CAO: Choosing your options
You can choose from lots of combinations of options on the Bachelor of Business (Hons) – as you can see from the image below (taken directly from the CAO handbook). However, the most important thing to remember is that it does not matter which combination you choose through the CAO. Once you start in WIT in September, you can change both your specialisation and your language options. In fact, you only have to finalise your specialisation option at the end of Year 2. This will give you extra time to figure out which area you are really interested and choose the specialism that is right for you.
