basic functional knowledge, skills, and theoretical foundations of business. At the end of the first year, students have the opportunity to submit their preferences for whether they want to continue with General Management, Marketing, or Human Resources Management majors (in which case they become BBA students) or with either the Accounting or Finance majors (in which case they become BCom students), for the remaining two years. Students will be placed in majors based on preference and availability of slots -- not all majors will be offered every year.
