Business Administration program structure

You can study business administration at associate and bachelor’s level. Bachelor’s are offered as BA, BSc or BBAs. BBA is a Bachelor of Business Administration, and can be more focussed on administration subjects than a BA or BSc. Bachelor’s in business administration typically take three or four years to complete.

At postgraduate level, an MBA (Master of Business Administration) is regarded as a prestigious qualification. They are often studied by students who have several years of work experience in the business sector, and want to pursue a leadership role. An MBA usually takes two full years to complete, but some business schools do offer intensive one year courses.

Business administration is sometimes seen as offering an all-round business education, therefore the program content can be quite varied. Modules and topics that most programs cover include:

  • Accounting and finance
  • Marketing
  • Supply chain and operations management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Human resource management
  • Information systems
  • International business issues
  • Business law
  • Management strategy
  • Digital marketing
