Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is a bachelor's degree in business administration awarded by colleges and universities after completion of undergraduate study by colleges and universities in the fundamentals of business management and usually including advanced courses in accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, strategic management, supply chain management, and other key academic subjects associated with the academic discipline of business management.

Curriculum structure[edit]


The degree is designed to give a broad knowledge of the functional aspects of a company and their interconnection, while also allowing specialization in a particular area.[1] BBA programs thus expose students to a variety of "core subjects" and generally allow students to specialize in a specific academic area; see aside.

The degree also develops the student's practical, managerial and communication skills, and business decision-making capability. Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of case projects, presentations, internships, industrial visits, and interaction with experts from the industry.[2]

General educational requirements emphasize humanities and social sciences (history, economics, and literature). Coverage of mathematics is generally business related, and is often limited to "Quantitative Applications for Business" or, alternatively, courses in Calculus for business or Calculus 101, and business- or general-statistics.


The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), is a quantitative variant on the BBA. General educational requirements are relatively mathematics intensive; furthermore, the general focus may also be more analytic, often allowing additional quantitative optional coursework.


Particularly in the United States, undergraduate business administration programs may be accredited, thus indicating that the school's educational curriculum meets specific quality standards.[3]
