Earn a BBA with a Specialization

Make your CV stand out from other BBA graduates. Choose from 8 BBA specialization topics that could set your career apart.

How BBA specializations work

A specialization, like a college major, is a specific set of subjects on top of your core BBA. You’ll need to complete 26 core BBA courses as well as four specialization courses, that’s a total of 30 courses. Each focused series of courses includes hands-on projects and culminates in a specialization with your degree. The courses concentrate your knowledge in a particular area. How to choose a BBA specialization at Nexford? Choose from one of eight specializations below.

To build our BBA with specialization, we analyzed 30 million jobs and surveyed industry leaders – including those from Microsoft, Citibank, and Unilever. A Nexford BBA is designed for highly motivated professionals ready to kick-start their work lives. So, whether you’re jumpstarting your career or launching a startup idea, you’ll learn how to succeed in modern, global business.

Upon graduation, you’ll walk away with a specialization certificate on top of your BBA diploma. Plus, after you graduate, you can even top up your degree up with another specialization – that's two specializations and an BBA degree!

I got attracted to Nexford because I was working for an online program that is flexible. I’m not someone who is a traditional person. I’m not a traditional learner. I like to learn at my own pace. And I like to learn hands-on.
