In the case of single honours requirements (i.e., Honours in Business Analytics discipline and bachelor without honours in Economics discipline), the course structure is designed for students to complete in 4.5 years with a total of 180 Modular Credits (MCs).

Students may pursue either a double honours or a single honours programme.

Students pursuing DDP with single honours (i.e., honours in Information Systems) and Bachelor without honours in Economics) can choose one of the following: (1) honours dissertation (i.e. BT4101) (for Business Analytics), or (2) Industry Internship Programme (for Business Analytics). Students aiming for Honours (Highest Distinction) in Business Analytics are required to select option (1). Regardless of the choice, students are highly encouraged to select a dissertation topic or internship assignment that covers both economics and information systems domain.

 

Notes:

(1) USP/U-Town students are not required to read FAS1101. USP/UTown students may replace FAS1101 with UWC2101, UTW1001, or UTW2001. In the event that you exit from USP without having read UWC2101, UTW1001 or UTW2001, you would need to read FAS1101and IS2101 respectively to count towards the FASS degree’s requirements and its CAP.

(2) Students who are admitted into the DDP after the first year of studies are also required to read FAS1101, FAS1103 and CFG1002.  This is because these three modules have to be completed within the first year of study.  

(3) Students in this DDP need not read and pass GET1050 Computational Reasoning to fulfil the University's Computational Thinking requirement although this is an identified module for FASS students. This is because this requirement is already fulfilled within the Business Analytics degree requirements. Therefore, please take steps to choose another GET module to fulfil your GET pillar requirement. The grade and credits of the Business Analytics module (CS1010S) will count towards the BZA degree requirement only.

DDP students whose home faculty is FASS - in the event that you exit from the DDP and have not read the identified Computational Thinking Module offered by the School of Computing (i.e. CS1010S), you would need to read GET1050. This will likely be counted towards your unrestricted elective requirement and may potentially be an excess module, if you have already read another GET module. Do note that for excess modules read, the grades will still be factored into your CAP.

DDP students whose home faculty is School of Computing - there is no impact if you were to exit from the DDP as CS1010S is a core requirement of your Business Analytics degree. Please read a GET module other than GET1050 to fulfil your Thinking & Expression pillar.

EC1301 can only be used to satisfy the UE requirement but not the Social Sciences exposure requirements. Hence, DDP students have to read another Social Sciences exposure module (such as NM1101E or PL110E or SC1101E) to complete the FASS’ faculty core requirements.
