So the degree as a whole will be the main thing assisting with getting a job.
My take on those though, Advanced programming, very useful if you want to be a architect at some point in your career. Business management, probably useful if you want to go more business analyst/project management or tech lead track. Audit, I don't have an opinion of that.

Why do you feel it wouldn't be a good choice in South Africa?

Cause it doesn't advance your knowledge or burning things, looting public funds and further enabling corruption. Afterall, that's where the big bucks are.

I completed COS3711 about 7 years ago. If it is similar to what it used to be, I would highly recommend it. There is, however, a large workload. I must have used +-200hrs of study time instead of the 120hrs of study time that they suggest.

They affect what you take in 3rd level

I love programming but I don't know if its the right path to choose in south africa. I registered a Bsc in Informatics at unisa. and the third year require you to choose 1 module between ;1.AUI3702 - The Internal Audit Process: Test of Controls, 2.COS3711 - Advanced Programming, 3. MNB3701 - Global Business Management IA. which one is relevant and will enable me to find a job
I took MNB3701. It has definitely proved to be useful in business.
I am a software developer but business-wise it certainly helps.

AUI3702: Don't bother with this. You likely will never use it in your job as a traditional software developer. It's a whole bunch of theory that you'll fall asleep reading unless you have a passion for auditing.

COS3711: If you are already programming with ease and are confident in passing an advanced level module then put in the study time and do this.

MNB3701: This is the one I did. It's a fairly straight forward pass and gives you management level understanding. Useful if you are going to transition into a team lead/manager role, or just to understand that role better while being a developer. Was quite interesting.

Once working as a developer, you'll learn the advanced programming concepts better on the job. The degree is to get your foot into the job market.
