What can you do with a Business Administration degree?

What can I do with a Business Administration degree?

  1. Apply your business knowledge across multiple disciplines
    While most degrees, especially at the bachelor’s level, are more about theory, BBA degrees are a combination of theory, practical knowledge application, and personality development. During your Business Administration degree, you'll also learn many different skills that will set you up for future success. The different disciplines covered in a BBA degree are marketing, accounting, strategic management, human resources management, and organizational behavior — all of which you can apply to your work life right away.
  2. Improve your employability
    Students can get placed in good companies right after getting their BBA degrees and have a higher employment rate than those without a BBA.
  3. Once graduated, step into an MBA
    A BBA degree is excellent preparation for an MBA. You are mostly taught the same things, but you delve much deeper into the subject in an MBA, moving to a more advanced understanding of each topic. If you take a BBA, you'll know the fundamentals well and are better prepared for when you study your MBA.
  4. Receive a higher salary at work
    With your Business Administration degree, you open doors to the best managerial and administrative professions — where the salary and benefits are the best. You're also likely to get promoted faster, and when you switch companies, you can get a sizeable increase in pay as well (but that also depends on your negotiation skills).
