Completing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree will equip you with the business knowledge, communication skills, ethical and legal expertise, and critical thinking skills that you will need to adapt and thrive in a changing global environment.

To obtain a BBA degree, you will complete 120+ units (course credits) with specific requirements within those units. As you advance in your studies, you will declare a concentration(s) suited to your career goals.
