Business administration is one of the most popular business degrees you can study, and it can lead to a wide range of careers after graduation. It gives you a good understanding of a range of business principles, as well as management, communication and decision making skills.

There are many business administration degree programs available all over the world, so your study abroad options will be huge. Studying abroad means you’ll get to learn and experience business practices in a new country, giving you a valuable new perspective on the subject.

Studying abroad is also a great opportunity to broaden your personal horizons, meet new people, and improve your language skills. Most employers look favorably on graduates who have studied abroad, as it shows your willingness to try new things.

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
